The Sun Belt Conference is moving its HQs into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, a move that keeps the league offices in New Orleans. The conference's first offices were in nearby Metairie from '91-'00, followed by a move to the Pan American building in downtown New Orleans. Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson said the deal with the Superdome reaffirms the conference’s commitment to the city. The Sun Belt’s men’s and women’s basketball tournaments will be played at Lakefront Arena, while the conference’s football champion plays in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. SMG Senior VP/Stadiums & Arenas Doug Thornton, whose company manages the Superdome, said having the Sun Belt as a tenant in the building “only strengthens that partnership.”
