The Superdome in New Orleans will be getting a new name.

According to Nola.com, Mercedes-Benz which currently has the naming rights to the Superdome, won't renew next year.

New Orleans Saints spokesman Greg Bensel confirmed the report on Tuesday saying that decision not to renew was due to Mercedes-Benz "having other opportunities."

The naming rights will expire in July 2021. A new sponsor will be sought by the Superdome.

The stadium opened its doors in 1975 as the Louisiana Superdome, hosting many major events since.
