Tulane Stadium was an outdoor football stadium located in New Orleans from 1926 to 1980. Officially known as the Third Tulane Stadium, it replaced the "Second Tulane Stadium" where the Telephone Exchange Building is now located. The former site is currently bound by Willow Street to the south, Ben Weiner Drive to the east, the Tulane University property line west of McAlister Place, and the Hertz Basketball/Volleyball Practice Facility and the George G. “Sunny” Westfeldt Practice and Competition Facility to the north.
The stadium hosted three of the first nine Super Bowls in 1970, 1972, and 1975.
