Mercedes-Benz will not renew the naming rights to the Louisiana Superdome. The home of the New Orleans Saints is looking for a new partner. Adult webcam site Stripchat says they are willing to bid as much as $15 million to name the iconic building the Stripchat Superdome.

Max Bennett of Stripchat says New Orleans is the perfect fit for their company.

"In our opinion, New Orleans is the party capital of the United States. It’s always been synonymous with nightlife and entertainment. It comes alive at night, with people wandering the neon-hued promenade of one the most famous nightlife strips in the world – Bourbon Street. Aside from being known for its rich Cajun cuisine, array of alcoholic drinks (The Sazerac, brandy milk punch, Pimms Cup, Vieux Carre, the French 75, the Hurricane, and of course, the Hand Grenade) and beads, New Orleans is synonymous with football. More specifically, the New Orleans Saints."

Mercedes-Benz has secured the naming rights to the new arena in downtown Atlanta and hitched their wagon to the Atlanta Falcons.
