It is now easier for Jewish New Orleans Saints fans to practice both religions — football and Judaism — at the same time.
Yesterday was the debut of a kosher concession stand at the Superdome. The Kosher Sports stand will be open for all Saints games, the Sugar Bowl and Super Bowl XLVII next February.
Jonathan Katz, president of Kosher Sports said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide our kosher roster to the great football fans of the New Orleans Saints.” Located on the Upper Concourse at section 537, the stand features all-beef hot dogs, all-beef sausages with peppers and onions, all-beef Polish sausage, pretzels, bottled soda, bottled water and bottled beer. The stand is under the local supervision of the Louisiana Kashrut Commission, while nationally the company is certified by Star-K.
Kosher Sports was founded by Katz in 2003 while he worked on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. His boss was connected to the front office for the New York Giants, and through that connection Kosher Sports was born.
Kosher Sports is now the exclusive kosher caterer at Citi Field in New York, U.S. Open Tennis Championships, Barclays Center in Brooklyn, United Center in Chicago, Oriole Park in Baltimore, American Airlines Arena in Miami, Ford Field, Ravinia Music Festival, Ford Field in Detroit, and others.
