Significance: Location for the '65 AFL All-Star Game until players protested
Following the 1964 American Football League season, the AFL All-Star Game was scheduled to take place at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. After several black players were denied service by various hotels and businesses, black and white players both decided to boycott the game. Their efforts were successful, as the game was moved to Houston's Jeppessen Stadium. Encouraged by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this marked the first time in history an entire city had been boycotted by a professional sports event. Tulane Stadium hosted three of the first nine Super Bowls, Super Bowl IV, VI and IX.
It was demolished in 1980, making it one of three stadiums to host a Super Bowl that was torn down, along with Tampa Stadium and the Orange Bowl. Currently, the area where Tulane Stadium once stood is populated with university buildings, such as the Willow and Aron residences, the Collins Diboll Memorial Complex, and the Reily Student Recreation Center. A plan is underway to build a new Tulane Stadium, and rumor has it that it will be built near the old location by fall 2014.
