WASHINGTON -- The Saints will go marching in to the White House next month.

President Barack Obama will welcome the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints on Aug. 9.

The Saints electrified their city and fans by beating the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17, in February.

Obama is an avid sports fan who invites most major professional and college championship teams to the White House. The administration said Wednesday the Saints will incorporate community service activities into their trip, as do most visiting teams.
