Richardson, TX (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
Even people who are not sports fans know that sports are big business. However, some sports have a bigger impact on the economy than others and not all make as much money as their sponsor committees had hoped. According to Brent Coralli, CEO of Sting Soccer, who just posted on his blog The Economic Impact of Sports, You might be surprised at the types of sporting events which have the most positive economic impact.
It seems logical that the huge sporting events such as The Super Bowl, The Olympics and the NCAA Basketball Tournament would generate billions of dollars in revenue, and they do. However, at what cost? Is there any profit left after expenses and do the businesses located in the proximity to these events really benefit?
Before answering that question, its interesting to look at a few recent or upcoming sporting events. As Coralli noted, it might be surprising.
The Big Games Generate Revenue
A couple of weeks ago, the Florida State Seminoles beat the Auburn Tigers to win the BCS College Football Championship and during the media hype leading up to the game, it was reported that visitors to Auburns home football games inject some $ 50 million of direct spending into the local economy over the course of a single season, which is among the biggest economic impacts in college football. Florida State may not come close to comparing, but even the not-so-compelling Seminoles home games generate between $ 1.5 and $ 3 million in visitor spending per game.
On February 2, 2014, the NFL will crown a new champion after Super Bowl XLVII is played in MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The TV spots on this once-a-year media juggernaut are averaging $ 4 million each, but that is only part of the economics of this event. Just of few of the other activities in the New York City area include:
