Economics of the Super Bowl

Victor Matheson ()

No 1001, Working Papers from International Association of Sports Economists, North American Association of Sports Economists

Abstract: The Super Bowl is America’s premier sporting event. This paper details basic economic facts about the game and examines the controversy surrounding the purported economic impact of the game on host communities. While the league and sports boosters claim that the game brings up to a $500 million economic impact to host cities, a review of the literature suggests that the true economic impact is a fraction of this amount.
