It’s no surprise that the biggest day in sports leaves a huge economic impact on its hosts. This year’s game was projected to bring up to $477.5 million to Los Angeles. 150,000 visitors were expected to descend upon the city, with individuals estimated to spend around $350/night per hotel room and $300 daily during their stay.

In 2018, just the ten days leading up to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis brought $32 million in tax revenue for state and local government. Visitors spent an average of $608/day during their stay and $249/night on hotels.

From the tangible excitement surrounding the game itself to the widespread impact the Super Bowl leaves on each of its host cities, this larger-than-life event is a testament to the power of sports and the bonds they forge between players, fans, strangers, and friends.
