Over the past six years alone, the economic impact of premier events such as Super Bowl LII, NCAA Men’s Final Four, ESPN X Games, Ryder Cup, and most recently the NCAA Women’s Final Four have generated hundreds of millions for our state, enhanced our reputation, and brought national and international recognition.
