Having hosted five Super Bowls since 1987, there’s no question that the “the Big Game” enjoys South Florida. With our world-class beaches, exquisite restaurants, and lush hotels, South Florida’s sun-kissed multicultural community is a perfect fit for this blockbuster event that brings the world together.
While we know that the Super Bowl loves South Florida, it’s critical that we understand the profound impact that one of the biggest sporting events in the world has on our region, especially during trying economic times. In addition to the priceless exposure we receive from the top-rated event in U.S. television history, the Super Bowl is also responsible for steering hundreds of millions of dollars into the coffers of local workers, small businesses, and municipal governments.
Here’s a closer look at what the two most recent Super Bowls have meant to South Florida’s regional economy:
