Research Note : Contrary Evidence on the Economic Impact of the Super Bowl on the Victorious City

Author

Abstract

Previous research has indicated a surprising statistically significant impact on the local economy in the city that wins the Super Bowl. An analysis of personal income growth in victorious Super Bowl cities from 1972-2000 cannot further confirm these results, finding no statistically significant effect on the local economies of these cities.
