What a great game! Our great city of Houston was displayed beautifully! The Super Bowl didn’t just bring sports fans to Houston. There is good news for Houston’s economy, thanks to the Super Bowl!
According to City Controller Chris Brown, “We’re optimistic that the Super Bowl and its affiliated activities will jump-start the region’s economic recovery in 2017 as the energy industry continues to gain steam,” who adds that the city expects up to $11 million in total direct revenue (sales and hotel occupancy taxes) from Super Bowl 51. Compare that to the Houston-hosted 2004 Super Bowl, which Brown says generated roughly $3.2 million in direct revenue.
According to early figures published by the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, Super Bowl 51 was expected to deluge Houston with $350 million.That is good news for Houston. What will the coming months bring?? Well, let’s wait and see how Houston benefits and changes from this good news!
