The Benefit Of A Kansas City Super Bowl

A few weeks ago, we gauged Chiefs owner Clark Hunt's interest in hosting a Kansas City Super Bowl at Arrowhead. Of course he was down with it.

"We would certainly be interested in hosting a Super Bowl at Arrowhead. What a tremendous opportunity to showcase Kansas City, and celebrate my father's special association with the game. Kansas City would be a terrific host community for the NFL's premiere event."

One of the benefits of this, other than the freakin' Super Bowl being at Arrowhead, is the money it brings into a city. In 2007, South Florida hosted the Super Bowl and brought in over $450 million to the city, according to estimates.  Three years later, the 2010 Super Bowl in South Florida, it brought in $333 million.

A sizable difference but that's a whole hell of a lot more than zero, which is what the Chiefs and Kansas City are currently scheduled to take in Super Bowl week.

Other numbers: The average visitor spent over $400 per day (more than I usually do) and the average income of visitors was $220,000.
