    If that was the case, I'd be defending Dodge ball as the greatest sport because that was my first 'ball' I played with as a toddler.
    It's funny because I meant to type kids instead of loss and my phone corrected it... Defend dodgeball as the greatest sport ever... Now!

    The 1994 Cup also had a $4 billion economic impact on the country. And recognition of that colossal revenue has Nashville leaders working hard to get U.S. Soccer’s attention.

    The effect of 12 Super Bowls
    What makes the World Cup the ultimate cash cow of sporting events are its duration and global appeal. Where a Super Bowl might bring American fans to a host city for a weekend, the Cup draws weeklong stays from across an international market. That involves spending money in Nashville hotels, restaurants, shops, entertainment venues, and so on — for the whole trip.
    “International travelers that come would stay longer — their vacations are extended,” Spyridon said. “You’re going to get fans that come to the game, fans that come just to participate in the World Cup event, and fans that want to visit three to four cities as part of their World Cup vacation.”
    According to an economic impact study commissioned by U.S. Soccer, each American host city would rake in $400 million to $600 million based on today’s dollar value. The study also said the World Cup would create between 5,000 and 8,000 temporary jobs in each host city.
    Jeff Cohen, a principal at AECOM, the firm that conducted the study (as well as similar studies of the 1994 World Cup and multiple Olympics), said the overall dollar effect would be equivalent to a dozen Super Bowls.
    Many Cup attendees come simply for the atmosphere of the world’s biggest sporting event, to watch the best soccer in bars with fans from across the globe. But with LP Field seating just under 69,000 (Spyridon expects seating to be added for a World Cup), five assured sellouts in a month adds throngs of ticket-holders to downtown
    Hey maggs, that's great you can copy and paste something from a soccer site, but I want the actual news site that hosted that info...

    Also, maggs... Give me the numbers generated for the World Cups NOT in America.


    I find it funny that you used America for an example as to when the World Cup generated the most revenue, as well

    It's the most relevant one to the argument... It provides an actual basis for comparison. I have to say Magglis' example is very well chosen... Just saying.

    except his sample is 20 years earlier. sports can gain and lose relevancy in 20 years.

    The world cup hasn't lost any relevance since then. The only difference is it would generate even more now then it did then...
