Super Bowl LII Has Bold North Results: $450M Economic Impact To Minneapolis

By Barry Janoff

May 29, 2018: It turns out that the Philadelphia Eagles were not the only group that had a winning experience in Minneapolis during Super Bowl LII.

Last week, the NFL named the host stadiums for Super Bowl LVII (University of Phoenix, Glendale, AZ) in 2023 and Super Bowl LVIII (Mercedes-Benz SuperDome, New Orleans) in 2024.

Minneapolis, which hosted Super Bowl LII this past February, today confirmed some of the reasons why NFL cities want to host the Big Game.

Under the title, Super Bowl LII: The Bold North Delivers, members of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee and their "Bold North" umbrella initiative unveiled an economic impact report for the region from the game and surrounding events between Jan. 26-Feb. 5.

The lead: The region realized more than $450 million in economic impact, almost $50 more than anticipated.

Even subtracting $80 million for displaced tourism — money that would have been spent by people who stayed away from the area due to the Super Bowl — the area realized some $350 million in spend from visitors who came to see the Eagles play, and defeat, the New England Patriots.

Among the categories in which the most money was spent: $81.6 million (30%) went for accommodations, $61.3 million (235) for food and beverage, $34.5 million (13%) for entertainment and $28.5 million (11%) for retail-shopping.

The report was unveiled today during a media conference with Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and members of the Host Committee, with the numbers themselves coming from Rockport Analytics, West Chester, PA.

Among the numbers, Super Bowl LII generated more than $273 million in wages, enough to support nearly 5,500 annual jobs, generating incremental state and local tax receipts of more than $32 million.

By comparison, the impact of Super Bowl LI in 2017 was driven by an incremental $347 million of new spending to Greater Houston, which originated from the local travel spending of 150,000 visitors (not including game tickets), according to the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee.

And Super Bowl 50 in 2016 had an economic impact of upward of $350 million to the San Francisco Bay Area, according to Rockport Analytics.

More than 95% of the estimated 125,000 Super Bowl LII visitors were from outside Minnesota, with 6% of them from outside the country.

The remaining 5% came from within Minnesota but stayed overnight in paid rooms or traveled more than 50 miles away on a day trip.

The average length of stay among visitors was 3.9 days, with each person spending an average of $608.

For every two ticket holders, there was one additional visitor who came to Minneapolis but did not attend the game, according to the report.

More than half of the visitors were between the ages 35-54. Some 70% of those who visited the area have household incomes of more than $100,000.

The majority, 71%, were men. Their average age was 47 and almost half earned at least $150,000 a year.


In addition to the game itself, the festivities during a ten-day period leading to the game in U.S. Bank Stadium Stadium on Feb. 4 included Super Bowl Live presented by Verizon (on Nicollet Mall) and the NFL Fan Gallery inside the Mall of America.

There were also an estimated 150+: Super Bowl-related parties and events across the Twin Cities during ten-day event.

All told, more than one million people came to Super Bowl Live presented by Verizon, including people from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota and and visitors, the U.S. and worldwide.

Some 1.4 million people visited Mall of America.

Something for which upcoming Super Bowl host cities can aim: 83% of first-time visitors said they planned to return.

“Minnesota promised the ‘Bold North’ and we delivered,” Gov. Dayton said during the media conference.
