Big Sporting Events Mean Big Bucks for Omaha
Omaha, NE - Big sporting events in Omaha mean big bucks to the city.
The Omaha Sports Commission says the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials last summer, the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in January, and the Battles on Ice generated around $50 million dollars in revenue.
Omaha was in the national spotlight as more than 250,000 people saw the events in person and millions watched on television.
The cash could keep rolling in as Omaha welcomes the Short Track Speedskating Championships later this month.
