The construction of Major League stadiums has been booming across North America since the early nineteen nineties. The question becomes whether or not the promised benefits from team owners to sway government officials is really worth the millions of dollars invested on these venues. I set my research out to determine whether these vastly large investments bring an economic impact to a given metropolitan area. This topic has been previously researched therefore I based my research off of previous studies on this topic. Various different variables were used to collected data from government resources to accurately depict the economic impact. My research will be collected to look into the economic impact of venues in the National Football League between 1990-2013 to determine the impact on metropolitan areas across the United States, to ultimately predict how the Minnesota Vikings stadium when completed will affect the Minneapolis metropolitan area.
