Sports & Our Local Economy

This week on ┬áStay Tuned we’re talking about the connection between the city we call home and our home teams. With things like Ballpark Village, and the possibility of the Rams leaving making local headlines, we’re having the conversation about how our identity and our economy are connected to sports. Is it possible to have an economically viable cultural scene as well as thriving sports culture? Should we orient development around our sporting venues? Is there really merit to the argument that ‘top tier city’ status relies on big sports franchises?

Another way to say, ‘top-tier city,’ is ‘major league city,’ because it is tied to major league teams.”
