Carolina Football Fuels Chapel Hill Visitor Economy

The 2008 UNC-Notre Dame football game generated an economic impact of $6.4 million for the Chapel Hill and Orange County economies plus $325,000 in local and state tax revenue, according a study by Nathan Tomasini of Virginia Commonwealth University's Center for Sport Leadership. "The results of this study clearly indicate the tremendous economic benefit of home football games," said UNC Director of Athletics Dick Baddour. (Tar Heel Blue)
