Sports complex expects $5 million impact
Martinsville Bulletin
The Smith River Sports Complex could bring nearly $5 million into the area during the course of this fiscal year, according to Billy Russo, its director of operations. The complex arrived at the figure of $4,995,000 using an economic impact formula from the National Association of Sports Commissions, Russo said. There are a number of factors that enter into the formula, but basically, it takes the number of people who are expected to spend the night in the Henry County/Martinsville area because of events at the complex, and then multiplies that number by $150 per person.

E-pulltab haul for new Vikings stadium is zero in 1st year
Star Tribune
Electronic gambling, which hit Minnesota bars with great fanfare last September, did not raise a dime for the glassy new Vikings football stadium this year. Minnesotans plunked down $15 million over the past year to play the electronic games, but 85 percent bounced back to players as prizes, new state figures show. That left about $2 million to be divided among charity expenses, donations and taxes — nowhere near the original projection of $35 million in taxes for the first year.

Sports Illustrated
Being able to use Wireless technology in some cases saves battery life and is usually faster when on the go versus the traditional 3G/4G that is currently out there. It looks like the Pac-12 Conference is among the first of the major conferences to start the process to make it easier for the fans of College Football to be connected as fast as they are in their homes and their workplace in the football stadiums they migrate to every Saturday to watch their favorite team play.

There's no place like home: How sports venues play a role in the game
The Vista
Sports are unique because they have a long and well-documented history. There are only a few ways to score a basket or a touchdown or a goal, but there are infinite ways to win a game. No two games are exactly alike. They all tell a different story. These games are all played on the same fields of play, but the environments in which they are played vary as much as the games being played there. The basic dimensions of the court or the field are the same, but the similarities end there.
