The Impact of the World Series on Arizona

As we all know we recently were in the World Series and we were all excited about this since it had been 22 years since we were in a World Series which happened to be the only one we have ever won. But besides the loss this year Arizona got a huge boost in tourist money and revenue. Although we weren’t expecting the D-backs to go into the World Series a lot of places were ready for mega events like this one since we get a couple each year. We don’t have that much information yet since it had just happened but here is what we can expect.


Josh Coddington with the Arizona Office of Tourism Cited numbers From Arizona State University researchers that show the Super Bowl in February ranked at $1.4 Billion. But later in the year, there was the Phoenix Open that brought in $227 million and the Fiesta Bowl at $170 million. All the games that are being played here at home have been entirely sold out with the cheapest ticket being $400 to $600. Chase Field is the 5th largest major league stadium in the U.S. and holds up to 48,000 fans. But even if you couldn’t buy a ticket you and your friends/family could’ve gone to any bar or restaurant in Arizona and watched the game. 


Many bars and restaurants can expect many fans to flock in to watch the exciting games and they could also expect a lot of revenue. Plus many fans who come from all over the country might want to stay since Arizona currently is one of the fastest growing states in the country!

Danny Seiden president and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce stated “We’ll take the Dallas residents who want to come by and realize the better state than Texas – not just for sports but also for living”. Sports have a huge impact on the Arizona economy since the weather is usually perfect for the majority of sports. From soccer to Nascar Arizona is the hotspot for major sporting events in the United States.

But Even though the Dbacks had lost the World Series the rest of Arizona got a big W and enjoyed watching our team in one of the most exciting World Series to happen in a while. 

I guess Arizona knows how to Embrace the Chaos!

About the Contributor
Ivan Amador
Ivan Amador, News Reporter
Being fun creative and adventurous is a lot of things people want to have in a person, but when I met Ivan Amador, a News Reporter in Journalism, he fit that criteria for everyone. Being friends with Ivan can prove to you that it would be the greatest decision of your life. This guy has a lot of energy in order to keep the hype up for a group of people and friends. I think of Ivan when I interviewed him as a loyal man with definitely a lot of free will, that he is able to just live his life the way he wants to. When it comes to the future I definitely see that he would be the best news reporter in Journalism to bring energy and amazing work to the class.  Ivan loves lasagna, he finds it an incredible Italian food that he thinks “it’s impossible to mess up and it’s easy to make”. He finds it more of his favorite to the point where he would eat lasagna as his only meal for the rest of his life. To go along with that he also likes to add his favorite drink, which is a Hispanic drink called Fresca, he describes it like it was Sprite and Squirt mixed together and it’s delicious. Food is not the only thing interesting about him, he also is very charming when it comes to friends, he met one of his friends with one of his favorite songs called “Coming at Your Love” by Redbone, it was in a movie, and after the movie he met a brand new friend cause of it. Ivan also would love to have you as his friend, since he finds his friends as his favorite people because they reflect him too. Ivan’s interests are so expandable to the point where he listens to almost every piece of music he can, so a good man to talk to about artists and songs for sure. He was in a band and loved to perform, and it became the most memorable thing for him since he loved having the crowd cheer him on. Ivan is also a fan of the classics, leading him to have his favorite video game Black Ops 1, since it was very fun hanging with family as well as playing the game. His dream hangout is to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 3 since his friend was away at the time, and he deeply wanted to see it. That’s what makes Ivan great: he is fully committed to watching a movie with someone, to the point where he doesn’t watch it himself unless his friend watches it with him.  Most movies were listed, since apparently Ivan can’t seem to watch a show, cause it goes on for way too long, I don’t blame him, I feel the same way. He states his favorite show is “The Mandalorian”, but hasn’t seen the newest season, but however, he does like “Phineas and Ferb” and “The Simpsons”. I would assume he likes shows that reset everything after the episodes, which is honestly incredible, because keeping up with a story is way harder than watching one episode for one story. Along with his favorite show, he finds Monster Inc. to be his favorite movie, because he found it so funny for him. Also, another funny and favorite movie is “HeavyWeight”, mostly because Netflix at the time didn't have many options, and it was the only Disney film on Netflix during the time, but at least he enjoyed it. Along with a movie, Ivan would love to have In the Flesh by Pink Floyd as a theme song, when he lived his life, because the guitar part was amazing, and he found out also through a movie.
