On Feb. 3, the New England Patriots faced off against the Los Angeles Rams in a very leisurely moving and low scoring Super Bowl located in Atlanta. Many fans were irritated due to the game’s mundane nature—not to mention the thousands of dollars spent per person—although, towards the end, the energy heightened after Patriots running back Sony Michel scored the first touchdown in the fourth quarter to ultimately close the deal and hand the Patriots their sixth Super Bowl win.

With every substantial event that invites thousands of people to a singular venue, it benefits the hosting city.

Additionally, other benefits are the lodging and food expenses. The financial investments and loss coming from fans and viewers translates to a major gain for Atlanta.
