Considering the huge influx of excited sports fans, Vegas is set to have heavy pockets in the days to come. After all, with the two scheduled major events comes the question of elongated booms to the economy of Nevada. But when put against one another, which event will bring in more cash flow?

Well, a thorough analysis of both events’ past track records would reveal that the revenue generated by the Super Bowl is far greater than what has been generated by LIV Golf. One of the main reasons for that could be that LIV is still a golfing league that is in its elementary stage. The excitement among the fans is much higher for Super Bowl Sunday, and the fan-following of the Saudi-funded league is still somewhat divided. The previous year’s numbers also tell the same story.

I, Daiemah Malik, have loved writing for as long as I can remember. It started with practicing poetry in front of the mirror, eventually translating into my passion for writing at EssentiallySports.
