Reports indicate that Boulder’s economic boost was attributed to six home college football games at Folsom Field, with an estimated economic impact of $72.1 million. This is because of the increased spending by local businesses and visitors during the games. Charlene Hoffman, CEO of Visit Boulder, praised Coach Prime’s transformative influence and noted how it brought people from diverse backgrounds together and united the community in celebration.

Sanders’ arrival generated unprecedented hype and resulted in record-breaking merchandise and ticket sales, despite a previous poor season. Every game at Folsom Field in 2023 had an average attendance of over 53,000 fans and contributed significantly to the total economic impact. The estimated figures range from $16.7 million to $21.6 million per game, derived using an industry tool by Tourism Economics and utilized by more than 350 cities. Sanders’ impact extended beyond the field with national television coverage for the annual spring game and high-profile pregame shows like College GameDay and ‘FOX Big Noon Kickoff’.
