The Super Bowl is huge for a city's economy. Last year the Super Bowl brought millions upon millions of Dollars to Dallas. It is a reason the new stadium was made, to bring money to the city through events like the Super Bowl.

I would rather all that money stay in the US...our cities need help like that
The public funding that it takes to build the new stadiums you need to get the Super Bowl and all the other costs with putting on the event mitigate the profits. It's 99% a prestige "we're a big time city" thing, not economic.
