Leisure and sports market size:
I need to know the aggregate size of the U.S. market for attendance at
spectator sports (football, baseball, hockey, etc).
I would love to see it broken down by:
1. how much on tickets
2. how much on merchandise at the games (jerseys, banners, hats, etc)
3. how much on food (beer, hot dogs, etc)
