Abstract: This paper attempts to build upon previous research done by Coates & Humphreys by trying to find a relationship between real per capita personal income and the growth of real per capita personal income in 1984 dollars and, sports stadiums and/or franchises. Thirty-five major United States cities were analyzed over the period 1969 to 2000. This study attempts to capture the sports environment of a particular region better than the other existing literature. Like in other studies, this study found that there was a slight positive and in some cases a slight negative effect on real per capita personal income when sports-related variables were introduced.
