Caitlin Clark brought millions to Iowa's economy

As women’s college basketball’s all-time leading scorer, Caitlin Clark’s star power is known in Iowa for breaking attendance and viewership records. Attendance levels for all Hawkeye women’s basketball games were nearly the times higher than before she joined the squad, growing from about 125,000 to 350,000 attendees.

Hawkeyes games in Iowa have driven millions in local spending each night, and a single Hawkeyes game outside the state at Beaver Stadium in Pennsylvania drove $9.5 million dollars in spending for accommodations, restaurants, and transportation, proving the Caitlin Clark effect transcends location.

Master predictability across all of your business locations

Caitlin Clark basketball games have a massive impact, but so does the combined impact of other sports games and smaller events. These events may not always make headlines, but their collective impact should not be underestimated.
