Greater Cleveland Sports Commission Hosting 10 Major Sporting Events in 2018
Sports are more than fun to play and to watch. They're big business, too.
That's especially true for Northeast Ohio in 2018, as the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission is hosting 10 major sporting events this year.
The estimated impact - $30 million.
The first of those begins next weekend, when the Junior Volleyball Association's Rock and Rumble returns to the Huntington Convention Center.
The two day tournament brings 4000 athletes, coaches and their families to Cleveland from across the country, along with a projected $3 million in revenue. And that's just the beginning.
