Jets Camp brings $3.7M to region

Jets Camp brings $3.7M to region

Nearly 21,000 visitors from across the country and around the globe came to Cortland for the 2013 New York Jets training camp this summer.

They pumped nearly $3.7 million into the Central New York economy according to the economic impact analysis made by three SUNY Cortland professors.

Bob Haight, executive director of the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce, says the new NFL collective bargaining agreement contributed to the nearly $1.8 million less of an impact compared to 2012, which put a limit on practices open to the public.

Haight says another large contributing factor was the lack of fan favorite quarterback Tim Tebow, who he says brought in more than just football fans to the region.

“When Tim was here that brought more than just the normal football fans to town,” Haight said.
