Wildcats bring big business to city

May 15, 2006

Albany -- Following the Wildcat's first win of the season, city leaders hope they continue. The more fans that fill the Civic Center seats, the more it helps the local economy.

The Chamber of Commerce says they are pleased with the economic impact the arena football games bring to area.

"We've had a lot of daytrippers as a result of having the Wildcats here, and some of the teams from out of town have also brought some people from out of town and stay in our hotels, so they've been a wonderful asset to the community," said Sara Underdown.

The chamber encourages people to come out to the games. Next home game is June 3rd against the Macon Knights.
