UFC boosts Victoria’s economy

31 Mar 2016

Last year’s UFC event at Etihad Stadium boosted Victoria’s economy by $102 million, the UFC said last month.

According to an independent study commissioned by the UFC, the November 15 event not only provided a major economic boost to the state but also created 894 jobs and paid about $40.8 million in wages.

The event, which saw favourite Ronda Rousey defeated by Holly Holm in the headline fight, attracted an audience of 56,214, which was a new UFC live attendance record.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the ticket sales were from Victoria (60.84 per cent), followed by New South Wales (17 per cent), Queensland (8.1 per cent) and Western Australia (5.63 per cent). Less than 3 per cent of sales were from overseas.
