Football Weekend Means Millions For Indy

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of visitors are expected to pump millions of dollars into the economy during this weekend's Circle City Classic in Indianapolis. Visit Indy estimates the economic impact of the 30th annual event will be around $10 million. The highlight of the weekend is Saturday night's matchup between Alcorn State University and Grambling State University at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Event organizers say proceeds from ticket sales fund Indiana Black Expo Inc. and Circle City Classic scholarships. The event has raised more than $3 million for those efforts since 1984.
