BOSTON SPORTS SCENE SET TO PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999
Published October 15, 1997
The '99 Ryder Cup at The Country Club in Brookline, MA, "will be the centerpiece" of an "impressive array of events" scheduled to take place in Boston that year, according to Will McDonough of the BOSTON GLOBE. The Country Club has "already sold" 57 corporate tents at $250,000 each for the week. That, along with TV revenues, ticket sales, and concessions and merchandising revenue means the event "will spin off" $90-100M. Pat Moscaritolo, President of Boston's Visitors and Convention Bureau said "something like" 6,000 of the city's hotel rooms "have already been booked for that week," half of the rooms in Boston. In '99, Boston will also host MLB's All-Star Game at Fenway Park, two rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament at the FleetCenter, and The Davis Cup, with Foxboro being one of the finalists to host the Women's World Cup (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/12).
