The Big Apple Bowl would bring 75,000 new visitors to the city annually while generating up to $8 million in fiscal impact, according to a press release. We are proud to announce that the Big Apple Bowl is the first annual event that the New York Sports and Convention Center has booked, said New York Jets President Jay Cross.
