Laver Cup Chicago 2018 A Huge Success! By The Numbers

 

A total of 93,584 tennis fans turned out to watch the second edition of the Laver Cup, (a 3 day event) making it one of the largest single sporting events to be held at the United Center in Chicago.

 

Maybe even in the United States?

 

“The Laver Cup is a unique opportunity for Chicago to share our city with tennis greats and fans from across the country and around the world,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said.

 

“The tournament has not only had a direct economic benefit for Chicago, it has been another successful athletic and cultural event for the city.”

 

Laver Cup Managing Director Steve Zacks was also thrilled with the success of the event.

 

“We have been blown away by the standard of tennis, the passion of the players and the dedication of the fans over this Laver Cup weekend in Chicago,” Zacks said.

 

“This is the first time tennis at this level has been staged in this city for 27 years and the fans have absolutely loved it. More than 93,000 attended over the weekend, making the Laver Cup one of the largest single sporting events to be held at the famous United Center.

 

“I’d like to thank Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his team for their incredible support and the people of Chicago along with fans from across America and around the world, all who’ve contributed enormously to the great success of the Laver Cup this weekend.”
