Real Salt Lake title win could benefit Utah

Utah Governor Gary Herbert has tipped Real Salt Lake's MLS championship win as a potential boost for the struggling economy. Gov. Herbert predicts the triumph will bring millions to Utah because the state has received much more national recognition.

"People are discovering Utah, Real Salt Lake's soccer team and are celebrating this great victory," said Gov. Herbert.

"Just the Major League Soccer All-Star game that we had here in July, just in this area, one day, was worth about 3 to 4 million dollars in economic benefit to the state."
