Utah Governor Gary Herbert has tipped Real Salt Lakeâ€™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.
â€œPeople 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."
