You have no idea. It’s the government’s (local or state, depending on the specific situation) way to look multi-cultural and international.

In Utah, 75% of people in Salt Lake County did NOT want public funds used to build a soccer stadium. The governor and state legislature didn’t appreciate that, since they’d pretty much promised Real SL that they’d do it. So, they decided they knew better than we did, and redirected all Salt Lake County’s hotel and tourism revenue into a fund for the stadium. Then they tried to convince us that we weren’t paying for it.

It’s like Car Rental Taxes...
The excuse it that “people who don’t live here” pay those taxes, but in reality, 60% of all car rentals are LOCAL, in Non-Florida cities...

Our car rental and hotel costs have gone to the other stadiums that they now admit WE paid for.
