SA Masters Games were $900,000 boon to Murray Bridge

The 2016 South Australian Masters Games brought almost 1200 visitors to Murray Bridge and an estimated $900,000 into the regional economy, according to a council report.

Each visitor stayed 3.6 nights in the region on average.

Councillor Tyson Matthews hoped the city’s new business alliance would encourage more than 18 per cent of businesses to offer discounts to athletes next time around.

“We can see from the average daily spend per participant, every time we lose a big of business … it costs a lot of money,” he said.
