Total Seating Capacity

1.162 million seats    

If one assumes that each seat generates an average of $200 per year, ISC takes in $232 million per year just in permanent seating.  Add to that infield parking/camping, concessions, merchandising, etc and the number is probably close to $1/2 billion per year.
