Salt Lake City and Utah citizens have long been baseball fans. Home to three minor league teams, Utah shows great promise for baseball. As Utah has grown and expanded its economy it has become one of the largest media markets in the United States. As of 2019, Utah's DMA ranks #30 according to Nielsen. This new position puts the Salt Lake City media area ahead of Milwaukee, Cincinnati, & Kansas City. All of which house MLB franchises.

Not only is the media market there, but fans of other professional sports in Utah attend games. The Utah Jazz has not had less than 90% attendance in any of the previous ten seasons. Salt Lake's men's soccer team, Real Salt Lake is in the top tier of attendance for MLS, tied for first in attendance rank.

Lastly, there is about to be a large portion of prime land opened up in the Salt Lake valley where the current Prison is. The new Prison is slated to be completed in 2022.
