Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Bison playoff season brings big bucks for business in the F-M area.

There's no way of predicting exactly how much, but the Chamber of commerce says hundreds of thousands of dollars flow into local businesses during championship season games.

Hotels, restaurants, and retailers are packed full, both from fans and teams traveling to play here, as well as locals out to support the Bison. Each game that brings the team closer to Frisco, means more money for the city.

Craig Whitney, FM Chamber of Commerce President, says, "having the Bison in the position that they're in and the season they've had this year and last year brings so much excitement to the community, does so much for the community in terms of putting it on the map in so many different ways."

Whitney says ESPN's coverage will also help bringing Fargo's name to a national audience.
