Dyer: “I think just like many other events, like Copa [the Copa America Centenario soccer tournament], like the Rolling Stones, we’re attracting all types of events to the Citrus Bowl that we would not have been able to do but for the upgrade with the renovation to the Citrus Bowl, no question about it.”
