Locals' view

The Honolulu Advertiser with a story on the Pan-Pacific Championship. One of the main questions surrounding this tournament is the focus here, but whether the tournament is successful is much more important for the locals. A successful tournament to them would mean large crowds and true interest from abroad, which would in turn mean an economic boost.

No word on ticket sales, though. If ticket sales are slow and the stadium is mostly empty, then this might not be worth the hassle for next year. But if crowds are large and the interest extends beyond just one particular Galaxy player, it will be a good thing for the local economy.
