I guess they make enough money in Japan to keep the tournament afloat, because I'm not sure how they can possibly be making any money off of the Americas. The U.S. doesn't care, and Central America is poor.
Canada, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and even the USA's slight interest insures this tournament makes a profit that saw distributions in the millions to the teams who played. What else you really going to watch the first half of March that beats this?
