Crowd Management: Past and Contemporary Issues | The Sport Journal

Crowd Management: Past and Contemporary Issues | The Sport Journal | Darryl Coleman Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

"The definition of crowd management is every component of the game or event from the design of the stadium or arena to the game itself and the protection of the patrons from unforeseeable risk of harm from other individuals or the actual facility itself. The main criteria for deciding if crowd control procedures are sufficient and proper depend on the type of event, threats of aggression, existence and sufficiency of the emergency plan, expectation of crowd size and seating arrangement, known rivalries among teams and schools, and the use of a security workforce and ushers (Facilities and Event Management, n.d.). A competent crowd management plan has appropriate signage, an effectual communication structure, services for various disabled individuals, a properly trained and capable staff, and procedures and policies for all possible instances (Facilities and Event Management, n.d.)."
