Sports Facilities Jobs | Operations, Management, Stadium Security | Facility Management | Scoop.it
Get close to the action - work in or manage sports facilities. Learn about jobs at sports stadiums and arenas - from security jobs to operations positions.
Jason Cain's insight:

This article discusses all the jobs that are involved when having a large arena. This would also be helpful when the subsidy issue is argued against. An arena does create jobs for the community. One may be surprised just how many.

It takes a team of dedicated managers and staff to ensure these sporting events go as planned. Sports management is very necessary!

Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events

Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events | Facility Management | Scoop.it
Security officers are increasingly using stun guns to maintain order at sporting events, but are they taking crowd control too far?

Via Amanda Mueller, TIFFANY NICOLE WHITE
Jason Cain's insight:

This is a popular article on how far security officers have taken the issue of security at a major event. Is this taking it too far. I believe so. There are other ways to maintain a crowd.

I feel that it is at a good pace right now, because in example, if someone from the croud breaks out in the middle of a football game the player could hospitalize a croud member without meaning to. When you have an athlete of that caliaber "in the zone" you dont want to get in his/her way because they will do damage to you just by thinking you are another player.

Public funding of sports arenas and stadiums brings out venom typically reserved for the most heated on-court rivalries.

Via Sean Aikman
Jason Cain's insight:

The article talks about the salary of players and elected officials that support the players. Also it mentions that big cities do benefit from having big time teams in their area. Politics are also mentioned in this article. When it comes to subsidies you will always see a politician in the background.

Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats?

Should Building Codes be Changed to Keep Fans from Falling Out of Their Seats? | Facility Management | Scoop.it
Should building codes be changed to keep fans from falling out of upper-level stadium sections?

Via Adam White, Scott J. Fields
Jason Cain's insight:

It is hard to manage a crowd at a ball game with a vast amount of people. Building codes need to be adjusted to help with the management. We are hearing of people more often now falling from their seats at a ballgame and dying. Organizations need to do all they can to help prevent this from happening.

This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

NFL, MLB stadium security evolves 10 years after Sept. 11, 2001 - More Sports - SI.com | Facility Management | Scoop.it

As the St. Louis Cardinals designed new Busch Stadium early in the 2000s, the September 11 attacks remained in their minds.

Jason Cain's insight:

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.

Sept 11 has forever changed our security format in this country. Our sporting events are no different so although the search procedure is tedious it is needed to ensure safety at these events.

Tricia's curator insight, May 26, 2013 12:48 PM

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security.

Getting Through The Gate: Understanding Security Measures At Sporting Events | Facility Management | Scoop.it
Security at sporting events has become a big deal.

Via Thomas Faltin
Jason Cain's insight:

Security is a major issue at sporting events. Owners of arenas must ensure the safety of the fans. Therefore many items are forbidden to bring into the stadium. This is for the safety of people in attendance at these events.
