Warriors add design veterans to arena development team - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sport management | Scoop.it
T he Golden State Warriors have added two experienced NBA facility developers to their San Francisco arena project team.
Jesse Maresca's insight:

1.) I learned that the Golden State Warriors have added two experienced NBA facility developers to their San Francisco arena project team. The arena is also going to be on a waterfront location which is expected to always draw great attendance and offer alot to the fans.

 

2.) I found it intersting that the two experienced NBA facility developers who are David Manica and David Carlock worked with the Houston Rockets NBA team with the development of the Toyota Center. This shows they both had great experience and will be a great asset to the San Francisco Arena Project. The two also worked on three arena developments in China as part of a joint venture between the NBA and AEG. 

 

3.) I selected this article because i really enjoying learning about new arenas and stadiums being built for the future. I think that new venues for sports teams will make the games more attractive to fans and also bring in more revenue and greater attendance at games.

 

4.) This information will help me because it shows that creating a new arena for a sports team creates alot of excitement in the sports world. It also shows that it is very important for an owner of a team to hire a very experienced and skilled staff to develop plans and construction for a new arena in the future. This is a great example of an owner hiring the right people for the project.

Cubs renew deals with Levy, Ovations - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

Cubs renew deals with Levy, Ovations - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sport management | Scoop.it
The Chicago Cubs have renewed deals with Levy Restaurants and Ovations Food Services for two high-profile food and retail contracts in Major League Baseball.
Jesse Maresca's insight:

1.) I learned that the Chicago Cubs have renewed deals with Levy Restaurants and Ovations Food Services. Levy Restaurants have a 28 year relationship with the Cubs that began back in 1985. Ovations signed an 8 year deal with the Cubs. These two contracts will remain valid through the 2021 season.


2.) I found it interesting that Wrigley Field’s current annual food and retail revenue at $35 million was down from a high of $45 million a few years ago, which is one of the highest revenues in the MLB. I also found it interesting the Levy Resturants are partners with the Brooklyn Nets and are in the Barclays Center which is very popular and good for their revenue.


3.) I selected this article because I find it very intersting when big time franchises partner with food corporations to increase revenue and they use them to bring in more fans once they know that the food quality is good, which is a major part in making their experience at the baseball games that much better.


4.) This information will help me in the sport management industry because it shows that if your professional sports organization partners with a high quality food corporation, ultimately people will have a better experience at the games and there will be an increase in revenue as long as the fans enjoy it.

New Orleans Arena gets long-awaited upgrades - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global | sport management | Scoop.it
A hard-hat tour of New Orleans Arena reveals a mangled mess of steel cropping up from the floor like the offspring of some metallic Medusa.
Jesse Maresca's insight:

1.) I learned that the New Orleans Pelicans are upgrading one of two premium lounges at event level and that are now under construction, and a portion of a two-year, publicly funded $50 million renovation to bring the 14-year-old arena up to speed with newer buildings. I also learned The arena’s 56 suites and the Hub Club are getting improvements done to them as well. The goal is to create a unique identity and experience for the fans when they come to the arena.


2.) I found it interesting that the Pelicans are a new franchise entering the NBA, but are starting off on the right foot by updating many features in the arena and getting up to date with newer arenas, so they can draw in a great amont of fans. I also found it interesting that the project’s centerpiece is an 18,000-square-foot expansion of the front lobby extending outside the facility to the arena’s property line.

 

3.) I selected this aritcle because i find it really fascinating that the Pelicans are a new NBA franchise just entering their first season in the league, and have a great amount of funds to renovate and improve their stadium. I am also intersted to see if these improvements will drastically increase its revenues and popularity.

 

4.) This information will help me because it shows that uprgrading an arena and technology can be very important to a sports franchise and will increase fan support and revenues at games and events.
