Small article about some recent changes at NFL stadiums.  I had to go through this process when I went to the Braves game a couple of weeks ago.  Not a bad process when enough people are working the gate.

Good article about a facility that decided to offer membership to local team.  The membership allowed the players to use the facilities amenities as well as bring in revenue for the facility.  Good idea for facilities that do not have steady teams.

Colby Morris's curator insight, September 9, 2013 3:53 PM

I learned from this site that the key to running a sports facility is to create relationships with local sports teams.  Depending on the sport that accommodates the facility, a facility manager should create benefits for local sports teams with their facility.  This site talks about how enabling perks to the local athletes will generate business and also keep the athletes coming back. Giving team member’s special benefits can motivate players to return and also can provide a revenue boost for the facility.  The benefits should last all year round, even during the slower seasons so players can get their off-season work in.  Another idea that is useful is to sponsor a sports team so other teams can see your facility and business.  Also, making a membership available online is a good marketing tool; it advertises the facilities relationship with that team and encourages other teams to develop a similar relationship with your business.I found it interesting that a facility could sponsor a team.  I wasn’t aware of this information but now that I know it, it will certainly help me with my future goals if I ever end up purchasing my own facility.  I found it educational to give teams perks because it’s an inside tip I feel since not all sports facilities I know of have this option.  Giving the teams special perks will keep the team coming back to your facility and could also help more teams practice and use your facility. I selected this article because I always thought it would be cool to run my own indoor baseball facility for players to use in season and during the off-season.  Then, with my facility, I would create my own AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) team and allow my team to practice in my facility.  I always dreamed of becoming a baseball coach and having a facility could bring two of my dreams to life.  My facility would have cages for players to pitch and hit in, and also a designated turf area for kids to play catch on or field grounders.  With the future approaching, it could maybe even be possible to raise the ceiling enough to hit pop ups to the outfielders.  This article really gave me a good insight on how a facility should be run.This information will help me in the sports management industry by having a sports facility for athletes to use to get better at baseball.  Not only to get better at baseball, but also a weight room could be installed so the players could become stronger as well.  There are many opportunities that are presented with owning a sports facility and all opportunities really interest me.

Jon Brewer's insight:

It's like an ad, but if it can do what it advertises, some facilities might benefit from something like this to help with ticket sales, memberships, season passes, etc.

Nine out of ten economists agree: Sports stadium subsidies are dumb. Posted on April 1, 2013 by Neil deMause. The Tampa Bay Times ran a story on Saturday headlined “How much do the Tampa Bay Rays boost the local economy?
Jon Brewer's insight:

Maybe nine out of ten economists agree, but one out of one here thinks along with the nine; subsidies only help owners and players, not the little people that have to pay for it.
