The Economic Impact of Sports Facilities | The Sport Digest

The Economic Impact of Sports Facilities | The Sport Digest | Sports Facility Management.4076045 | Scoop.it

In the past twenty years, there has been a dramatic increase in construction of new sports facilities. From professional leagues to colleges to city recreation facilities, it appears that the trend will continue. Much of the cost of new construction or renovation is subsidized. Those in support of subsidies believe that these new facilities will provide a substantial economic impact. They argue that the construction of these facilities will inject new spending into the local economy through fan support (ticket and other product revenues), job creation and tax revenues. Opponents, however, argue that a modest factory or a small research facility has as much or more economic impact. This paper will discuss the basic aspects of sports facility planning and the arguments for and against the construction of new sports facilities.

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 6:58 PM

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.

Although the psychic effect on the public would be great if the Dolphins moved, the public has spoken loudly with their displeasure of using their own money to fund a new stadium.

Blood spilled at games because of alcohol sales must stop

Blood spilled at games because of alcohol sales must stop | Sports Facility Management.4076045 | Scoop.it
We get the argument: Drinking beer at a game is a right. But beatings and shootings at pro venues have led to near-death experiences, so Gregg Doyel says let's end alcohol sales to potentially save lives.

Every time, I go to Lambeau field, at the end of each game it doesn't matter how well trained the fans are about disposing of garbage. There is always a huge mess to be taken care of. After reading this article it is admirable about what goes on behind the scenes at these sports stadiums.
