Should this be nationwide? Another way to make your patrons feel safe during ritual tailgating parties.

This is something that should be applied at all stadiums.

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 Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date.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.

Watford CEO: 'Our whole business strategy is to be self-sufficient' | Sports Facility Management 4086183 | Scoop.it
“Our whole business strategy is to be self-sufficient, minimise losses and eventually to break even.” It’s not a phrase you would expect to hear from many Championship chief executives as they chase the multi-million pound riches of Premier League football. But that is the Pozzo way.

Scott J. Fields's curator insight, June 27, 2013 8:21 PM

The video article went over the three year process of the renovation and expansion of the largest stadium in North America, University of Michigan's Big House. Built in 1927, the Big House needed 21st century improvements to put up with the demands of a stadium that houses more than 110,000 fans on Saturday's. The construction crew went to great links to insure the safety of the spectators since they continued construction throughout the college football season for three years, each and every Thursday throughout the football season the crew would close down the site and clear everything for the game on Saturday. Maybe the article is not about "crowd management" exactly, but it does take into consideration the  management of the crowd's safety.
