Europe takes its soccer very serious, especially the fans. Although the safety officer wasn't implying a strict policy, doing so would likely affect attendance throughout the season.
Thomas Connors's comment, September 26, 2013 8:08 PM
i learned that crowd attendance is extremely key in any situation. People love a good crowd, even if the team is struggling. People were complaining about the crowd being to loud and obnoxious. Knowing that if she were to actually do something about it the fans would decrease and finally totally kill the program even more. So, Sue Watson (safety officer) replied to this by sending out a letter saying "Sit down, Shut up" Such a bold move by the officer, but it enlightened the fans and could possibly increase the fans instead of just the opposite. I selected this article because i thought it was extremely interesting on to how they responded to the outrageous complaints about a good crowd. This will help me because it shows that not every complaint should be taken seriously, because that would make the majority of the fans un happy and could cause a huge decrease in fans.

Great article!!1

Scott Chadwick's comment, June 26, 11:42 PM
Crown management one of the most under appreciated jobs there is. Standing on your feet for the duration of an event. Plus those who attend don't understand you are only enforcing rules governed by the stadium.

Crowd control is a huge part of sports facility management. The Minnesota Twins decided to update their security with state of the art cameras after the Los Angeles Dodgers dilemma. it's interesting that this huge investment actually helped them financially in the long run. This article expresses how important facility management is to the sport business. Not only does this teach future sport managers how to manage an aspect such as crowd control, but also improve communication and management skills to find a financial benefit from this in the long run.
