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.

Security of the sports facility is a top concern as a facility manager.  From large scale stadiums to local town recreation centers ensuring the safety of the spectators to the employees it is paramount that they are safe.  Giving the customers the feeling they are safe is also very important to having them come back.  In todays society terrorism is a threat around the world.  Large crowds are a prime target for terrorists and vigilant good security measures must be in place at all times.  Even on a smaller scale large crowds bring in petty thief's such as pick pockets or people selling illegal goods.  Even giving people the feeling that their vehicles are protected from theft or being broke into can help ease the worries of the fans and employees.  S.A.F.E. is one example of a security service that can aid in increasing security measures.  There are many security agencies out there that can provide the same services to meet specific needs of a particular facility.  This is an important part of managing a facility so don't underplay or under estimate the critical need for good security.

This isn't a true article but it does show you what they do provide in security and what they do to help events run properly.  It also gives you the chance to apply for jobs and internships that could help kick start a career in security

This article mentions how a "scheme" to fund the Vikings' stadium fell through and now the Minnesota taxpayers will have to "bail out" the stadium. It is interesting because the scheme that fell through is one that was not mentioned in our textbook.

I selected this article strictly because this would be a great experience for those of us who are looking to make this a career. Even though I desire to be an Athletic Director and currently work security, it is of great benefit to have knowledge of the inner workings of sports stadiums, arenas and complexes.

I wish I had found this article earlier. It touches on some key points on why public subsidies are not beneficial to the community. Also, it mentions how some companies do not take all factors into consideration when they assess subsidy effects on a community.

Sustainability is all the rage when it comes to building these new sport arenas/facilities. There has been more focus associated with ADA regulations and eco conscious building materials.
