Moncton stadium cost overruns due to poor management
CBC.ca
Poor management is to blame for $3.8 million in cost overruns on the Moncton stadium, according to an independent internal auditor's report.
Courtney Meyer's insight:

This is an excellent example of the uses of public subsidies in sports and how managing the financial support and rebuild is so important. The large amounts of money that are filter into these types of projects are not given easily in all situations and from this article it is interesting to see just how overboard funding can go. The main focus for this particular build needed more management and overall compliance.

NFL decade-low attendance inspires new TV blackout rules | newjerseynewsroom.com

NFL decade-low attendance inspires new TV blackout rules | newjerseynewsroom.com | Sports Facility Management.4369588 | Scoop.it

America’s most popular sport has experienced a noticeable setback in attendance.  Recent years have brought a steady decline in average NFL attendance.  In fact, 2011 marked the lowest average attendance the NFL has seen since 1998. Meanwhile, the NFL and its teams are weighing options to persuade fans to attend games.  There are many challenges to overcome.  Traffic and parking are issues at Met Life stadium and just about any stadium across the country.  The lines are long at rest rooms and at concession stands, which tend to serve overpriced, fat-laden foods.  "TV time outs" seem longer in person.

Courtney Meyer's insight:

I felt this was an important read because it shows how many sports have dedicated and loyal followings of fans and that as a sports facility manager dealing with issues of boycott or riots near the facility for imposed rules can happen and how to avoid major conflict.

Remember those late afternoon games in Texas Stadium, when Madden and Summerall were calling the game, Danny White was blowing it and the artificial turf was stained with water marks around the 20-yard line?

Courtney Meyer's insight:

So far in class we have reviewed that there are several reasons to build an arena or stadium. “If you build it, they will come” Field of Dreams… Anyways, this is a fun read about a sports fan’s interests on how stadiums and arenas make impressions all the way to the viewer in their own home. It uses the idea of psychic income in a way that engages and encourages an experience that cannot be given a price.

What benefits are associated with living near a sports stadium?

andrew schwartz's curator insight, October 6, 2014 4:12 PM

This article is about deciding where a good place to build a stadium would be.  The conversation is around whether businesses will crop up, and whether building a stadium will bring money to an area.  In the opinion of this author, stadiums and arenas don’t bring business to areas where they are built, and can be bad neighbors bringing traffic, and noise.
