There is nothing better than recognizing the men and women who work countless hours in order to provide the attending sports fan a memorable experience. This article also highlights the importance of an Enterprise asset management (EAM) & Computerized Maintenance Management Software. It also gives a great example on a stadiums recommendation to improve their maintenance issues. This article also has links to get great information on several different aspects of sports management that can be very useful for our final project.

Cam Farnham's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:33 AM

1. I learned that without a good EAM CMMS solution, maintenance can quickly skyrocket in price. Yes the job will get done, but the operation skyrockets in price. Also i learned that if you plan your maintenance through spreadsheets, you will forget something.  The article compares it to when someone tried to plan there days using sticky notes. You will loose them , and will always miss something.

 

2. I found it interesting that there were 7 specific objectives they described. I thought there could be an endless amount of objectives to make the maintenance  of sport better. Also i found it interesting that the article stated the community would be much happier if they did not have get a new stadium, because of costs and memories.

 

3. I selected this article because one of my first jobs might be working for a sports team in the facility field. I always thought driving a zamboni would be such a cool and fun job. Another reason i chose this is because my father has told me many cool stories about facility management. My father worked for the Brown University facility management staff when he was in college, until he made the football team.

 

4.This information about facility management will help me out because i know how to stay organized and how to be the most successful. I know not to use spreadsheets, or sticky notes to plan maintenance. Also i know specific objectives to get done to be the most successful and to make everyone happy.

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security.

Joel Roberts's curator insight, December 22, 2012 6:55 PM

Sept 11 has forever changed our security format in this country. Our sporting events are no different so although the search procedure is tedious it is needed to ensure safety at these events.

Tricia's curator insight, May 26, 2013 12:48 PM

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.

Acquisti & Sostenibilità not-for-profit's curator insight, March 23, 2013 2:38 PM

In June 2009 MetLife Stadium signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, with the intention of improving the facility’s environmental sustainability and becoming a steward of green operation. The EPA released its annual assessment of the stadium’s progress toward that goal this week, and the data showcases significant gains at the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets.

The analysis shows that MetLife Stadium has reduced its carbon footprint by the equivalent of over 234,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, saving the facility nearly $20 million in operating costs in just under four years of action. The reductions are equivalent to the annual emission of over 48,000 vehicles or the annual energy use in more than 12,000 homes.

These gains were largely the result of several initiatives put into place at MetLife Stadium. The most recognizable step was the installation of a solar-energy ring around the top of the stadium to mitigate the energy usage at the venue, which went online in August 2012. But the biggest gains came from an aggressive energy-conservation program at the stadium that reduced energy use by 20% from the opening baselines.

The EPA also noted the efforts by MetLife Stadium to expand green purchasing decisions, sustainable landscaping, increases in recycling and composting, and water conservation through low-flow installations and waterless urinals. As host of the 2014 Super Bowl, MetLife Stadium has quantitatively shown progress toward its stated mission to host the greenest championship game to date.

Monique Tester's curator insight, April 26, 2014 11:58 AM

Not only is the MetLife Stadium an ecofriendly stadium but is the only stadium out of all the NFL stadiums to receive no public funding including construction upgrades/improvements.

Terror attacks have been a concern since 9/11 and in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon, there are concerns about large scale sporting events being properly secured.  Other marathons and the winter and summer Olympics are all examples of major events that will require extensive security to ensure the safety of the athletes, their families and the fans.

Security is always an issue with sporting events, and thus it needs to be constantly improved to stay ahead of the game. People are always trying to find new ways to avoid security, so security needs to be constantly altered.
