When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.

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 Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date.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

An interesting take on how to create revenue in your sporting facility.

Daniel Toth's curator insight, September 26, 2013 4:01 PM

1. I learned that there are multiple ways that a manager of a sport facility can increase revenue during birthday parties for younger children. Some of these include providing a gift with the cost of the party. An example of a good gift was a t-shirt or other apparel that had the facilities name on it. Not only does it please the customer, it also serves as an advertising tool, becuase the child will wear it and broadcast the facility and the fact it was "free" with the party, making other kids beg their parents to let them have a birthday party there. Also, by trying to have your employees close a deal with other parents picking up the kids. In order to make them try and book future parties, offereing an incentive is a good way to try to make the employees book parties. 

2. Information I found interesting and educational were that birthday parties act as a block in "slow periods" of business. They allow slow times of business to gain revenue. Also, by teaming up with the local pizza store is useful, becuase you might get a dscounted price on pizza in exchange for advertising their own business. 

3. I selected this article becuase I am interested in pursuing a career in running my own sport facility. I would love to provide children and adults opprotunities to better their health and to let them have fun playing sports. I think by having my own facility I could increase certain sports in areas that dont have access to certain sports. 

4. This will help me in the sport management business by giving me a step ahead of the comptetion with gaining a certain demographic of customers, and also by allowing me to make more money if I were to ever encounter a financial situation.

The Economic Impact of Sports Facilities | The Sport Digest

The Economic Impact of Sports Facilities | The Sport Digest | Sports Facility Management:4520141 | Scoop.it

In the past twenty years, there has been a dramatic increase in construction of new sports facilities. From professional leagues to colleges to city recreation facilities, it appears that the trend will continue. Much of the cost of new construction or renovation is subsidized. Those in support of subsidies believe that these new facilities will provide a substantial economic impact. They argue that the construction of these facilities will inject new spending into the local economy through fan support (ticket and other product revenues), job creation and tax revenues. Opponents, however, argue that a modest factory or a small research facility has as much or more economic impact. This paper will discuss the basic aspects of sports facility planning and the arguments for and against the construction of new sports facilities.

Being disabled should not mean that a fan is unable to attend a sporting event without a great experience.  It is great a team is making upgrades to become more modern and while the changes are good for some, there are a small few who feel overlooked.  No stadium should subject their disabled fans to a miserable game experience.  If anything, a stadium needs to be able to accomodate all of their fans.

Monique Tester's curator insight, April 26, 2014 1:09 PM

267 million euro put to waste. The fans will not return including disabled fans who were unable to see, ridiculous!
