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.

Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events

Keenan Copp's curator insight, September 20, 2013 11:07 AM

This article could tie into both facility crowd control and security, it covers some situations were a taser was used on fans at past sporting events. There seems to be a bit of mixed feelings on the necessity of a stun gun for event security, and it also covers a case in which a fan suied over the use of the stun gun. Due to the fan suing, the idea of stun guns in a facilit could also be something that would come up when discussing risk management.

Joe Bisson's curator insight, September 21, 2013 11:43 AM

This article shows a way that can control crowds and possibly deter future disruptions 

Mike Horne's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:28 PM

I added this one simply because I enjoy tasers and seeing people being tased.  It's a fairly safe way to control someone and de-escalate a bad situation without hurting the people around them.  As with anything, there is a liability issue that the facility staff will have to deal with if used incorrectly.

Facility management can be one of the most difficult aspects of a managers job. Having an efficient and "green" stadium will definitely help, and is the wave of the future.
