Keenan Copp's insight:

As talked about in this article websites like StubHub have not only created new avenue for fans to pucharse tickets for events but also in most cases fans are selling season tickets for more then they paid for them.This is generating new revenue off of ticket sales it will be interesting to see if any issues ever arise between the statium and fans that are making money off of inflated resale ticket prices.

Being a big sports fan I have noticed the diffence in prices from buying from an actual vendor or a person. 9 times out of 10, the ticket prices are inflated when buying from someone who is selling their tickets. As mentioned in this article, individuals are making money off of the tickets as thethere selling them for more than they are worth.

Campus Safety Magazine

Keenan Copp's insight:

I scooped this article because it covers a big issue when it comes to crowd management at sporting events and that is the elimination of alcohol. Alcohol no doubt has a major effect on the actions of fans and if not regulated this can be a major contributing factor to an unruly crowd.

Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events

Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it
Security officers are increasingly using stun guns to maintain order at sporting events, but are they taking crowd control too far?
Keenan Copp's insight:

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.

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.

TRAVIS PHEANIS's curator insight, October 21, 2015 6:16 PM

Professional teams should be the gold standard on how to run concessions. Learning from their success and failures makes the smaller market facilities even better.

Rhett Moroses's curator insight, September 24, 2013 10:22 AM

Concessions are a major aspect of sports facility management. They generate the most business for the facilities. But the interesting fact is that today concession contracts are more complex and advanced. They have more flexibility and capitalize on consumers' loyalty. One of the things that educated me was how many aspects can go into a concession deal. There are deals for vending, for suites, for clubs, for resturants and much more. This article caught my eye because concessions seem to be basic business for sports facilities. But with these examples, we can see how advanced the sports facility management industry is when it comes to concession agreements.
