This is a pretty cool article. It focuses more on the appeal that the human mind has on the aesthetic points of the sports industry. The author does a nice job finding interesting facts and beautiful pictures to narrate the article. This article is fun and allows for the idea of sports facility management to really hit some brownie points with the amazing facts and the interaction of conversation the article inspires from various people on the comments is a great read. Enjoy!

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.

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.

I wish I had found this article earlier. It touches on some key points on why public subsidies are not beneficial to the community. Also, it mentions how some companies do not take all factors into consideration when they assess subsidy effects on a community.

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.
