Five of The World's Most Sustainable Sports StadiumsGreen Building ElementsSustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we've seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums.

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

1. What did you learn? I learned about how different companies recently have worked together to build stadiums with sustainable designs.

2. What information did you find interesting and educational? I think it is interesting how these companies have been designing these structures, and what they have been using to build them with.

3. Why did you select the article? I selected this article to learn about how companies are conserving important materials such as water.

4. How will this information help you in the sport management industry?

New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented

New Tampa Bay Rays stadium financing ideas to be presented | Sports Facility Management. 488143 | Scoop.it

TAMPA, Fla. -- Almost two years after the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce dove head-first into the Rays' Stadium Saga, the influential group will release its findings today on "best practices" to fund a new Rays stadium.

 

The Tampa chamber teamed up with the St. Pete chamber for the study, dubbing their group of prominent business leaders the "Baseball Stadium Financing Caucus."

 

The group, which has been supportive of a new stadium in Tampa Bay without delving into preferred locations, has been meeting behind closed doors for the better part of the last 18 months.

 

Monday's press conference is likely to address the elephant in the room: location of a new stadium may not matter as much as finding a way to finance it.

 

While the timing of the announcement could be better - a recent firesale of talent by the Miami Marlins has cast public subsidies of stadiums in a negative light - the group is hoping its ideas can break the stadium stalemate the Rays and the region have been locked in for the last few years.

Why is this not an issue on all levels? Public subsidies for sports stadiums is unsat!!

Scott Chadwick's comment, June 26, 11:44 PM
Although most people cant afford to build a billion dollar stadium. The money needs to come from somewhere I just don't agree with taking it from the tax payers. I know its difficult to get the money but I don't want to pay for it.
