Yes, tickets to sporting events are still sold at face value through stadium and arena box offices. But who does that anymore? The concept of "dynamic pricing" for sporting event and concert tickets has been discussed for years.

Despite what many people believe, professional sports venues typically do not spur large-scale economic activity.

"The typical economic impact study gathers data on all aspects of spending related to a stadium, including the money spent to build it and the money spent by fans in connection with the stadium (including on tickets, at restaurants, and at hotels). The impact of this spending ripples outward into other areas of the economy through a multiplier. By linking spending to employment, the study then calculates how many jobs a stadium has created. It does not perform a cost-benefit analysis, which would address the opportunity costs of raising taxes to pay for a stadium and consider alternative uses of those funds."

The Superdome Scores a Touchdown for Energy Efficiency | The Energy Collective | Sports Facility Management.4048732 | Scoop.it

Get those chicken wings ready!  Super Bowl XLVII is coming up faster than a knife fight in a phone booth.  This year, the Baltimore Ravens will take on the San Francisco 49ers at the newly renovated Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The lucky fans attending the game are in for a treat.  With $336 million worth of renovations, the Superdome is more modern, luxurious, and energy efficient than ever.

 

This massive update is one of the biggest stadium reconstruction projects ever attempted in the U.S.  Expanding the plaza concourse, adding concession stands and restrooms, making space for 3,100 new seats, upgrading the locker room and press box, and constructing two premium bunker club lounges were all part of this undertaking.  As if this wasn’t enough, new construction has turned the Superdome into an energy efficient playground.

 

Consuming approximately 4,600 MW of electricity, the Superdome and its supporting facilities are going to great lengths to be resourceful with the energy it requires.

New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium

New rules: Ejected NFL fans this season will have to pay to take 4-hour online course to return to stadium | Sports Facility Management.4048732 | Scoop.it

Via ESPN:

 

The NFL is getting more serious about conduct in the stands.

 

This year, its teams are requiring any fan who gets ejected from a stadium to take a four-hour online course before they are permitted to come back into the facility again.

 

The course, designed by psychotherapist Dr. Ari Novick in tandem with the MetLife Stadium security director Daniel DeLorenzi, focuses on alcohol abuse, anger management and crude behavior. A handful of teams have used the course over the past couple seasons, but this summer, as part of a review of their best practices, every team decided to enforce the course on offending fans this season.

 

Novick said when fans get ejected from a game this year, they will be sent a letter that encourages them to apologize to the team and complete the course. If they fail to meet the requirement, and they are caught on stadium property, they are told they could be arrested for trespassing.

 

Not only do fans have to take the course if they want to come back to the stadium, they have to pay for it, too. Costs vary by team. The Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons charge the least at $50, while the New England Patriots charge a league-high $100. When a fan completes the course, Novick's company forwards that information to the club.

 

Skeptics might wonder how teams are going to keep track of ejected fans from week to week. Ray DiNunzio, the NFL's director of strategic security, told ESPN the monitoring will vary by team but could at some point involve facial recognition technology.

 

Approximately 7,000 people were ejected from NFL stadiums last season. The number varied by team but some teams are known to be more strict in certain areas than others. The Oakland Raiders, for example, have a zero-tolerance policy for smoking. DiNunzio said the Raiders could eject up to 300 fans a game for lighting up...
