This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.

Sun Life Stadium deal: County would take ownership, lose tax revenue, pay team to operate venue

Sun Life Stadium deal: County would take ownership, lose tax revenue, pay team to operate venue | Sports Facility Mangement | Scoop.it

Via Miami Herald:

 

Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee emphasized, are the only local professional sports team that pays property taxes, which fund public services.

 

What he didn’t say: a potential deal could give ownership of the stadium, which sits on county land, to Miami-Dade, similar to the arrangement between the county-owned AmericanAirlines Arena and the Miami Heat.

 

In that case, the county would provide an operating subsidy to the team, which would no longer have to pay taxes...

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.

Risk Management is something that all sport owners face everytime they are hosting an event. How people come prepare for that is key for the saftey of the fans, players and employees. I strongly agree that sport owners should take risk management course or work shops to be on top of their game so that they dont have an incident at their place and don't risk getting hit with a lawsuit because someone didn't put up a wet floor sign and a person ended up slipping and breaking something. This article will show you the best risk management work shop that anybody can and should go to if they are in the sport management business.

Mandy Santiago's curator insight, January 26, 2014 6:02 PM

Fantastic idea for stadiums to start using locally grown food in their concessions. This keeps the cost of food down with less shipping of food and is part of going green for any stadium. A  plus is helping the local economy and could be a new way to change the way people look at concession food. 

D'aundra's curator insight, June 26, 2016 6:01 PM

Stadium food has gotten a major upgrade, no longer is it just a hotdog.

Scott Chadwick's comment, June 26, 2016 11:40 PM
Its nice to see such a large organization like the Dever Broncos give back to the local community even if its just a small donation. Its also nice to accommodate all those who attend.

FAU to receive $12 million over 6 years to name football stadium after private prison company

FAU to receive $12 million over 6 years to name football stadium after private prison company | Sports Facility Mangement | Scoop.it

UPDATE: FAU will receive $6 million over 12 years from The GEO Group for naming rights to the stadium. The facility will be re-named the GEO Group Stadium.

 

FAU was able to tap into one of its alumni and a former chairman of its board of trustees to end the nearly two-year attempt to secure naming rights for the new on-campus football stadium.

 

The group, which is headquartered in Boca Raton, operates a range of correctional and detention facilities, including maximum, medium and minimal security prisons, including the South Bay Correctional Facility. It is a provider of governmental services specializing in the management of correctional, detention and mental health residential treatment centers in North American, South Africa and the United Kingdom...
