This is a popular article on how far security officers have taken the issue of security at a major event. Is this taking it too far. I believe so. There are other ways to maintain a crowd.

This video shows a behind the scenes look at event safety and crowd management. One thing I found very smart that they do is have all the coordinators next to each other so than can communicate and fix problems easier and quicker.

Concessions are one of the most important aspects of a sports venue. If a sports team has poor food quality it will definitely have an adverse effect on the attendance.

"Many benefits— including capital resources and purchasing power, management expertise and menu flexibility — that can be gained by outsourcing concessions operations to regional or national providers...Athletic departments that outsource concessions enjoy peace of mind from a management standpoint...No matter how concessions contracts are structured, the only way they succeed is if they are perceived to be mutually beneficial for all parties involved."

A Closer Look at Stadium Subsidies — The American Magazine

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."

"Lou Marciani says, it's important to continuously nurture and enforce good fan behavior, and that  it is important to plan ahead for emotionally-charged games by taking a serious look at emergency plans and alerting partners such as local and state police that they may be needed."

Why Stadium Subsidies Always Win: Q&A with J.C. Bradbury

"One of the things we often find about these stadiums," explains Kennesaw State University economist J.C. Bradbury, is that "[politicians and supporters] always underestimate the costs and overestimate the benefits."

Indeed, as Bradbury points out, every independent analysis of subsidies for sports teams and stadiums shows that they suck money out of the local economy. Yet time and again, politicians and team owners succeed in handing the taxpayer a bill. Why is that? 

"People see money going into stadiums, people spending their dollars at the stadiums, going to the games," says Bradbury, who writes widely on the economics of sports. "Really, this is just a transfer from locals. Instead of spending their money on movies or going out to eat, they're going to a sports game, and so it looks like it's generating a lot of money."

Reason's Nick Gillespie sat down with Bradbury at Freedom Fest to talk about the city of Atlanta's $1 billion promise to build a new stadium for the NFL's Falcons.

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 6:58 PM

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

bryant tucker's curator insight, July 23, 2016 5:33 PM

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.
