Jon Brewer's curator insight, August 21, 2013 6:37 PM

Good article about a facility that decided to offer membership to local team.  The membership allowed the players to use the facilities amenities as well as bring in revenue for the facility.  Good idea for facilities that do not have steady teams.

Colby Morris's curator insight, September 9, 2013 3:53 PM

I learned from this site that the key to running a sports facility is to create relationships with local sports teams.  Depending on the sport that accommodates the facility, a facility manager should create benefits for local sports teams with their facility.  This site talks about how enabling perks to the local athletes will generate business and also keep the athletes coming back. Giving team member’s special benefits can motivate players to return and also can provide a revenue boost for the facility.  The benefits should last all year round, even during the slower seasons so players can get their off-season work in.  Another idea that is useful is to sponsor a sports team so other teams can see your facility and business.  Also, making a membership available online is a good marketing tool; it advertises the facilities relationship with that team and encourages other teams to develop a similar relationship with your business.I found it interesting that a facility could sponsor a team.  I wasn’t aware of this information but now that I know it, it will certainly help me with my future goals if I ever end up purchasing my own facility.  I found it educational to give teams perks because it’s an inside tip I feel since not all sports facilities I know of have this option.  Giving the teams special perks will keep the team coming back to your facility and could also help more teams practice and use your facility. I selected this article because I always thought it would be cool to run my own indoor baseball facility for players to use in season and during the off-season.  Then, with my facility, I would create my own AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) team and allow my team to practice in my facility.  I always dreamed of becoming a baseball coach and having a facility could bring two of my dreams to life.  My facility would have cages for players to pitch and hit in, and also a designated turf area for kids to play catch on or field grounders.  With the future approaching, it could maybe even be possible to raise the ceiling enough to hit pop ups to the outfielders.  This article really gave me a good insight on how a facility should be run.This information will help me in the sports management industry by having a sports facility for athletes to use to get better at baseball.  Not only to get better at baseball, but also a weight room could be installed so the players could become stronger as well.  There are many opportunities that are presented with owning a sports facility and all opportunities really interest me.

Europe takes its soccer very serious, especially the fans. Although the safety officer wasn't implying a strict policy, doing so would likely affect attendance throughout the season.
Thomas Connors's comment, September 26, 2013 8:08 PM
i learned that crowd attendance is extremely key in any situation. People love a good crowd, even if the team is struggling. People were complaining about the crowd being to loud and obnoxious. Knowing that if she were to actually do something about it the fans would decrease and finally totally kill the program even more. So, Sue Watson (safety officer) replied to this by sending out a letter saying "Sit down, Shut up" Such a bold move by the officer, but it enlightened the fans and could possibly increase the fans instead of just the opposite. I selected this article because i thought it was extremely interesting on to how they responded to the outrageous complaints about a good crowd. This will help me because it shows that not every complaint should be taken seriously, because that would make the majority of the fans un happy and could cause a huge decrease in fans.

Massive Green Building Projects Aim to Create a Sustainable 2014 World Cup

Massive Green Building Projects Aim to Create a Sustainable 2014 World Cup | Sports Facility Management 8675309 | Scoop.it

For the 2014 World Cup, Brazil will roll out impressive facilities that could score LEED certification and add to its rich modern architecture legacy.

Describing any massive construction project as “green” is a stretch, especially when it comes to sports facilities. But in football-mad Brazil, plans for a bevy of new and refurbished football stadia for the 2014 World Cup are well underway.

Brazil's projects could both score international green building certifications such as LEED while adding to the country’s rich modern architecture legacy. Much of the credit for Brazil’s greening of the World Cup goes to Vicente Mello and Ian McKee, two architects who drafted the CopaVerde plan, which advocates for the most responsible construction practices possible for the event’s venues...

What a building!  Everyone is getting on board with Green Buildings and LEED certifications.  Turner is also on the Green and LEED Certified train. It's the new IN thing. 

Kenneth Hadden Miller's curator insight, April 26, 2015 3:56 AM

An earlier scoop showed the issues that Rio was going to have with disabled patrons who attend the 2016 Olympic Games.  This is a bit more positive as it shows the green facilities that were created or rebuilt for the 2014 World Cup.  One of these even had its own solar power plant, which is extremely impressive!
