Two UEFA Euro 2004 games The municipality of Leiria has tried to sell the stadium without success
For the season 2011/12 the anchor tenant moved to another stadium
The municipality of Leiria pays $6.650 per day in maintenance costs Why are stadiums built?
For the public good... ie. to increase sports
participation, civic pride, philanthropy, social welfare,
tourism, mega-events (the Olympics or World Cup etc)
Or for sustainable business? A measure of stadium success
Is your venue...? SAFE (No compromise)
SUSTAINABLE (profitable, or at least ‘beneficial’ to the community/owner)
SELLOUT (Will your guests come back again!? Acompelling experience) Development MISTAKES being repeated -
ignore the 4 key Success Factors
1. CONTENT is KING (anchor tenant)
2. Strategic Plan... non-existent
3. Partnerships... you cannot do it alone
4. Expertise (the right people) Sources
Play The Game Conference 2011
IDAN - Danish Institute of Sports Science
Ian Nuttall, TheStadiumBusiness.com Who profits?
The construction business always wins (at low risk)
The rights holder behind the mega event (IOC, FIFA etc.) always wins
The future operator? (if there is no future operator…)
The future anchor tenants? (if there are no tenants in place yet…)
The local community? (what are the real needs of local sports people?)
(Almost entirely) the tax payers (on promised future developments)
No major involvement from private investors? (means no future income streams…) £500m+ construction
Designed to be reduced from 80,000 to 25,000
BUT nobody wants the running track... Olympic Stadium, London “The venues are designed so that
they won’t be white elephants” Seb Coe The Stadium Legacy? Who should be the anchor tenant?
Public or privat owned?
2017 World Championships in Athletics? Will the Olympic Stadium be a white elephant?
Research the case and make a Prezi presentation dfdf
