This book is for professional practitioners and students of safety and security at public assembly facilities. It addresses crowd behaviour and crowd-control issues pertinent to events at stadiums, arenas, ballparks, cricket grounds, racecourses, motorsport circuits, and multi-event sites such as the Olympic Games. It is a collection of articles by Steve Frosdick and commentaries by Jim Chalmers. The co-authors conduct a refreshing debate around subjects such as conflict management, racism, player behaviour, the use of CCTV and smartcards, risk assessment, spectator violence, sale of alcohol, segregation, the right security balance post 9/11, protecting the field of play, stewarding, policing, and the training of safety professionals. The book has a primary focus on British football grounds, but the discussions will be of wider interest to an international audience. This is essential reading for venue managers, event organisers in sport associations and host cities, security and safety managers in a sporting environment and students on courses leading to careers in sport business.
