Sport Facility Operations Management
A Global Perspective
- Eric Schwarz, Associate Professor of Sport Business, Saint Leo University, Florida, USA
This is the first book to take a truly global look at facilities operations management in the sport industry. The lead author, Eric Schwarz, and his co-author Stacey Hall have joined forces with Simon Shibli an academic from Sheffield Hallam (a leading University for Sport Management in the UK).
Sport facilities of all shapes and sizes are an ingrained part of global sport management culture. As such, it is inevitable that students who enter into the field of sport management will interact with the management and operations of a sport facility at some point during their career.
This book is published with the sport management lecturer and student in mind, complete with a companion site.
This textbook provides the theoretical foundation for sport facility operations management, and is supplemented both in the text and in the companion site containing: schematics, planning documents, sample forms, and sample ownership/ management structures.
In addition, each author will infuse research and experiences from sport facilities around the world (North America; Europe; Middle East/ Asia; Australia and New Zealand) to ensure that a global perspective is at the core of this book.
