The European Stadium & Safety Management Association (ESSMA) will gather on 8 and 9 October at OPEL ARENA, home of 1. FSV Mainz 05,  for its Safety & Security Workshop

ESSMA interviewed, Jan van Merwijk - Director Feijenoord Stadium - about their upcoming development project, Feyenoord City. Feyenoord City is a broad urban development including a new river-based stadium and a redevelopment of the current stadium. With the new 63,000 capacity stadium, Feyenoord Rotterdam wants to move the club forward in terms of commercial, organisational and team aspect. With the project, the revenue streams of the club should substantially increase due to additional ticket sales, higher revenues from hospitality, enhanced sponsor value and non-football events.

ESSMA interviewed, Scott Brooks - Head Groundsman at St George’s Park - about the daily pitch operations at the Football Association's National Football Centre. Delegates of our Pitch Management Workshop on 20 and 21 August will have the opportunity to visit the facilities during a two-day tour.

This year’s Fan Experience Workshop was organised at Marshall Jozef Pilsudski Legia Stadium, home of Legia Warsaw. Over 46 members from 16 countries learned insights and shared knowledge linked to stadium enhancing experiences, fan zones, loyalty, rewarding and attracting fans to the stadium.

ESSMA (the European Stadium & Safety Management Association) is proud and honoured to share that the 2019 edition of our annual Development & Operations Workshop will take place at the recently inaugurated Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
