Join us at Orange Vélodrome for ESSMA's Safety & Security Workshop
The two-day workshop will focus on several topics including:
Mapping the fan journey from a security perspective
Enhancing body searches to increase ingress
Ingress & egress management
The presented cases will be linked to crowd management and how Olympique de Marseille handles the challenge creating a safe perimeter around their venue in the middle of the city center, insights on Zone Ex, a risk assessment matrix the Danish League has designed to address matchday and safety challenges, etc.
“It’s great to take in the knowledge of what other stadiums and clubs do to improve their stadium operations. We exchanged knowledge and expertise with all the people we met. It’s completely what I had expected from a platform like ESSMA and I’m looking forward to the next workshop.”
Ioannis Dimogiannis – Stadium & Facilities Manager at Paok FC
About Orange Vélodrome
The 67,000 capacity Orange Vélodrome is an avant-garde, fully connected, eco-friendly venue. In preparation for EURO 2016, Orange Vélodrome needed to be brought into compliance with international standards. In this renovation project, the challenge was not only to modernise the stadium and make it more visually attractive, but also to provide more comfortable facilities for spectators. In addition, the broader project included the restructuring of Stade Delort, an adjoining 5,000-seat rugby stadium, as well as a substantial property development programme for a 100,000 m2 eco-neighbourhood surrounding the stadium.
