ESSMA (128)

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.

As part of ESSMA’s Stadium Development Report Issue 1 2019, ESSMA visited Sparta Rotterdam and discussed the club’s redevelopment plans for its current Sparta Stadium and the training facilities at Terbregge with Manfred Laros - Director of Sparta Rotterdam - and Kevin Valkenburg - P&O and Legal Affairs - as they are both closely involved in the project.

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.

The first 2019 issue of ESSMA’s Stadium Development Report provides insights in the development and renovation projects of FC Barcelona, Bologna FC, Sparta Rotterdam and AS Monaco.

The European Stadium & Safety Management Association (ESSMA) will meet up during the Fan Experience Workshop. The event will be held in Warsaw (Poland) from 21 to 22 May at Legia Warsaw’s Marshall Jozef Pilsudski Legia Stadium.

During the ESSMA Summit in Porto, ESSMA unveiled its new logo.

Sander van Stiphout – Director International and Program Manager Amsterdam Innovation Arena – discussed more about the innovation challenges at Johan Cruijff ArenA during the ESSMA Summit in Porto.

In total 38 ESSMA delegates from 17 different stadiums, clubs, federations and leagues participated in the ESSMA Lisbon Stadium Tour, supported by Populous, with visits to SL Benfica and Sporting CP.

ESSMA is glad to announce that the sixth edition of the ESSMA Summit will be hosted at Groupama Arena, home of Ferencvárosi TC. After a successful 2019 edition in Porto, we are delighted to invite you to join us in Budapest for the ESSMA Summit 2020.
