ESSMA (140)

The inaugural ESSMA-BASIS Smart & Sustainable Stadium Workshop was co-hosted by Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium on Day 1 and the home of England Rugby, the Rugby Football Union (RFU’s) Twickenham Stadium on Day 2. 

This year’s World Stadium Congress was held 21-24 May in Doha, Qatar with a focus on the delivery requirements for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Together with several stakeholders, participants had the chance to discuss pre-event, on the day and post-event delivery requirements – from construction, to fan experience, to legacy and beyond. 

With the aim of bringing the best possible value to our members, we published the ESSMA Services website. This website gives you a well-defined overview of our services. 

On day 2 of the Pitch Management Workshop in Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium and Training Centre ESSMA members learned more about day-to-day ops and player injury management further on the program were two panel debates and a behind-the-scenes tour. 

The two-day Pitch Management Workshop in Leicester City FC’s King Power Stadium and Training Centre brought together ESSMA Members to learn, network and knowledge-share on all aspects pertaining to pitch management, from pitch renovations, tools & technologies, to player injury management, budget control and managing events. 

The host venue for ESSMA's two-day Pitch Management Workshop, held May 10 and 11, was Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium. Throughout the season, their pitch has been the focus of much talk in both the grounds staff sector and wider afield thanks to the hard work and dedication of Grounds Manager John Ledwidge and his team.

The European Stadium & Safety Management Association will assemble during its European Stadium Tour in Russia (Moscow and Saint Petersburg) from 2 to 5 July 2017. Currently, we are offering an early bird price, go to our website for more details. Don't miss out!
