ESSMA (123)

We’re glad to announce that we have launched our ESSMA app. With the app you can find all practical information related to the ESSMA Summit. The app has been developed in co-operation with myStadiumsApp.

ESSMA interviewed Oleksii Zhukovin, Deputy Head of the Competition Department at FC Zenit during the Safety & Security Workshop in Dortmund. Oleksii Zhukovin was one of the speakers and presented the stewarding system transformation of FC Zenit when moving to the new Krestovsky stadium.

It is with great pleasure that ESSMA can announce the addition of a new Advisory Committee member: Leif Bjørn (Security Manager Telia Parken). We are confident that ESSMA will benefit from his experience and we look forward working together.

During the ESSMA Safety & Security Seminar in Dortmund, Lasse Bauer (Supporter Liaison Officer) and Mickel Lauritsen (former Director of Security & Stadium Operations) presented how and why Brøndby IF developed their own pyrotechnics. ESSMA interviewed Lasse Bauer about the different steps in the process and the reaction of their fans.

ESSMA interviewed Phivos Constantinides, General Manager at GSP Stadium, during the Safety & Security Workshop in Dortmund about the importance of training stewards and how to motivate them. Furthermore, he gave insights about his presentation regarding steward training and formation at GSP Stadium, home of Cypriot First Division teams Apoel FC and AC Omonia.

ESSMA interviewed Majella Smyth, who has been Head Groundsman at the AVIVA Stadium in Dublin for several years. He will participate in the ESSMA Summit 2018.

As Oscar Perez is leaving ESSMA, we would like to thank him for his years of commitment, passion and dedication in the growth of ESSMA. His support has contributed in significant progress in Spain with a successful 2016 Summit in Bilbao. We would like to wish him all the best with the further development of INsports Management and the organisation of the EuroLatam congress, which builds a bridge between Europe and Latin America.

ESSMA supported the French Professional Football League – LFP – with a Belgian stadium tour for 30 representatives from 13 clubs. The delegation visited KV Oostende, Royal Antwerp FC, KAA Gent, KV Mechelen and STVV to listen and learn how they are managing topics within CRM, hospitality, ticketing, construction and revenue generation.
