During ESSMA’s Safety and Security Workshop in Copenhagen, Joris De Lange - Matchday Operations & Security Manager - talked about the challenges AFC Ajax has faced in terms of attracting, training and retaining stewards and how they dealt with it by creating their own in-house stewarding company, called Stewarding Triple A.

On 13 and 14 November 2018, ESSMA organised its 3rd Safety & Security Workshop. After two successful editions at Stuttgart and Dortmund, this edition of the Safety & Security workshop took place in Copenhagen at FC København’s Telia Parken and at Brøndby IF’s Brøndby Stadium, where over 55 ESSMA Members got the chance to network and get new insights during presentations given by experts in their field.

Ken Scott, Head of Inspectorate at SGSA, presented the recently launched 6th edition of the Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds, more commonly known as the Green Guide, during the ESSMA Safety & Security Workshop at Telia Parken. The Green Guide helps sports grounds owners and operators calculate a safe capacity for their venue. It is used around the world by architects and designers as a best practice guide for the development and refurbishment of stadiums.

This year’s Safety & Security Workshop was organised at Telia Parken and Brøndby Stadium. Over 55 members from 14 countries learned insights and shared knowledge related to crowd management, stewarding, pyrotechnics and new technologies.
