The paper "Crisis Management of Blackburn Rovers Football And Athletic Plc" is a perfect example of a case study on management. Ewood Park is a football stadium although it has a multi-sports facility. It is located in Blackburn, Lancashire, and has been hosting the Blackburn Rovers club since 1890. The stadium was officially opened in 1882 and has a capacity of 31,154. The stadium has four sections which are Darwen End, Riverside Stand-it stands on the banks of R. Darwen-Blackburn End, and the Jack Walker Stand named after a former club owner, Jack Walker.
Ewood Park stadium is as big as 115 yards. It is worth noting that this stadium holds several sporting activities such as swimming and athletics in addition to indoor games. Further than this, it is a site of a club shop and a blue café . It has executive boxes that can be used for various meetings and conferences and can accommodate about 1000 delegates. It also has got big screens in the corner of the stadium which can be used for presentations. The management team has the intention of extending the stadium to hold a capacity of 40,000 fans.
The stadium is usually quite busy throughout the years hosting various local and international sporting activities. On average, the level of attendance has been increasing tremendously over the last three years due to the high rate of events taking place in this stadium. LEGISLATIVE CONTROLS Ewood Park has complied with a number of legislations especially those related to the safety of all the people in the stadium from the sportsmen to the fans and staff. Some of the legislation includes; safety of Sports Grounds Act of 1975, the Safety of Sports grounds Regulation of 1987 the football Spectators Act of 1988, Environmental and Safety Information Act of 1988 among others.
Some of these legislations intend to control the use of venues, an issue that hampers the management of the venue. For example, an authority could charge an applicant the cost of work reasonably involved in the processing of an application for the issue, replacement of cancellation of a certificate.
