The paper 'Effects of Legislative Controls on Freedom of Ewood Park Management" is a good example of a management case study. Stadium guide (n. d.) indicates that Ewood Park is a football stadium that is owned and managed by Blackburn Football club. Ewood Park is located in Lancashire and has a seating potential of 31,154. Ewood Park has three-two tier stands and a fourth one-tier stand. The three-two tier stands are The Jack Walker Stand, The Blackburn End Stand and The Darwen End Stand. The single-tier stand is known as Riverside End stand or CIS.
The seating potential of the four stands namely Blackburn End, Jack walker End, Darwen End and Riverside are 8000, 11000, 8000 and 5000 respectively. Ewood Park was built specifically for hosting football matches. However, other events are hosted and this is the reason why its seats are retractable.
