Summary Statement

From the Paper:

"College sporting activities have become important financial sources for institutions, some of which derive significant financial revenues from such events ("Revenues from Sports Venues"). Last year, the basketball team in UWO realized over 1 million dollars from ticket sales during the competition season. However less than half of the fans were able to buy tickets to see the UWO Wolverines games.
"The problem here is that the current Stadium on campus is quite small. Its capacity is only 15,000 seats; such limited seating means that only less than half of all the fans willing to buy tickets for the games actually did. The rest were unable to see the games because of limited seating capacity at the stadium. This has led to the added problem of loitering on campus, as fans unable to buy tickets for the games still hang around on campus. There are some concerns raised by the fire department that emergency exits are limited. Stadiums pose many special problems for firefighters (Houston Fire Department). This new stadium would take into consideration all necessary security measures as well as concerns about fire exits. To effectively manage a fire or other emergency situation, emergency personnel must be familiar with apparatus access, HVAC systems, fire command centers, construction, occupancy loads and unusual hazards, and the UWO Stadium Complex will be designed to accommodate these issues."
