Safety concerns on the rise for major sports events
Duluth News Tribune
From London to Sochi to Rio de Janeiro, the deadly bomb attacks on the Boston Marathon raised new concerns on April 15 over safety at major sports events around the world, including the Olympics and World Cup. "When you have an event of any nature — a marathon, parade — it's only as safe as the city itself," London Marathon race chief executive Nick Bitel said. "If it's not held in a stadium, you can't do a lockdown like you may do in a building."

Event tickets and property rights go hand in hand
The Courier of Montgomery County
Restrictions or outright bans on reselling tickets for live sports and entertainment events have been in place for years in many cities, and particularly around certain venues. The stated purpose has been to protect fans from ticket scalpers who buy up tickets and resell them, usually at higher prices, although sometimes below the printed value if that's what the market dictates. But Texas Rep. Rene Oliveira believes such rules do more harm to the ticket holders who are not scalpers and who want to sell or give their tickets to someone else. He has introduced a bill that would prevent original sellers or venues from putting restrictions on the resale of tickets.

Sports tourism key to boosting tax dollar in Palm Beach, Fla.
Sun Sentinel
Lacrosse or The PGA? For Palm Beach County tourism officials striving to boost visitor arrivals to the region — and the dollars they bring — the answer is both. Even though the county continues to attract major and repeat events like international polo and professional golf tourneys, tourism officials see a wider plane of sporting activities as one of the keys to developing a year round economic engine. The county is increasingly attracting attention from a wider range of sports groups beyond the usual football, golf, and tennis tournaments, sports specialists say.
