Management of movement of visitors in a sports facility
Istočni mediteranski univerzitet, Arhitektonski fakultet, Kipar


Management of movement of visitors in a facility is essential for a successful organization of a sports event. From a visitor's entrance into the premises of the sports facility to its place on the stands, corridors have to be defined. Depending on its position, a corridor is additionally divided into logical zones: a zone between a border of the plot and the facility, an outer zone, an internal zone, a zone of seats or stands. Precise specification of needs within a zone is used to organize movement of visitors safely and efficiently. Communications can be horizontal and vertical. Each group has set rules for design and maintenance. Depending on the applied technical solution, entrances have a defined capacity that must be taken into account when a sporting event is organized. Besides the entrance for visitors, there are many entrances dedicated to specific groups such as competitors, VIP, security, service, medical assistance, media, persons with special needs, etc. Management of movement of users in a facility must be a subject of careful analysis because it is of a great importance for the general impression on the quality of a sports facility.
