Assessment Of Crowd Management Strategies Used For Football Events
In Government-Owned Sports Stadia In Nairobi County, Kenya
Spectator violence in stadiums is part of a larger set of problems related to misbehaviour in football and it has resulted into deaths and injuries during football events, especially where rival football clubs are playing.
This is especially exacerbated where fans seating arrangement is not properly demarcated.
The purpose of this study was therefore to assess crowd management strategies applied by the management of government-owned sports stadia in Nairobi County, Kenya.
The management strategies the study sought to assess were mainly on security arrangements in terms of the pre-event, event and post-event preparations and arrangements.
