Abstract/Contents:"Owners and managers of mulit-use sports stadia have to be able to accommodate a variety of sporting and non-sporting events such as cricket, rugby, soccer, concerts, exhibitions and shows. The ability to change the playing surface from one use to another, almost overnight, and the need to pay particular attention to television/spectator requirements and corporate expectations is now critical for a successful stadium. The multi-use nature of many sports stadia worldwide has created new challenges for the turf manager. In an attempt to address many of these challenges, the New Zealand Sports Turf Institute has compiled a set of guidelines for managing a turf surface within a multi-use environment. These guidelines have been assembled into a voluntary code of practice for use by stadium managers when booking and managing events. The code of practice divides management of the turf surface into a series of key subject areas. For each subject area, background information and recommmended operational guidelines are proposed that take into account how a specific activity series of activites is likely to affect the performance of the turf surface. Model contract documentation is also included that can be adapted by stadium managers when booking individual events. There are 11 sections in the code of practice: access on to the playing surface, turf protection during non-sporting events, cricket block protection, excavations and constructions, vehicle movement over the playing surface, logo management, firework displays, risk management for cricket, turf repair and replacement, dew control for night time sport, and shade management. The code of practice will be available from the New Zealand Sports Turf Institute towards the end of 2001."
