In football, baseball, basketball, and even hockey there are so many breaks in action that concessions see a more steady flow of people. In soccer, there are no breaks except at halftime.

Actually, having worked concession stands in my youth(95-98), this isnt totally accurate. Although I can see why you would think this. Both football and basketball had similar "rushes" to soccer. In fact I would stand around doing nothing for most of the game except at the beginning then halftime. While during the game you would get like 5 people coming up sporadically. During halftime it will get incredibly busy but the staff would try to be prepared for this by having premade food and having dedicated pourers. I dont think I ever really got a "training" session but they did put me with a more experienced person to show me the ropes the first day. And it wasnt rocket science after the first day I knew how to do everything.

Granted both GS and Continental Arena were around for 20+ years by the time I got there and some people there had been with the company since the stadium opened. They did a far better job than RBA does. And training SOME of the staff DOES pay off. If youre able to increase the intake by even 10% that more than pays for their training day and hiring a trainer(who is probably someone on the Del North Staff already)

One server didnt know to tilt the cup while she was pouring my beer. I was standing there coaching her and perfecting her form until another server showed up and did it. Must have been her first day on the job.

Just heard a new radio spot for Saturday's game on ESPN 1050.

Good news, I was afraid the marketing campaign might just be for the opener.

Again it won't produce huge initial results at the gate but is a vital element in increasing RBNY awareness.


It's nice, but not enough. Real awareness is when the final scores and match highlights appear on NY1!

Ora e per sempre. Forza Metro!!!
