Complex Planning

* Broken-back track versus traditional track

* Sightline issues in track and soccer (football players block spectator views)

Athletic Facilities For Competitors

* Lockers rooms (home and visitors)

* Training spaces

* Referee/umpire facilities

Facility And Maintenance Considerations

Don’t forget about the people and spaces needed to keep the facility running smoothly. The old adage still applies: “You can never have enough storage.” Plan spaces for all of the necessary support services:

* Sound systems

* Public address

* Press-box design

* Broadcasting needs (print media, TV)

* Coaching facilities in the press box

* Maintenance offices

* Storage of supplies

* Grounds storage and facilities
