Why even small sporting events need security fencing

30th August 2016

Are you in charge of hosting a local sporting event, such as a football match, tennis match or outdoor athletic competition? If so, you may be uncertain regarding whether you need to invest in security fencing for the event. You may think that your event is too small to attract any trouble or warrant this protection level. However, we at Zaun believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry. There are several good reasons to buy or rent security fencing to protect small sporting events, which we believe you should consider before making your final decision.

1. Even small events attract passionate fans

Sporting events always generate passion among fans of certain teams or athletes. Of course, passion is usually a good thing, but some fans can take it a little too far and start causing problems. Security fencing can help you keep out the most aggressive fans, protect the competing teams or athletes along with the more reasonable fans and contain any problems before they escalate. Of course, we don’t recommend shutting in aggressive fans who are already within your fencing perimeter. Still, security fencing can channel them to towards your hired security and prevent them from running amok.

2. The site and sporting equipment need to be protected

Thieves who want to steal sporting equipment and vandals who want to damage the site don’t care how big or small the associated event is; they only care about the opportunity to carry out their criminal activities. Could you not give them that opportunity? Investing in security fencing can protect the site and the sporting equipment when there’s no one around to keep an eye on them.

3. Security fencing can reassure prospective attendees

People want to feel safe and secure when they attend a sporting event. Security fencing has an enormous and positive psychological effect at these events. In fact, if prospective attendees know that an event will be protected by fencing, they may feel more confident about buying their tickets.

Here at Zaun, we offer temporary security fencing that can easily be deployed as high-quality sports fencing for small, local events. What’s more, you’ll be delighted by how affordable it is. So don’t let your local sporting event go unprotected – invest today.
