Competition management comprises three phases, namely:
- Preparation before the game;
- Responsibilities during the game; and
- Responsibilities after the game.
For a well-planned competition, the project needs careful planning. Every detail such as the type of sports events to be included, the interest of the clientele’, equipment, venue, budget, time frame, officials, the working force behind the project, the season of the year, programs to be prepared, safety and convenience of both athletes, officials, and audience/spectators are all to be given optimum consideration.
The quality and success of a sports competition reflect its management and administration. Efficient management demands the full understanding of the program itself and belief in the objectives of the organisers and the participants.
To attain success and orderliness in the conduct of the competition, there should be guiding rules and regulations to be followed, proper scheduling of games, a safe and sufficient venue, availability of equipment needed, and officials to rule the games.
Competitions or meet managements are evaluated through the way the competition is carried out careful consideration of every detail is a must for the success of the project, gaining of respect and confidence of the participants and audience, and a good reputation as a manager.
