Brad Mayne on Sports Geek Podcast with Sean CallananBrad Mayne was one of the key people I met on my very first #SportsGeekTrip when he was CEO of American Airlines Center in Dallas, he is now CEO & President at MetLife Stadium in New York I catch up with him to discuss his career in sports and his recent experience hosting Super Bowl XLVIII.  I also reflect on a nightmarish experience leading up to the NRL Grand Final that had a very happy ending.

On this podcast you’ll learn from about:

  • The management differences between an indoor and outdoor stadium
  • How Brad’s ability working with multiple ownership groups was vital in new role at MetLife Stadium
  • How the technology demand on stadiums keeps increasing
  • The customer service demands on stadiums and how MetLife Stadium can turn around a bad fan experience
  • Moving to paperless ticketing and RFID technology
  • What would you do if your phone died before the big game?
