Security Guards Define Event Security



(888) 210-7333

Security guards are paramount to protecting large sporting events, which becomes more and more important season after season. 


In the United States, more than 100 million people attend major league sporting events each year. Beyond major leagues, like the NFL, NBA, and MLS, there are countless numbers of college, high school, and other organized sporting events that must be kept safe for fans and participants alike. 


In July 2022, the CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) which governs California high school sports, was forced to put a ban in place for anyone who assaults another attendee, participant, or official at an interscholastic athletic contest. This came about after a rash of violence at their events. 


Sports events are also finding themselves the target of protesters more and more often these days. Just recently, climate protesters disrupted play at the 18th hole of the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship, and this new trend is getting more and more common. 


Additionally, sporting events are often home to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment, and that’s not even considering the value of the facilities that house many events. 


Facing these emerging threats, many sporting events and leagues are looking to security companies like Allstate Security for security guards to provide protection.
