Due to their great popularity, sports events attract large numbers of people: competitors, spectators, suppliers, volunteers, etc. Organisers of a sports event or competition thus find themselves working with large amounts of money.
The consequences of an incident or accident
This type of organisation is obviously not without risk: just a small incident can have severe consequences for those attending the event, the surrounding population, the infrastructure involved, the property of third parties, as well as the image of the organisers.
Cancellation of a sports event
Organisers of sport events are obviously also confronted with the risk of a sports event being postponed or cancelled. This can be due to a whole range of causes: absence of a sportsman or team, an accident or incident involving one of the participants, a terrorist threat or exceptional weather conditions.
