#CollegeSeries Stadium Security & Operations Night

Sponsored by Temple University's Fox School of Business

On Monday, April 10, college students, recent graduates and professors are invited to go behind the scenes with top security officials from the Philadelphia Phillies, who oversee stadium security measures at all sporting events and megastar concerts at Citizens Bank Park, during this exclusive #CollegeSeries event.

Event Details

  • Learn from Phillies team officials who oversee stadium security during a moderated question-and-answer session in the Media Room at Citizens Bank Park. Panelists will provide excellent insight into their area of business, with topics such as what goes into providing essential security measures and risk analysis for every major event at the ballpark from sporting events to concerts. Speakers will also share their career advice and experience, which includes being a part of the recent Phillies World Series run! Speakers include:
  • Practice networking with Phillies executives and other special guests during a Phillies Networking Hour. Meet informally with front office personnel from various departments, as well as those who spearhead the Phillies intern and Phillies Ballgirls programs. Attendees are invited to bring their resumes. During this time, attendees are also welcome to take photos with the 2022 National League Champion Trophy and 2008/1980 World Series Trophies, as well as meet 1993 National League Champions Mickey Morandini and Milt Thompson (also a coach for the 2008 World Champion Phillies).
  • Meet members of Temple University’s Fox School of Business, who will be on-site to share information about their graduate programs.

Program includes a ticket to that night’s 6:40 p.m. game against the Miami Marlins. Your game ticket also includes a $12 concession credit.
