World’s Largest Event Security Firm Partners with Atlanta Beat
Northridge, CA – May 5, 2010
Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC), the world’s largest event security firm, announces its new 3-year partnership with Women’s Professional Soccer team Atlanta Beat and Kennesaw State University. A member of the Women’s United Soccer Association before its collapse in 2003, the Atlanta Beat became the ninth franchise in Women’s Professional Soccer, which launched in 2009. CSC will be providing services for all Atlanta Beat home games at their new stadium, constructed in partnership with Kennesaw State University. Costing $16.5 million and located of a 21-acre parcel of land, the 8,300 seat facility is the world’s first women’s soccer-specific stadium. While it will function primarily for soccer events with sideline, family section, on-field and suite level seating, it will also accommodate up to 16,000 patrons as a concert venue.
CSC’s services will be provided for the Atlanta Beat under the direction of Shawn McGee, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer, and Kristin Lettiere, Director of Operations. Both CSC and the Atlanta Beat are looking forward to this new partnership, with McGee stating, “The Atlanta Beat and KSU have partnered to build a world class stadium. In our goal to be the best in the world in everything we do, we wanted to make sure that our fans have a great experience every time they attend one of our events. As such, it made sense to partner with CSC. With their customer first mentality and their focus on the safety of the fan, CSC was the perfect partner for our new stadium.”
