Codes Of Conduct Affecting The National Basketball Association
The National Basketball Association is a multi-million dollar business that provides sports entertainment to millions of people around the world. As such, there is an extraordinary amount of expectations in place to ensure that every fan is entertained when they go to a game or come in contact with anything associated with the NBA. Some of those expectations are applied to the people who provide NBA products and services and others expectations apply to the players when they are on and off the court.
The expectations that surround fans are covered under the Fan Code of Conduct. This Code affects any fan that attends an NBA game and was created to ensure that certain standards were in place that would let fans know how they are expected to act when they go to an NBA game. The expectations extend to how security forces are dispersed at an NBA arena and the expectations for sales of alcohol.
Avid fans might be aware of some of these expectations because they may have heard some of them on the public address system during a game. The announcements serve as a friendly reminder only, but should be taken seriously because failure to comply could cost someone their right to stay at the game, or might go so far as affecting the validity of their season tickets.
Some fans might not be aware that there is an expectation in place that limits the sale of alcohol during a game. If the 3rd quarter is coming to an end and a fan wants to buy a refreshing beer, they have until the start of the 4th quarter to purchase one. They may be disappointed when to go to buy a beer if someone can determine that they have already purchased two that evening. The expectations on beer consumption limit fans to 2 beers that total 24 ounces during an NBA game.
The expectations also extend to the arena management too. They are expected to maintain a designated driver program at every NBA arena. Fans are happy of course, to learn about these expectations because they can now visit NBA games and have a good time watching the games and not have to watch people try to control their consumption of alcohol. The NBA arena staff is happy to do this small service for them.
Of course, the players have their own expectations to adhere to and those are the Rules and Regulations of the National Basketball League. These rules ensure that every player knows what is expected of them when they don a team jersey. No player wants to violate those policies because the violation could prove detrimental to them getting their contract renewed or having to pay a fine for their transgression.
The NBA has many expectations in place that apply to the vendors that have a licensee agreement with the NBA. The Licensee and Supplier Code of Conduct establish expectations for their employment practices, ethical standards and any environmental requirements that they must adhere to. All of these Codes of Conduct are in place to allow everyone to have a quality experience when they are exposed to the NBA in any way, shape or form.
