Trinity Hall’s Business-Entrepreneurship Club Travels to MetLife Stadium for New York Jets Sports Business Day

On Wednesday, October 19, the Business-Entrepreneurship Club traveled to MetLife Stadium for an inside look at the business behind a professional sports team and complex. MetLife Stadium is home to two NFL teams, the New York Giants and the New York Jets. On this particular day, the New York Jets were hosting “Sports Business Day” for local highschoolers. 
Trinity Hall was one of about 25 other high schools from the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania area that attended the event. This experiential learning field trip was coordinated by the co-leader of the club, Ashley H. ‘24. Ashley’s father Mitch works at the Jets organization and welcomed Ashley and 26 Trinity Hall students from the Business-Entrepreneurship Club to the stadium. 
While at the stadium, the students were given a tour of the facility, which included going onto the football field. Employees from the Jets organization in different departments and positions talked to the students about their day-to-day job responsibilities. Each employee also gave their background and their journey to their current position. Touring the facility and meeting with employees from different departments allowed our students to gain exposure to the different career options in the sports industry. 
Erin Straine, club advisor and art and design faculty member, thought the trip was a great opportunity for the club: “It was a lovely glimpse into the business and how all of these individuals have to work collaboratively across all areas of the organization to get the job done. They spoke about the importance of organizational culture, stakeholder involvement and nurturing business relationships to run a successful entertainment event. It was great, and each student who attended received a ticket to a Jets game!”
