From the Document: "Bombings using improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are a common security concern related to terrorism and violence in the United States (U.S.). High-profile domestic incidents have occurred and international attacks are frequently in the news. Sports league and venues are not immune from IED incidents, including bomb threats, suspicious items, and actual bombings. This guide defines tasks and related processes that security managers and staff at sports venues can use to understand and improve their ability to perform counter-IED (C-IED) activities and make decisions. For the purposes of this Guide, sports leagues include professional leagues (major, minor, and independent) and amateur associations (intercollegiate, interscholastic, and Olympic). This guide is designed to provide security managers and staff at sports venues with: 1) A practical framework to examine their ability to perform C-IED activities, and 2) Supporting guidance and materials to strengthen their C-IED preparedness."
