Stadium Ushers and Vendors

Stadium ushers take tickets, escort spectators to their seats, and provide spectators with information and direction upon request.

Stadium vendors sell a variety of food items and other wares either by walking around and calling out the name of the food or product they are selling, or by operating small booths or kiosks. Sometimes vendors are hired by the food service franchise that is licensed to sell food in a stadium or sports facility.
