stadiums could not meet consumers’ growing demand; the relevant policies and regulations areincomplete or are not fully implemented; corporations are in rapid development but weak in the industry’s
self-government. By analyzing stadiums industry related policies and regulations in our country, the article divides policies and regulations into three classes: programmatic, guiding and industrial;
and analyzes the pros and cons of the three classes. Meanwhile, drawing on the concept of stadiums industry overseas as well as the experience of the reform of cultural industry in china through
comparative study, the article focuses on the need of the policies and legal protection for the stadium industry development in China.

the industry is implemented.

regulations issued by the State Council or relevant ministries and commissions; secondly, the guiding policies and regulations implemented by various ministries and commissions and local governments;
thirdly, the standards, conventions and other technology and management regulations required by the industrial development. Overall speaking, the characteristics are as follows: firstly, the
intensively released new policies, compared to the early published sports laws, are more pertinent and efficient, and point directly to the pains of sports industry development. Secondly, seeing from
the time course, the national policies and regulations tend to promote the public stadiums gradually increase the openness degree and utilization rate. Thirdly, the country encourages the
market-oriented management of stadiums, but the guarantee policies in terms of tax and security are insufficient.
