Sports grounds licence

The Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975 and the Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Act 1987 require certain sports grounds to apply to the local authority for a ‘safety certificate’. Generally this means sports grounds with a capacity for more than 10,000 spectators (designated stadium), or stands in sports grounds providing covered accommodation for more than 500 spectators (regulated stand).

For information on whether a sports ground requires a safety certificate, or for an application for a safety certificate, please contact the Licensing Unit using the details below.
