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.

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 us.
