SGSA logo

The SGSA has published an application process for league 1 and 2 clubs in the English Football League (EFL) who are permitted to, and wish to install dual pupose seating and standing areas

The SGSA issues licences to clubs in the Premeir League and the EFL Championship, Wembley and the Principality stadium as a means to enforce the Government's all-seater policy. Standing accommodation is permitted at grounds in leagues 1 and 2 for clubs that have not previously been in the Premier League or Championship for more than three years or at those clubs currently in the Premier League or Championship but not yet subject to the all-seater policy. The Government’s all-seater policy does not allow standing accommodation at the grounds of clubs who have been in the Premier League or Championship for more than three years.

Clubs not subject to the all-seater policy are able to install dual purpose areas should they wish, subject to meeting the required standards set by the SGSA.
