SGSA Strategic Plan 2020-24

We are pleased to present the Sports Grounds Safety Authority’s (SGSA’s) Strategic Plan 2020-24.

Sport is a central part of our national culture. Every week millions of people in the UK attend football, rugby, horse racing and other sporting events. Thanks to the dedication and commitment of all those who work in stadium safety, the UK is one of the safest places in the world to watch sport live. The SGSA’s priority is to maintain and build on these high standards and to help spread best practice around the world. We do this through our regulatory role within football and our advisory work with other sports and in other countries.

Our overall aim for the next five years is to improve the safety of the sector, both domestically and internationally.

The ambitious plan outlines four key areas of priority:

  • Continuously improve our performance as the safety regulator for football grounds in England and Wales.
  • Raise the profile and status of sports grounds safety in the UK and internationally.
  • Become the strategic safety partner of choice for governments, sports governing bodies and organisers of major events.
  • Improve our efficiency and performance as a non-departmental public body.
