Safe and secure sports grounds for all sports
Following the terrorist incidents in France that took place in 2015, the UK National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) has been reviewing its advice. The SGSA has been working with NaCTSO to ensure sports grounds are kept updated and has developed some advice specifically for sports grounds.
How to calculate the safe capacity of a sports ground?
The responsibility for calculating the safe capacity of a ground rests with the ground management. Where any part or parts of a ground are covered by a safety certificate issued by the local authority the capacity calculated by ground management should be reviewed by the local authority and if validated included in the safety certificate. Further information and detail is available in the Green Guide.
What they're saying
The safe capacity calculations of all of our stadiums by SGSA was a game changer for us, we enforced the number strictly and all the fans really appreciated the more safe and welcoming environment at the venues.
