Licence to Admit Spectators - 2014/15

An image of the Football Spectators Act 1989

As the present football season draws to an end, the SGSA turns its attention to the process of issuing licences for the forth coming season.

The annual licence issued to each club specifies the areas of the ground to which spectators may be admitted. Under the provisions of the 1989 Act it is an offence to admit spectators to any of the above grounds, or parts of those grounds, which are not licensed. Conditions in the licence do not apply to other (non-football) events taking place at those grounds.

Club’s promoted into the Football League Championship for the first time are allowed up to 3 years to convert the ground to all seated accommodation.
