Counter-Terrorism Guidance

For a number of years the UK has been at a threat level of severe (an attack is highly likely) and ground management should have developed plans that are in place to provide protective security appropriate to that level.

Sports grounds generally have effective security and safety measures in place. However, it is important not to be complacent.

These guidance notes have been developed by the SGSA in partnership with NaCTSO to provide more specific guidance for sports grounds management in relation to event management issues.

This is especially important during periods of heightened alert when the national terrorist threat level increases, particularly when it is raised to critical.
