If you operate a sports ground that holds more than 10,000 spectators, you may be required to hold a safety certificate.


A safety certificate may be either:

  • a general safety certificate issued for the use of a sports ground for a specified activity, or activities, during an indefinite period
  • a special safety certificate for the use of a sports ground for a specified activity or activities on a specified occasion or occasions


The fee for a sports ground safety certificate is £49,334
