What we do?

The Sports Grounds Safety Authority helps to create the conditions for safe and enjoyable experiences for spectators at all sports grounds, not only in England and Wales, but around the world.  We provide trusted advice and guidance, and we will use our experience and commitment to drive continuous improvement.
