SGSA Licence to Admit Spectators

The annual licence issued by the SGSA 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.
