There are several pieces of legislation about sports ground safety.
- The Sports Grounds Safety Act of 1975
The Secretary of State (for Media and Sport) can designate any sports ground with a seating capacity of more than 10,000 spectators as requiring a safety certificate to admit spectators under the Safety of Sports Grounds Act 1975. Local governments are also empowered under the 1975 Act to provide such safety certifications to certify that sports grounds are safe.
- Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974
Clubs must take reasonable precautions to ensure that spectators are not exposed to health and safety dangers under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act. Failure to do so is a criminal offence. If a fan is hurt due to a club’s failure to avert a known safety risk is a violation of the act.
- Football Spectators Act 1989
The Football Spectators Act of 1989 regulated spectator admissions to specific football matches in England and Wales. The Football Spectators Order 2000 defines this as matches held in international stadiums and Premier League and English Football League facilities.
- Sports Grounds Safety Authority Act 2011
The Sports Ground Safety Authority Act 2011 established the SGSA, which took over the FLA’s roles and responsibilities and added an advising role for general safety at sports grounds outside of England for sports other than football.
- Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007
Suppose a fan is killed due to significant management failings resulting in a gross breach of a duty of care. In that case, a club might face prosecution and maximum fines under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. This might be important if there was a systemic safety failure at a stadium that the club’s management was aware of but did nothing about.
