Our Standards

What is the Green Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds, and do you comply?

The Green Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds, sometimes known as the ‘Green Guide’ or ‘Green
Code’ is written by the SGSA (Sports Grounds Safety Authority) and its aim is to ensure safe conditions at all Sports Grounds in England and Wales.

The latest edition was published in 2018 by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. All of our stands are built in compliance with the Green Guide.

What is ground grading? Do we need to upgrade our facilities if we are moving to the next step?

The FA and the National League System provide standardised National Ground Gradings, or steps. Grades run from Grade A (top flight clubs) to Grade H. The NLS incorporates 7 steps. As your club progresses to the next step, there will be new minimum ground grading requirements that you must meet, such as minimum spectator capacities and pitch perimeter barriers. Just contact us with your new requirements and we will be happy to provide you with the best solutions in order to meet your ground upgrade.
