Long title

A Bill to confer further powers on the Football Licensing Authority and to amend its name; and for connected purposes.

Summary

The Football Licensing Authority (FLA) is responsible for licensing league and international football grounds in England and Wales and for overseeing the control of safety at these grounds by local authorities.

The Bill would rename the FLA as the Sports Grounds Safety Authority and would enable it to provide advice about safety at sports grounds generally. However, it would not extend the FLA’s licensing functions or its local authority oversight duties to sports grounds other than football grounds.
