Over the years I’ve done many cases about sports grounds and stadia.
As a result I decided to apply to become Chairman of the Football Licensing Authority, the body set up by Government after the Hillsborough disaster in an attempt to prevent a recurrence of that disaster. I did that job for six years. It was very challenging. Government considered abolishing the authority. In fact it survived and indeed had its remit extended. It is now called the Sports Ground Safety Authority and goes from strength to strength.
I have written an article about my experiences, and my work in that area, in the latest edition of KC legal update which you can access via the following link:
I hope you might find it interesting.
