Formal Sport

If a sports club, such as a football club, uses a site then the landowner is perfectly within their rights to make a charge for this, especially if they are marking out pitches. Some landowners may want to formalise the use of a facility by a particular club, and this can be done by granting a licence, which gives the club use of a facility at specific times. Another option is a management agreement and you can download a copy.

Giving a sports club exclusive use of a facility requires a lease between the two parties, and because this is seen as a disposal of the land, it is subject to our Field Change Request procedure if the space is protected with us.
