Open Data

One of Sport England’s goals is to constantly build and develop data standards and datasets to give developers the potential to put together powerful tools to encourage people to take part in more sports and activities.

A first step towards this goal is to release the Active Places sport facility data under a Creative Commons open data licence -

Data is updated on a daily basis and provides a comprehensive list of sporting venues with their associated facilities throughout England.  Available formats include related CSV files and JSON.

It is highly recommended that users of the data familiarise themselves with the Sports Data Model ( support documentation to help translate and use this information (see SDM FAQs).
