Temporary closure of Springfield Stadium (FOI)

Temporary closure of Springfield Stadium (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 18 February 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Regarding the recent announcement by the SoJ of the closure of Spring Field stadium to remove fencing in support of FA requirement for a potential Jersey Bulls promotion which displaces grass roots football at short notice.


Were the Jersey Bulls a privately owned company given advanced warning by the SoJ on the timing of this closer ahead of other user groups for example the JFA and local football clubs?


Do the Jersey Bulls pay for the use of Spring Field Stadium?


What fees do Jersey Bulls pay to the SoJ for the use of the stadium?


Are the Jersey Bulls paying or contributing to this development? 


Will the Jersey Bulls pay an increase to any service change given the enhancement to these facilitates? 

I appreciate other changes will occur at the time to the betterment of the stadium but the timing of this closure, is solely, as published solely to meet the Bulls requirement.



The Jersey Football Association (JFA) and Jersey Bulls were notified on the afternoon of 24 January 2022 and the other clubs were contacted the following morning.
