Smoking Bans at Sports Grounds

No smoking in spectator areas at public sports grounds.

Section 6A of the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000 makes a number of outdoor public places smoke-free.


From 7 January 2013, smoking is banned in spectator areas at public sports grounds and other recreational areas in NSW. However, smoking will only be banned when an organised sporting event is being held.

Major sporting facilities are included under the definition of a public sports ground and will be required to comply with the new law. Other outdoor sporting facilities, such as Local Council playing fields, are also covered by the new law.
