Could anyone enlighten me about the ground gradings system?<P>What is actually the demands for a ground to qualify for conference?<P>In Norway I've been to grounds both in norwegian premier league and 1.division who makes New Lodge stand out as Wembley in comparison! (Not kidding!)

I thought it had to do with all the things below:<BR>Turnstiles for fans of each team.<BR>Adequate Floodlighting.<BR>Ample seating<BR>Terracing of some sort all the way round (where there are no seats obviously)<BR>And probably a whole host of other safety type issues, such as crumbling terraces, stewarding,fire access etc.<BR>Also no trees in the terraces, that seems to be a sticky point too. images/icons/smile.gif" border="0

As far as I know the perimeter fence has to be at least 8ft high.
