Developer area

Working together with Sport England, spogo wants you to help get the nation more active by encouraging the tech world to use data that is core to our website.

Our long term goal 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. We are therefore working towards releasing more of our data under licence (based on the National Archives Open Data Licence. The data released so far is available below.


  • Comprehensive list of sporting venues throughout England including facilities listed to that venue (sports halls, football pitches, tennis courts etc.)

Spogo data

  • Linking to ActivePlaces venues, a list of activities being run at each of these locations
  • Managed and maintained by spogo
