Finally PL and Championship teams are being asked if they want to ‘pilot’ safe standing later this season. Clever ones have got ahead of the game and already installed the necessary kit. My understanding is that essentially everybody gets a designated spot and has the option to sit or lean against the rail in front of them. I assume that if you buy a ticket for one of these spots you will be wanting to stand for the majority of the game. I don’t think these seats would expand the capacity of any stadium. Hoos said in an interview that we would want to go down this route, but I doubt we will volunteer to be a pilot because it costs money to install the seats and there will have to be consultation with ST holders in the parts of the ground affected. If you want to install these you have to provide for both home and away fans. Upper Loft and Upper School End would be the obvious places to start, but I’d love to see (safe) standing crowds in all of the Loft, School End and Paddocks, like the old days. Remember, you always have the option to sit in these places (though I’m not sure about the view if everyone else is standing). I’m a fan, having experienced this system (and old style terracing) at various European games. But that’s just me, so I’ve done a little poll.
