13 English clubs back pilot scheme to bring back standing fan sections
Posted by TN Bhoy on 12/11 at 2:23 pm
I support this

quote:


Thirteen English league clubs support reintroducing standing at football grounds, according to a fans' group.

On Tuesday, the Football Supporters' Federation is hoping to win the backing of MPs for its plans for a small-scale trial at Premier League clubs.

It believes the pilot scheme would show standing - outlawed after the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 - is now a safe way to watch football.

The Premier League have released a statement opposing the idea.

I do as well. Pretty sure Villa were the first English club to suggest bringing back safe terraces.

I've read a good bit about this the past couple days and I support it.

Just realize at the end of the article they mentioned possibly introducing nets around the field to prevent incidents like the one on Sunday. I definitely do not support that.

I like the idea, I just worry about the timing of it, considering all of the press this year about Hillsborough.

@david_conn: And re @The_FSF standing campaign: Villa, their fans and their police want to trial a standing area, but not allowed. LINK

I don't know much about the subject, but are fans not allowed to stand in their seats at games? Or is this just trying to bring back standing only sections?

I don't know about lower leagues, but at least in the EPL, every seat is a "seat", every seat has a ticket. Fans *can* stand, but usually, it's only the supporters' groups that do.

Are you familiar with the Hillsborough and Heysel disasters? Those are what brought this about.

I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around what they are talking about.

Try to find the BBC article/expose about Hillsbourough. That should give you a better idea of what the standing terraces were.

Uefa won't allow this so this is a non-starter...all seaters were required after the aforementioned disasters...

It's allowed in Germany for league matches. During European competitions, the seats have to be placed down.

UEFA's rules on stadiums only apply to its competition.

I guess the idea of long metal bleachers, as in American stadiums, doesn't really appeal to Europeans.
