Brighton & Hove Albion have announced that they will be investigating the possibility of introducing safe standing at the Amex stadium.

In an interview for the club website, chief executive Paul Barber said: “As a progressive club which puts the match day experience very high on our list of priorities for fans, we want to be well prepared for any changes which may come.”
