Liverpool fans to decide on rail seating

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Liverpool supporter group and FSF affiliates, the Spirit of Shankly (SoS), have said that their consultation on rail seating is entering its final stages.

On Monday 22nd May, SoS members will be asked to vote on what position the organisation should take on rail seating, with the results of that ballot announced the week commencing 29th May.

The vote will follow on from a series of consultation events – SoS will meet with campaigners from the Hillsborough families aswell as holding a public meeting on the issue on Friday, 21st May.

Elsewhere on Merseyside, Liverpool’s leading fan podcast The Anfield Wrap have continued their safe standing campaign. Recently, Anfield Wrap editor Gareth Roberts visited Celtic Park to experience their standing section first-hand.

“The desire to stand is on show at every Liverpool match,” he said. “Not from everyone. But why not create a section and give people the choice?

“Anyone with any doubts about its effectiveness and value within a football ground should visit Celtic.”
