Premier League clubs to discuss safe standing

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

Top-flight clubs will be discussing safe standing at a meeting of Premier League chairmen and chief executives next week.

The Times reported this morning that rail seating will be on the agenda at the next Premier League shareholders’ meeting, due to be held on Thursday, November 18th.

The Football Supporters’ Federation welcomes this step forward and that clubs are willing to look seriously at the feasibility of safe standing in the Premier League.

FSF safe standing campaign co-ordinator Peter Daykin said: “We welcome the news that safe standing will be discussed by the clubs at the next Premier League meeting.

“Fans have been asking for this to be looked at for many years now and it’s great to see clubs are willing to discuss it.

“Clubs have no doubt seen how well safe standing has been working at Celtic and the value it’s bringing to Celtic Park.

“We’re very interested in seeing what comes from the Premier League meeting and offer our support in any further discussions with clubs and the league.”
