That's missing the point entirely. Clubs, supporters, TV people all want better atmospheres. This delivers on that without impacting the bottom line too drastically.

The net effect? Going to football becomes more marketable.

To focus on the short term cost of replacing some seats, or looking at it as a longer term, explicitly revenue generating opportunity deserves the disdain that such an approach will inevitably bring from supporters groups.

Anyhow, we'll see how it pans out in practice.
Oh I don't know.
