Seating areas at football grounds which incorporate barriers have a "positive impact on spectator safety", a government report has found.

The interim report from the Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) found such seating areas "mitigate the risk of crowd collapse".

It comes after the government stated it "will work with fans and clubs towards introducing safe standing".

Sports Minister Nigel Adams said he "welcomed" the SGSA's findings.

"Over a million people watch live football at a ground every week, and having spoken to fans across the country, I know that safe standing is an issue many feel passionately about," he said.

Man Utd want to install rail seating.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51457337

Manchester United have applied for permission to install rail seating for up to 1,500 fans at Old Trafford.

United, one of the major supporters of safe standing, made the request to their local Safety Advisory Group (SAG) in December 2019.

The club proposes to replace some existing seats in the north-east corner of the stadium.

Season ticket holders in that area have been told a safe standing trial is likely to take place later this season.

In minutes published from a recent fans' forum meeting, United said it believed the introduction of rail seating will "enhance spectator safety" in areas of "persistent standing".

It added that the SAG is still reviewing the request.

I suppose it saves a bit of time when they decide to walk out after 60 mins

Everton fans will want it for the entire stadium but the away section will be fitted with recaro seats as away fans are expected to stay longer

Manchester United have received permission to install 1,500 barrier seats - standing with rails - at Old Trafford as a trial measure.

United will install the new section in the north-east quadrant for the 2020-21 season after Trafford council approval.

If the trial proves successful, the club will look to install barrier seats in other areas of the stadium.

Does that take into account social distancing?
