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?

Manchester City are to install 5,620 rail seats this summer to "enhance supporter safety" at Etihad Stadium.

The seats, which can be folded away to create a 'safe standing' area with barriers, will be installed in the lower tier of the South Stand.

Standing at grounds in the top two tiers of English football is banned, but City say this work means they will be ready should the rules change.

The seats will be installed in time for the start of the 2021-22 season.

I’m sure the cardboard cutouts, empty seats and hired influencers will be overjoyed.

Government plans to lift football standing ban.

Plans to lift the ban on standing in the English Premier League and Championship are set to be announced by the government, the BBC has learned.

It is thought a handful of grounds will be able to use designated safe standing areas before the end of the season.

It would mean for the first time in over 25 years, fans of some top flight football clubs would be legally allowed to stand and watch their team play.

An official announcement is expected as soon as next month.

The chairman of the Football Supporters Association, Malcolm Clarke, said it was a "welcome" development that would benefit all fans.

He added: "People who want to stand should be able to do so in safety. Those who want to sit should be able to do so without having their view blocked."

Premier League and Championship clubs invited to trial safe standing

Premier League and Championship clubs have been asked for expressions of interest to pilot safe standing areas this season.
Clubs have until 6 October to submit an application to the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA).
"If approved, they will be able to offer licensed standing areas from 1 January 2022," said the SGSA.
"With independent research now complete, and capacity crowds back at grounds across the country, now is the right time to make progress."
Premier League clubs Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Wolves have all had rail seating installed at their grounds.
Manchester United and Wolves are likely to apply for the safe standing scheme.

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool boss says 'good moment' to consider safe standing.
It is a "good moment" to consider bringing in safe standing at stadiums, says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Premier League and Championship clubs can apply to pilot safe standing areas from January 2022.
Standing in English football's top two divisions was outlawed after the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, which led to the deaths of 97 Liverpool fans.
"I'm pretty sure the people are now responsible enough to do it in the right way," said Klopp.
"The stadiums are completely different to the time when really sad, sad things happened.
"The construction is different, all these kind of things. I like the idea and I'm especially excited about how much better could the atmosphere be at Anfield if we have safe standing.
"I would be really surprised if it could be even better but I'm open for that so let's see."

Chelsea v Liverpool to mark return of standing after near 30-year absence from top two tiers.

Chelsea's Premier League game against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on 2 January will mark the return of standing to the English top flight after nearly 30 years.

Premier League clubs Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea and Championship side Cardiff have all had their applications to be part of a safe standing trial approved.

Since 1994, grounds in the first and second tiers of the English football pyramid have been required by law to be all-seaters.

"I'm pleased to approve these five clubs as early adopters of licensed safe standing areas for the second half of the season," said sports minister Nigel Huddleston.

"The time is now right to properly trial safe standing in the Premier League and EFL Championship ahead of a decision on a widespread roll-out.

"Safety is absolutely paramount and the SGSA [Sports Grounds Safety Authority] is working hand-in-glove with the clubs on this.

Safe standing in Premier League: 'My opinion has completely changed'

For most of the past 33 years, Margaret Aspinall has been opposed to standing at football matches.

On 15 April 1989 her 18-year-old son and Liverpool fan James went through the turnstiles and on to the terraces at the Leppings Lane End at Hillsborough.

He and 96 others were killed by a crush caused by police failures, a poorly designed, regulated and maintained venue, and delays in the emergency service response.

As Chelsea prepare to host Liverpool on Sunday in the first English top-flight game in front of standing fans in almost 30 years, Aspinall is now in favour of supporters standing.

"I never believed in any form of safe standing whatsoever, but my opinion has completely changed," she told BBC Sport.

"Those who want to stand should be allowed to stand.

"Fans are treated completely differently now to what they were in the 1970s and 1980s. They are really monitored. They are more careful. They've learned lessons because of Hillsborough."

Chief Constable of Cheshire Police opening his yap before engaging brain.

Who knew that standing up in the ground makes it easier to sneak alcohol in?

***Warning*** If you are upset or angered by the lazy stereoypes of football fans that demonised them post-Hillsborough it would be a good idea not to play the video.
