Safe Standing Choice of Audience


Standing during football matches has been a craze for long but not many stadiums permit this. It was the Bangor City that took the credit of introducing safe standing. Supporters were not permitted to stand during the match in European or international matches. So the club decided to provide rail seating also called safe standing. A road show was conducted to showcase the advantages of safe standing by John Darch belonging to the Safe Standing Roadshow. He said that safe standing gives a unique opportunity to the audience that want to watch the match standing. The safe standing area can offer the advantage of watching the match from a occupied the terrace that can be converted into a seating area if needed. There is no doubt that this could offer a greater choice for the spectator.

Since football fans wish to stand and watch the match, they should be provided the choice to enjoy the game better. A Liberal Democrat Assembly Member, Aled Roberts for North Wales said that Welsh Assembly must legislate on stadium safety and be the pioneer in promoting safe standing. It is also felt that adding safe standing following the goals can prove to be a ripe chance for the team. Safe standing can prove beneficial for stands when big matches are conducted. Bangor City will soon turn out to be the first football club in Britain to establish safe standing on their ground. The Book People Stadium located in Nantporth is a new stadium that has conducted Europa League matches and other international matches.
