Government to commission policy review on ‘safe standing’ areas – report

Talks are said to have opened about the issue.

The government is to commission a policy review which could open the door to ‘safe standing’ areas at Premier League and Championship grounds, according to a report.

The Times reports that officials from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport have already begun talks with the Premier League, EFL, and fans’ groups about the issue.

The report states that sports minister Tracey Crouch wants the review to cover all aspects of safety at football stadiums, taking into account advancements in technology and design.

The law on all-seater stadiums was brought in 25 years ago following the Taylor report into the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

In Scotland, Celtic have had a successful trial of a safe-standing area with a capacity of 2,600 over the past two seasons, while the use of ‘rail seats’ has proved a success in the German Bundesliga.

The topic remains a sensitive one because of the Hillsborough disaster and until recently the government had insisted it had no plans to change its position.
