Safe standing

So at all seaters like Spurs and now Wolves, do they enforce sitting down in the rail seats? Is standing just allowed for non-football events? Is is strongly stewarded?

Spurs are already looking at banning persistent standers.

Surely the idea of the rail seats is that people will stand...safely. But technically it is still an all seater stadium so complies with the law?

Idve thought maintaining social distancing of 6foot would be a lot easier to do via safe standing, than in an all seater .... as not only would there need to be a two seat space either side of anyone in a seat, theres also the need for at least one empty seat behind and in front of anyone occupying a seat inside a stadium - unless a vaccine is developed, and rolled out, for all, sharpish

I feel it is unlikely we will be attending any football matches until after a vaccine is available.

As regards the vaccine ,if it's a "live" one it will mean that for some high risk people they will not be able to have it which puts a different perspective on it

I feel like the premier league trials mean this is an irreversible acceleration towards standing now and it’ll be hard for any pressure groups to turn the ship around . Very good news

apparently it will be reserved seat rail standing. Which is better than we have which is standing in the same seats anyway.

But the remaining terraces - will they go to rail seating ? So Burton for instance. ?

While they are in league one or lower I doubt it, interesting to see what happens if a club with normal terraces gets promoted to the championship or above and stays a while.

“If” we get a new stadium , to be built in a couple of years. A terrace or a rail seats stand or section ? And we are in the championship …

No way will the authorities allow open terraces in the top 2 divisions.
