Think of the most exhilarating atmosphere you can imagine inside of a Soccer Stadium. Chances are, you are imagining people jumping and singing and just going absolutely mental. Usually the most lit part of the stadiums are the Standing sections where the most die hard fans watch the games. Unfortunately in the U.K the atmosphere in most stadiums has been lackluster over the last 10 to 15 years because Standing sections have been banned since 1990. As we’ve seen in the MLS and in the Bundesliga, you can have standing sections that are safe for fans and still contribute immensely to the overall atmosphere. We discussed what impact Safe Standing could have in the U.K as well as diving into what standing means to the game of soccer a bit of the history of Safe Standing and why it is such an important topic.
