Safe Standing Campaign

Safe Standing Campaign aims: To persuade the Government, football authorities and football clubs to accept the case for introducing, on a trial basis, limited sections of standing areas at selected grounds in the stadiums of Premier League and Championship football clubs.

How can I help? In past years we've encouraged fans to lobby MPs and sign petitions which helped get the issue in the national media and in front of politicians. If you'd like to help email safestanding@fsf.org.uk and we'll add you to the volunteers list (include club/location). Actions vary from club-to-club, some are already supportive, but options include club-specific surveys or organising a visit from the Safe Standing Roadshow to your club.

Background

The FSF's Safe Standing Campaign has, at various times, used public facing petitions and Parliamentary events and Early Day Motions to highlight the case for safe standing to the authorities, clubs and politicians.

Dozens of clubs support the Safe Standing Campaign and the Football League backed safe standing in February 2014. Support from the political world is growing too - the Welsh Assembly gave their support in July 2014 and safe standing is in the Liberal Democrats 2015 manifesto.
