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.

Supported by: Aldershot TownAston Villa, BarnsleyBrentfordBristol CityBurnleyCardiff CityCrystal PalaceDerby CountyDoncaster RoversExeter CityHull City, Leeds United, Luton TownOldham AthleticPeterborough UnitedPlymouth Argyle, Portsmouth, Reading, Shrewsbury Town, Sunderland, Swansea CitySwindon TownWatfordAFC WimbledonWolverhampton Wanderersthe Scottish Premier League and the Safe Standing Roadshow.

Actions for fans: In past years we've encouraged fans to lobby their MPs and sign petitions (now closed). Both of these actions helped get the issue of safe standing in the national media and in front of politicians. If you'd like to do your bit for safe standing arrange a visit of the Safe Standing Roadshow to your club and a club-specific safe standing survey. Find out more here.

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 now back the Safe Standing Campaign while Football League clubs also voted to "explore" safe standing trials (June 2013).

Email and we'll add you to the volunteers list (please include your club and location). One of the biggest ways you can help safe standing is by persuading your club to back the campaign. How's that done? Each club is different but one option is to build an alliance of fans' groups/fanzines/websites at your club and bring the Safe Standing Roadshow to town - it never fails to impress. Find out how to do that here.
