Fans of Chelsea and Sunderland will have the chance to see first hand what "rail seats" are all about when the Safe Standing Roadshow visits west London later this month - if you're going to the game, pay the Roadshow a visit.
Fanzine cfcuk and FSF affiliates the Chelsea Supporters Trust have joined forces to arrange a visit before Chelsea v Sunderland match on Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th April. The date is dependent upon whether Chelsea progress in the Champions League.
The Roadshow (left, at Wolves) enables supporters to inspect a section of rail seats, a system that would enable blocks of seating to be easily converted into standing areas within football stadiums. This means top-flight clubs can host domestic games with standing areas and European fixtures in seated mode. UEFA demands all-seater accomodation for its competitions.
Both sets of fans are welcome to come and see the Roadshow which will be adjacent to the cfcuk Chelsea fanzine stall, opposite the shopping entrance to the Fulham Broadway Underground station on the Fulham Rd from noon onwards.
