Don't know if you've missed any but Shrewsbury are aiming to become an addition to that list before the end of the season: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41650543

It's not 'proper' terracing though...

It was 3 years but that was in the days when Vale Park hosted second tier football so maybe things have changed.

The only other one I can think of is Plymouth Argyle who still have the standing areas but they haven't used them for at least 10 years.

I think it's 2 years - didn't Scunthorpe have a bit of a run where they kept getting relegated from the Championship in year two so that they didn't need to convert their terracing?

Brentford get an exception because of their plans for a new stadium but presumably Burton will have to convert their terracing to seats if they stay up again this season.

Is that why you lost to them last Saturday?

Our starting eleven could have sat in the stand and we wouldn't have noticed.

Shrewsbury Town's new safe standing was opened on Tuesday by the Mayor of Shrewsbury.

It consists of 555 rail seats in the Salop Leisure stand, spanning the top five rows across the length of the home end behind the goal.

According to the newspaper I read this in, the rail seating is set to remain for at least three years. I presume this is dependent upon Shrewsbury Town winning promotion to the Championship (they're in the League One play-off final this weekend) - if they win promotion and stay up, I guess they may have to convert back to all-seating in three years time (presuming that FL rulings don't change).

No need to convert back, supporters would just use the seats as normal seats.

Indeed, just lock them in the down position. Although it's not an issue now.

Will fans pay the same amount to stand as they would to sit as presumably the capacity remains the same so the clubs are unlikely to drop their prices?

Locking seats in a down position would be a safety issue. The difference between seating and safe standing are the barriers along each row. Stadiums in the top 2 tiers at the moment are probably more dangerous in their current all seater state with no barriers along each row.

So if you lock a rail seat down it's dangerous? That is how rail seats work. How are they safe then if they are dangerous when they are a seat?

When stadia with these installed play a European game the rail seats are locked into position, if they didn't it would still be a terrace.

Probably a daft question but am I right in thinking that, when you stand up to get out of your seat (say, to let someone past), the seat doesn't flip up but stays in the locked position? If so, must be a bit of a squeeze.

Incidentally, following their promotion, we can now add Macclesfield to the list of EFL clubs with terracing.

Rail seats are not locked in the down position, they are just like any normal seats. This, of course, means that people will still stand even if the match is designated "all seating", just as some do at every match in all-seater stadia. The difference is that the rails make the standing safer.

Other options are in use in Germany, as explained here http://www.fsf.org.uk/...-standing-look-like/

Thanks Mick - how ingeniously simple that is, though looks like the handrails could get in the way of your line of sight when sitting down.

Easily understandable why people want to stand at football matches but, by marshalling people to stand in single file (albeit safely), I wonder if this will really help recapture the atmosphere at stadia that those people feel has been lost. Or if it's such a pale imitation of the 'standing experience' that it just won't catch on.

The idea behind safe standing is each person stands where there is a seat, meaning there is sufficient space between each person to create a safe zone. In the old days of terrace standing you just wedge yourself in, I've been at games where my feet weren't touching the ground (happy memories). With safe standing the barriers along each row stop the surge from behind should anyone fall forward, the barriers should prevent someone falling to the next row pushing that person forward and so on. How stewards control fans making sure that only one person stands in a designated standing space is another matter.

Re: [Tykeoldboy] Standing/terracing at the 92 league grounds [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Think I read somewhere that German "safe standing" is on a ratio of 3 standing spectators for every 2 seats. So every spectator still gets their designated area, but there are just slightly more of them.



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
