London Stadium to trial Wembley barriers to save costs

London Stadium owners E20 have proposed a trial of new lateral barriers to act as a deterrent for pitch invaders in an attempt to improve security and lower stewarding costs.

Director Alan Skewis told the E20 board earlier this year that lateral barriers were already used at Wembley stadium and that the post Burnley and Spurs recommendations had identified that this type of barriers could act as a real deterrent for pitch invaders while saving on steward costs.

He suggested a trial to test the concept and effectiveness before spending further funds to cover teh full 381 metres around the stadium. The 30-metre trial area is proposed to be in front of the lower West Stand in blocks 113 and 114.

No time scales were given in the E20 board minutes recently published on the London Stadium transparency website.

The Chair of E20, Nicky Dunn requested Graham Gilmore speak to Wembley stadium to see if they would recommend the use of these barriers.

  1. That will be where the money for your new bar in block 113 is going then Sean

  2. So they need fans to invade to get an idea uf they work?
    Dont givem the satisfaction, stay standing up in your seats

  3. So stay standing up in your seat is a great idea. I have never such a selfish bullish remark. So when I take my 7 year old Grandson with me he is going to see a lot of the match apart from the back of the person or persons standing in front of him😡
