Safe seating talks get underway at PL

Gold2David Gold today told the BBC that the Premier League is a little bit further along the road towards safe seating following the chairmens’ meeting today.

DG is a firm advocate of the introduction of such an experiment and told the BBC:  “The Premier League took the first steps today towards safe standing.

But Dan Johnson, the Premier League’s director of communications warned there is a long road ahead.

He said: “It is very early stages. It’s a very emotive subject still. We’re acutely aware of that. A number of our clubs do want to discuss it so it’s on the agenda.

“We will discuss that but beyond that the only thing I can see happening at these early stages is a scoping exercise, talking to interested stakeholders – including fans’ groups and Hillsborough families, but also talking with the government because the legislation is still in place for all-seater stadiums.

“I know it will create discussion but it’s a long road and it might not necessarily lead to the introduction of safe standing.”

  1. I know that I keep banging on about all of the speeling and grammattical (?) mistakes, but why do you keep referring to it as ‘safe seating’? Particularly when you quote the PL bloke as referring to it as ‘safe standing’, which it is, surely?
