The campaign to introduce safe standing areas in the Premier League has taken another move in the right direction as more clubs have added their support.

Both Swansea and Wolves have added their names to the fifteen other English clubs including Aston Villa, who have offered to trial safe standing areas in their grounds. The Scottish Premier League has also wholeheartedly backed the campaign.

Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins;

“We would be happy to work with the relevant bodies to look at whether this is something that could be implemented by Swansea City. It would require consultation through our fans (through the Supporters’ Trust) but we are happy to support the overall approach and are happy to see if this is something that could be trialled at our stadium”.

Swansea’s support follows the recent Parliamentary showcase ‘The Case For Safe Standing in Football’. The events was attended by MPs, journalists and football industry figures including representatives from Swansea City.

Wolves Chief Executive, Jez Moxey;

“An appropriate trial of safe standing would help ensure a robust and evidence based debate could take place.  We therefore support the Football Supporters’ Federation’s call on Government to give permission for a limited trial or a pilot scheme to take place”.
