Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham have ‘future proofed’ some areas of the new £800million stadium with safe standing seats, basis images from a Twitter user (h/t Telegraph).

The report from the Telegraph claims that some areas of the 17,500 single tier South Stand is being future proofed. Further, some sections of the visitor’s area are also being proofed for safe standing.

German clubs feature a rail seating but the report adds that Spurs have created a different option, which provides greater comfort to the fans.

The report further claims that season ticket holders have been made aware of possible future safe standing areas when purchasing tickets within the proofed zones.

Executive director Donna-Maria Cullen was quoted by the Telegraph as saying:

“As a club, we did not engage on this until the Hillsborough Inquiry was concluded, which showed that the tragedy in April 1989 had not been caused by standing.

“We then conducted research with our fan base which showed overwhelming support for safe-standing. The main reasons given were choice and atmosphere – fans cannot sing sitting down.”

This is a great step into bringing safe standing to the Premier League and it will be interesting to see when the clubs introduce them.
