Safe Standing petition

The PST believe football fans at all levels of the game should have the choice to stand or sit at football grounds and as such are fully supportive of West Bromwich Albion’s application to install more than 3,000 rail seats in the Smethwick End at the Hawthorns.

Unfortunately their application was rejected by the Sports Minister Tracey Crouch. Compounding the disappointment of the decision, Crouch said that she wanted to see current regulations, prohibiting persistent standing, more strictly enforced and labelled those campaigning for change to the legislation a “vocal minority”!

Her comments have caused a backlash from supporters and even the Football Safety Officers Association (FSOA) have publicly criticised the Government’s stance on the issue, claiming a pilot at West Brom would be a “perfect opportunity to gather much-needed data” on rail seating.

The PST are backing this petition and hope you will sign this petition.
