I got this email over the weekend.


Hi



As someone who has supported my work as the Shadow Sports Minister to improve the fan experience at football matches - I wanted to write to you about Safe Standing.

Last Thursday, the Government published their Safe Standing review. Despite Safe Standing being implemented safely in multiple leagues across the world, such as in Germany, Scotland and the USA, the review has concluded that more evidence is still required.

By rejecting the introduction of Safe Standing, the Government are disgracefully ignoring the clear demand by fans, supporters' groups and football clubs.

The EFL’s own survey concluded overwhelmingly that fans across the country would favour the option to stand safely at football matches – and now the Government are continuing to wilfully disregard the clear demand from the 94% of fans who would welcome the implementation of Safe Standing.

So I am confirming today, that if Labour return to Government in coming months we would overturn the all-seater policy. We would allow the introduction of Safe Standing areas for all clubs in the Premier League and EFL for the 2020/21 season.

I want to make it clear to the Government that fans cannot continue to be ignored - please help me by sharing your views on social media.
