Last quote by Amanda Jacks

One of the primary reasons we were always given when we started the debate was 'We can't have another Hillsborough'. We were also told it would deter women and children from attending matches. It was all evidence-free, they were all assumptions. Now we have evidence that standing can be managed safely. How can it be safe for people to stand at Wembley for a concert, or at rugby, but not for football fans? Most importantly it is about choice. From our surveys 85% would like to have the choice of sitting or standing to watch their teams.feedback
