Sunderland: Fans debate whether safe standing should be installed at the Stadium of Light

Sunderland: Fans debate whether safe standing should be installed at the Stadium of Light - Sunderland

A number of Sunderland fans have been discussing the prospect of safe standing being introduced at the Stadium of Light in the future, possibly in response to recent government findings, per the BBC.

The Sports Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) have found that seats with barriers are safer and given there is an appetite for supporters to return to standing, there are a number of UK clubs who could be interested. Some Sunderland supporters feel it is a natural step for the club to take given the number of fans who already stand in certain sections of the stadium.

Of course, there is another factor at play – finances – and whether it would be worthwhile for Stewart Donald or any future owner to make such an investment. Spurs have implemented safe standing in parts of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and that means other top clubs could follow suit, though some Sunderland fans’ views show that not everyone is on board.

The main focus for Black Cats fans seems to be atmosphere, and whether safe standing can improve the noise at the Stadium of Light will likely decide if it is introduced or not.

Here are some of the responses to the question of safe standing.
