Safe standing Kop
 
With talk of the gateway scheme for the town involving a new Kop end stand being built , do we know if it’s expected to be all seater or is there the possibility of a safe standing area ? I realise a big part of the plans would be the expectation of more Welsh internationals, albeit more likely to be friendlies , so that may have a deciding factor. I do miss standing on that terrace :(

Still dont see understand the fascination with all seater stadiums. I'd far rather stand personally. I cant believe a new kop terrace and roof would be that expensive. Maybe this is what WST should now oncentrate on and fundraise for? I understand that ze germans allow standing zones in ze Bundesliga nowadays.

I think the slops have safe standing area in their new ground which was of course built as an all seater ground originally

Would like to see a safe standing bottom tier and seated top tier.

We'd be the first in Wales with safe standing. The likes of Ken Skates and Spencer Harris would be all over that.

I think it'll happen.

Don't care - it can stay empty as long as i can watch league football again at the racecourse

The SGSA have completed a study and believe it can improve crowd safety but currently only seated areas count for international capacity.

Does safe standing actually increase ground capacity? if it doesn't, what's the point?

It would for lower divisions and is being considered for top 2 divisions but banned at the minute.
