Wolves first Premier League club to install potential safe standing options

Molineux, the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves are showcasing safe standing options at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have installed variations of safe standing at their Molineux stadium to show how the designs could work.

The Premier League club have installed rail seats and seats with separate barriers in a currently unused area and will install an area of barriers in front of existing seats.

They want to demonstrate to supporters and local safety authorities how the options could work in matchday situations.

"As a club we are keen to be at the forefront of innovation and progression, so the opportunity to install these examples of potential safe-standing solutions was one we were very happy to explore," Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple told Press Association Sport.

"Whilst the seats themselves will not be operational or used at matches, we are now able to give our Fans' Parliament and local authority the opportunity to view all the options before some of these solutions become commonplace in UK stadiums."

The government is reviewing the legislation making grounds in the top two divisions all-seater, which was introduced in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

In August, the Football Association officially endorsed the concept of introducing safe standing areas in all-seater English football stadiums.

Tottenham have installed 7,500 seats with a safety barrier in front of them at their new stadium, meaning the seats can be left up to create a standing area if one becomes permitted.

Designs for Everton's proposed new stadium also include the option of standing areas, while Manchester City have considered the potential introduction of similar ideas at their Etihad Stadium.
