Safe standing is increasing in popularity, and it’s not hard to see why, thanks to the numerous benefits to fans and clubs alike.
At Stadia by GL events, we are proud to be leading the way in providing safe standing solutions that meet and exceed Green Guide regulations. Albeit, our rail seat model, the GL-R, is independently strength tested after every installation, ensuring that it meets the highest safety standards.
Although, why is safe standing such an attractive option for football clubs and their fans? Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of safe standing.
Efficient use of space
Firstly, safe standing in a football stadium provides a more efficient use of space. Therefore, by replacing traditional seating with rail seats, clubs can increase capacity without having to expand their stadium. This can therefore, lead to increased revenue and a better fan experience. This is due to supporters having more space to move around and enjoy the game.
Secondly, safe standing enhances the atmosphere inside the stadium. With fans standing closer together, the noise and energy levels increase, creating a more passionate and exciting atmosphere. In addition, this not only makes for a better experience for fans, but it also helps to motivate the players on the pitch.
Increased spectator safety
Thirdly, safe standing can improve safety. With fans standing securely behind barriers, there is less risk of fans falling and injuring themselves or others. Moreover fans can enter and exit the stands more quickly and efficiently, therefore, reducing the risk of overcrowding and potential incidents.
At Stadia by GL events, we have already installed our safe standing solutions at several Premier League stadiums, including Old Trafford, Anfield, Elland Road, St. James Park, Molineux and Selhurst Park. Likewise, our rail seat model, the GL-R, is a versatile solution that can be installed in both new and existing stadia facilities.
We pride ourselves on standards and providing a safe, bespoke service to each of our clients. Ensuring that we deliver a safe standing solution that is tailored to their specific needs. In addition, we work closely with our clients from the initial consultation and design stage, right through to installation and aftercare, to ensure that they are completely satisfied with the final result.
