Fans of West Ham United have been discussing whether or not they would like the London Stadium to have a safe standing area.

After the question was posed to supporters by West Ham Gossip over whether safe standing would be a good idea, some supporters backed it wholeheartedly.

Do you think safe standing would be a good idea in the London Stadium?

Yes, would massively improve the atmosphere

No, wouldn't make any difference in atmosphere

In 2018, Shrewsbury Town of League One became the first club in England and Wales to introduce safe standing with rail seats (as per The Guardian).

However, while some supporters felt that introducing safe standing to West Ham’s Stadium would be a good move, other fans felt that it would be a wasted effort at the London Stadium.

What do we think?

While there has been much fury from supporters surrounding the London Stadium (per The Guardian), perhaps safe standing could be the answer to some of the problems.

However, it seems as though fans are split down the middle over this one, so, it may just be better to leave the stadium as it currently is.
