Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have expressed their satisfaction after news broke stating that their fans could be allowed to stand during matches this season.
It added that the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA) invited clubs to apply to take part in the safe standing pilot. Tottenham, as well as Wolves, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Cardiff City and Bristol City, are said to have stadiums that can easily accommodate the safe standing areas.
Do you think fans should be able to stand during Tottenham matches?
The news was shared online and it didn’t take long before a number of Spurs fans were discussing what this could mean for their club.
Here’s what these Tottenham supporters said…
“This could actually bring me back to going to games religiously #COYS now we just need a new owner then we’re cooking!”
Standing at matches being played in England’s top two divisions was banned as a consequence of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.
However, over the years, campaigners have attempted to get the law overturned to allow people to stand and watch matches safely.
It seems that many of these Spurs fans are excited at the prospect of being able to watch their club again without the current restrictions.
