What is this campaign about?

  • This is the campaign to install the first "safe standing area" in England or Wales, creating a showcase for safe standing that will help to bring forward its introduction at other clubs.

"This is an important step on the journey towards our stated aim of seeing standing in stadiums across the EFL. The installation of standing accommodation will prove a valuable opportunity to assess the use of this form of accommodation at an English football ground"
EFL CEO Shaun Harvey
"I think it’s going to be fantastic. It does make you proud to be part of the club that’s going to make history in English football. If the fans want it, they should be able to have it. And if it makes them sing louder and support us more on the pitch, that’s great for us players too."
STFC Club Captain Mat Sadler

FSF
"The Football Supporters Federation has been pushing the safe standing cause since the beginning. We are very excited to see the first club getting close to installing rail seats and we will be supporting this crowdfunding campaign every step of the way"
FSF CEO Kevin Miles
"Here at Borussia Dortmund standing has always been an integral part of the fan culture. As part of this, we have had rail seats at our stadium for many years now and we are delighted to be able to play our own small part in helping the fans of Shrewsbury Town bring rail seating to England. We wish them every success with this pioneering project."
BVB Borussia Dortmund CEO Aki Watzke

The safe standing section and rail seats

  • The key benefit of bringing a safe standing section to the Montgomery Waters Meadow Stadium is improved choice for fans, as supporters who want to stand will be allowed to do so in a safe, designated area, while those wanting to sit will not have people standing in front of them.
  • We also expect the standing area to increase the noise and atmosphere in the stadium. The safe standing section will be installed at the back of the Salop Leisure South Stand, from Row T down to Row P, across the full width of the stand. This area has been chosen (i) in order to satisfy the estimated initial demand for standing spaces, and (ii) to ensure that the designated standing area does not cause any sightline obstructions for seated supporters, as would be the case in Blocks 18 and 19.
  • Rail seating provides a full, interlocked waist-high barrier across its full length, to avoid the risk of falling forward as can happen when fans stand behind regular seats. These seats can be locked in the closed position (as in the picture), or lowered for use during seated events such as concerts or European football games. The seats will be supplied by Ferco Seating, based locally in Shrewsbury, who also installed the rail seats at Celtic Park.
