Scottish Premier League gives green light for standing areas

At a general meeting of the SPL on December 19th 2011, clubs approved changes to SPL rules on safe standing and Unacceptable Conduct.

This gives the SPL Board the ability to approve requests from clubs to pilot safe standing areas for use in Clydesdale Bank Premier League matches.

Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPL, said: “Since I joined the SPL in 2009, there has been widespread support amongst fans to re-introduce safe standing areas. I am delighted that we have been able to respond positively to supporters’ views on improving the match day experience.”
