Rail seats can only be used for rugby
12 February ~ Bristol City have become the first UK football club to convert a section of their stadium to safe standing. They have installed rail seats as part of a "demonstration block" at Ashton Gate and, though it cannot currently be used for football matches (as explained in WSC 320, which you can read here), it will be in action during Bristol Rugby games and will serve as an example of the system's benefits in this country. After consultation with all their clubs the Football League last week agreed to lobby the government to change the rules on standing areas at football matches. The Football Supporters' Federation have more information.
