Meeting held on safe standing at Sixfields

15th Nov 2016

Northampton Town Football Club, Northampton Town Supporters’ Trust and the Standing at Sixfields Group held a positive meeting about safe standing at Sixfields yesterday.

The meeting discussed the various options that could be explored, and to discuss an online survey that will be carried out to gather the views of supporters.

Safe standing expert Jon Darch was also present at the meeting to offer advice and guidance.

Trust board member James Averill said: “The group discussed the various scenarios as to where a standing section could be implemented at Sixfields, and what kind of standing section it would be.

“Before any plans are taken further, it was agreed that we would introduce an online survey to get as much information as we can.

“This will explore whether there is a desire to see a safe standing section, but crucially as to whether people would actually use it if it was there.”

The survey is due to go live on Monday November 28, and run until Friday January 6, although this is subject to change. More details will be announced in due course.
