Safe Standing- Government seeking advice on laws to review

A message from the Football Supporters Federation.

The new coalition government has pledged to scrap unnecessary and “nannying” laws. We believe that the ban on standing at football grounds in the top two divisions is just this. In England and Wales, you can stand in rugby grounds, at Speedway events, at Horse racing events, even lower league football grounds. We don’t believe the top football clubs should be singled out and treated differently.

If you agree you can now say so on the Governments new “Your Freedom” website, by visiting
http://yourfreedom.hmg.gov.uk/cutting-business-and-third-sector-regulations/remove-requirement-for-top-level-football-grounds-to-be-all-seated

Please support our motion and (especially important) add some brief comments. You need to register to do so, but it takes literally two minutes and would help our campaign massively.

Bear in mind that for the first time we have a party in government (the Lib Dems) who support Safe Standing as official party policy, so the Your Freedom website gives us a great opportunity to press our case. If our motion becomes one of the most popular, then this greatly helps our aim to turn that support into government policy. We need YOUR support for this to happen.
