December 2013. Even before obtaining responses from groups from all clubs, BBC Radio One's Newsbeat programme reported that supporters' groups from more than half of all Premier League clubs say they would like the option to stand at football.

BBC Radio One Newsbeat join us at VfL Wolfsburg

The report was backed up by photos and video produced by reporter Ben Mundy when we arranged for him to meet us at VfL Wolfsburg a few weeks earlier. With SLO Holger Ballwanz, press officer André Hahn and stadium manager Thomas Franke playing great hosts, Ben was shown around the stadium and the rail seating area behind the goal for the home fans.

In that area, bathed in bright sunshine, he filmed a piece with Thomas that explains very nicely in little more than a minute just how safe standing at rail seats works and why Thomas would recommend it for grounds in the UK.
