With the government website petition having passed 100,000 signatures and a debate on safe standing having been granted as a result, it is now important that MPs understand what, for example, rail seating is all about.

Bringing MPs up to speed

Between now and the day of the debate, 25 June, the roadshow will therefore be going out and about to let as many MPs as possible come along, ask questions and experience for themselves just how safe standing is behind the seats' waist-high rails.

All the roadshow needs is a venue (inside or out) and a host willing to invite local MPs to attend a meeting (in private if preferred) to learn more about this subject ahead of the debate.

So if you're a football club CEO or the chair of a supporters group, or just a passionate supporter of safe standing, if you would like to organise such a meeting, please just get in touch (safe.standing@gmx.com).

There is no charge for this. We simply need to find a mutually convenient date and it's all systems go!

So, if you'd like to help ensure that the MPs in your area are fully up to speed on rail seating ahead of the safe standing debate, please get in touch.
