Why clubs should consider installing rail seats… No. 9

9. It saves club money on seat repairs and maintenance.

Some Premier League clubs currently have to replace 300 or more broken plastic seats after every match.

Many of these are no doubt damaged in areas where fans regularly stand. This incurs not only the capital cost of buying replacement seats, but also the ongoing cost of employing maintenance staff to remove the damaged seats and fit new ones.

The proposed heavy duty, 100% metal rail seats would eliminate this cost altogether.
