    If you believe that the Government should allow safe standing in football stadiums in England & Wales, please sign the petition below and contact your local MP asking for their support.

    (Your MP's name) @
    House of Commons, London, SW1A 0A

    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/207040 (You have to be a UK Citizen or resident to sign the petition)

    Please share the message via your social media contacts. The number of signatures went from 13,000 on Thursday 12th, to 42,000 Friday afternoon and is rising, nearly 57,000 (17th), 66000 (18th).....
    Thanks to all who have signed so far.
    I have locked the thread, any debate can be continued in the existing safe standing thread.

    Surprised how relatively few signatories there have been on this. If safe standing is important to you please take a few moments to sign the petition.

    Down in the tube station at midnight.
    Bit disappointed to read the PL have said that only 5% of match going fans want to stand. Firstly, i don't believe that and, secondly, I bet a lot of non-match going fans would love to stand as they have been priced out of attending.

    Also please sign if you like to sit down and don't like people standing in front of you!

    Posted before on a different thread - the interactive heat map is interesting (link on petition page below the signature count)...

    Signed.

    Less than 30 000 needed now to trigger a debate in parliament, but we only have 50 days left to reach that target.
