On 15th October 2012 Roger Godsiff MP tabled Early Day Motion 573 which called for the introduction of pilot safe standing areas in the Premier League and Championship. 67 MPs eventually signed EDM 573, which is now closed.
The Football Supporters’ Federation rallied hundreds of supporters to contact their MPs in support of EDM 573 and organised The Case for Safe Standing in Parliament on Tuesday 11th December 2012. The event received widespread national media attention.
The Safe Standing Campaign has the support of dozens of clubs and significant football figures. Find out more about the campaign here and keep up-to-date with the latest news via www.fsf.org.uk, Twitter @The_FSF or the FSF's Facebook page.
