A Queens Park Rangers survey into the potential installation of rail seating at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium has delivered an overwhelmingly positive verdict for it to be potentially installed in the lower tier of the Loftus Road stand.
It’s been confirmed in recent weeks that clubs can start planning and putting together proposals for a return of safe standing in the Premier League and Championship, something that fans have been wanting a return of for some time.
Indeed, clubs that wish to try and bring in the rail seating have been consulting their supporters over whether they would like it at their stadium and, from that, where they would like it to be placed, with Hoops fans majorly in the same frame of mind when it comes to the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium.
As per the QPR website, 88.01% of surveyed fans were behind the idea and said they felt it would improve the atmosphere further on matchdays in W12, whilst 74.13% of respondents said the best place for the rail seating would be the lower tier of the Loftus Road stand.
Safe standing has been in the psyche of English football supporters for some time with many longing for the ability to be able to stand and watch their team at the top levels of English football.
We do seem to be closing in on rail seating and safe standing becoming a reality in the top two tiers of English football in this country, then, and it looks as though QPR have now got a very good idea of where they’re going to be putting theirs, should they press ahead.
