1,500 barrier seats to be installed in J Stand at Old Trafford

Manchester United has taken an excellent initiative to enhance the atmosphere of Old Trafford. Manchester United has already announced that they will install 1,500 seats in J stand early next year as they prepare to trial safe standing at Old Trafford. In a recent interview with Stretty News they revealed, TRA is helping a bit in this matter.

Fans are finally allowed to enter the stadium in the Premier League from this weekend. Though the fans of Manchester need to wait a little more as Manchester is in Tier 3 and needs some more time to ease the COVID-19 restriction.

Manchester United has already started taking all the safety measures. All-seater venues were made mandatory in the top divisions of English football since the 1994-95 season as per the recommendations of the Taylor Report on stadium safety after the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.

The local government has given permission to install 1500 barriers as a trial and Manchester United are now working on it.

Operations director of Manchester United, Him Liggett, in a skype interview said, We now have confirmation from the SGSA (Sports Grounds Safety Authority) that we can make arrangements to install circa 1,500 seats with barriers in the J Stand area, as part of the proposed trial.”

“Due to the ongoing impact of Covid and the fact that we are playing matches behind closed doors, the work to install the seats with barriers will commence early in the New Year.”
