#2

Bet it gets refused. But I hope it doesnt.


#3

All away ends should be safe standing anyway tbh.


#4

AFC Wimbledon have got terraces, I’ve stood on them several times. Am I missing something here?


#5

The only thing missing would be a crowd.
The away support at a Wimbledon match probably all come in the same car :grinning:


#6

The all seater rule only applies to top two divisions and stadiums built after a certain date.


#7

What’s that certain date? I tried looking but couldn’t find the answer withing 5 minutes lol


#8

It’s in the article :smile:

Shrewsbury’s Greenhous Meadow is 10 years old so is not governed by the all-seater stadiums legislation which permits clubs in Leagues One and Two to keep terraces that existed before 1994.

Although it’s terraces as opposed to stadiums so I got it slightly wrong.

I guess reading the OP in full might have helped haha
