As you may or may not have seen from other media sources, the results of the Safe Standing Survey, carried out by a number of websites, fanzines and supporters’ groups, have now been published. You can read the full report here, together with the thoughts of CST Chairman Tim Rolls, but the headlines are:-
- Over 96% of Chelsea supporters surveyed are in favour of implementing Safe Standing at Stamford Bridge
- 90% stated they would consider buying match tickets in a Safe Standing area at Stamford Bridge.
- 91% of participants believe the introduction of Safe Standing will improve atmosphere at matches while
- 98% are more likely to attend games at the Bridge or continue their current attendance.
Through its distribution via Chelsea websites, podcasts, fanzines and matchday leafleting the survey elicited 4,329 respondents, 88% of whom are match-going supporters with good representation in all areas of the stadium.
We at TheChels are delighted to have played a part in making what is an important piece of research as widely available among supporters as possible, and will keep readers abreast of any developments.
