Could Premier League Clubs Take A (Safe) Stand?

Shrewsbury Town have become the first team with an all seater stadium to apply for safe standing to be introduced at their ground and William Hill are offering 6/4 that at least one Premier League side has introduced it to their stadium before the end of the 2019/20 season.

“There seems to be a real appetite for safe standing to be introduced and with Shrewsbury Town setting the ball rolling, there could be a number of clubs wanting to do the same,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “This could well lead to the FA easing their stance on top flight clubs introducing it and top flight safe standing could be just around the corner.”

Will a Premier League club introduce safe standing before the end of the 19/20 season: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no
