Please add your name to this petition for Premier League and Championship clubs to be allowed to introduce safe standing areas. Although Charlton is not a Championship club it would not currently be permitted to instal rail seating as it was subject to the Football Spectators Act 1989 when it was in the second tier in 1995.
Sports Minister Tracey Crouch has referred to safe standing campaigners as a "vocal minority". This petition is now well over half way to forcing parliament to hold a debate on the issue.
In a CASTrust survey last October 78% 0f respondents were in favour of introducing a safe standing area at The Valley. This figure increased to 87% for under 25s.
