UEFA permits Arsenal to sell standing tickets for European games

UEFA has decided to allow English fans to stand in stadiums for matches in their men’s competition this season, according to The Daily Mail.

Safe standing is in place in several stadiums in England, Germany and France.

However, clubs cannot use this facility unless it is approved by the head of the competitions they are playing in.

The Premier League has discussed trialling safe standing in stadiums as well, and UEFA will allow it from this campaign.

This means Arsenal can now sell tickets to fans who want to watch their Europa League games while standing at the Emirates in this campaign.

A UEFA statement via the report reads: ‘Football supporters across Europe, as well as clubs who regularly use standing facilities at domestic level, have expressed increasing interest for UEFA to consider standing facilities at European matches.

‘The objective is to assess if and under what conditions standing may be reintroduced in UEFA competitions in a safe manner.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

This decision is positive, and it means Arsenal will have more fans in their stadium, and they will also make more money from ticket sales.

The players will hope the more fans they have in the grounds, the better the support will be, and it will hopefully help them bring trophies back to the Emirates.



  1. Doesn’t apply to Arsenal as we don’t have standing facilities. You need rail seating to do this as spurs have, but we haven’t.

    1. By the way, it doesn’t increase capacity so there won’t be more fans in the ground, please fact check before writing articles.

  2. Hopefully we can get some safe standing set up for next season. Doubt we’ll really see anything this upcoming one unless it’s installed during the WC break.

    Partey stuff…I’m gonna leave that for the authorities. Not up to the public to determine somebody’s guilt unless the man is on trial which he is not.
