How Newcastle United safe standing capacity compares with Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea and Premier League rivals

A section of St James’ Park will be converted into safe standing spaces, as per fan requests, at the start of the 2023/24 season.

Newcastle United have confirmed that safe standing will be installed at St James' Park next season after listening to fan opinions.

The cathedral on the hill will be the latest stadium in the UK to run a trial with the rail-fronted seating after a number of Premier League rivals have seen success with safe standing.

A Newcastle United statement read: "The trial follows a supporter consultation process, during which more than 4,000 fans responded to an online survey - with 70 fans attending a subsequent working group session at St. James' Park to provide more detailed feedback.

"Of those surveyed online, 75 per cent were in favour of licensed standing being introduced at St. James' Park - with the South East Corner and Gallowgate End identified as the preferred location by more than 70 per cent of respondents.

"The club has also continued to monitor existing trials at other stadiums in England, with licensed standing areas successfully installed and safely managed at Wembley and a number of Premier League grounds with the support of the Sports Ground Safety Authority (SGSA)."
