Kilmarnock have become the first club in British football to install a safe-standing section for their Under-16 supporters.
According to the BBC, railed seats will be fitted at Rugby Park in mid-September, with the work funded fully by fans, with the £40,000 costs met by the Killie Trust.
There will be 158 adult rail seats in the East Stand as well as 166 for kids in the Family Stand, with the Ayrshire club following Celtic in becoming the second Scottish club to opt for a ‘safe-standing’ option.
The hope is that the modern initiative will attract younger Killie supporters to Rugby Park on a more regular basis, with the side competing in the Europa League next season for the first time since 2001 as well.
Moreover, the trust has also raised enough funds to construct wheelchair platforms to improve the viewing experience for disabled fans – but what do you think of safe-standing and railed-seating?
