Wolves have become the first club in the top two tiers of English football to introduce safe standing practices.
Molineux’s South Bank is fitted with metal bars for the 2019/20 Premier League season.
This is fantastic news and something the pack should greatly anticipate.
Wolves make history with changes to South Bank
Wolves have been able to introduce railed seating thanks to a change in legislation. This comes despite the Championship and Premier League still prohibiting safe standing.
And it’s the lucky members of the South Bank who can look forward to the new railed seating arrangements.
The rowdy South Bank will be able to stand up during every match thanks to metal bars.
With Molineux boasting one of the best atmospheres in the Premier League, Fosun’s implementation of safe standing will only make the stadium a more daunting visit for foes.
The South Bank is already Molineux’s loudest stand, but the rail seating guarantees there won’t be any fans sitting on their hands.
Arena seating company Alderdale Stadia Seating revealed pictures of the first railed seats on Twitter, and you can check them out below.

Only several rows have made the transition to railed seats so far, but the change will impact the whole of the South Bank.
