Singing Areas at the OS?

Postby cockneykeefhallam on Fri Apr 17, 2015 1:43 pm

Dunno if anyones given this any thought. Does anyone have any ideas on where any such 'singing' or 'loud' areas might be in the OS? Love to sit in a noisy part of the new stadium. Thoughts anyone?

Imo best bet would be nearest to where the away fans will be.

STHs won't be allowed near the away support in an effort to sanitise the atmosphere...

Not true, STHs will be near the away supporters in the corner of the 'Kop' side stand.

The away support will be by the West Stand not the East Stand (Kop if you must)...

Can't see the corner of the 'corporate' West being anywhere near lively...

I don't think it is actually if you look at this. http://planningregister.londonlegacy.co ... -36147.pdf it states that for Premier League the 15% zone will be given to away fans which suggests to me it will be on the East side not the West side.

I think they've worded that wrong, if not we'll be offering the away support 8,100 meaning they'll have the entire South Stand and would border both the East and West.

As it is they'll probably have that 5% zone (probably more) but as shown that is closest to the West Stand.

The normal seats by the away (ad opposed to the boxes of course) wont be corporate. Tye boleyn and academy 'premier economy' seats are by the centre circle.

Don't forget due to allocations for cup matches no season tickets will be sold in areas next to the away support.

The Club aren't interested in this so it will be down to fans to organise.

You might be right actually, I hadn't thought that 15% would be 8,100. Will be such a shame if the away fans are put in that corner of the ground specifically.

If you mean Singing Arias at the AS? Quite probably in between the prawn sandwiches.

A 15% allocation normally only applies to FA cup matches I believe.

I thought that as well. Not sure what the official rule is for the Premier League, I think maybe 5% of capacity/3,000 minimum if the away team requires it.

Does anyone know the size of the South stand of the stadium because I imagine away supporters will be allocated (roughly) 50% of it.

15% is just for cup games

man u hold 78k, you don't get 11700 tickets for every game

nearer 4k, about 5%

were only obliged to give around 3k based upon that
