AIUI (which may not be entirely accurate), we had to get some in to the home end asap in order for the rail in the Milton End to be used due to a rule, somewhere.Surprised they haven’t given more, at least half to the Fratton End? Surely there’s appetite for it
There's a load more going in to the Fratton End - I think during an international break in October; I believe it will be about half way down. The rationale from the club is that Safety Advisory Groups are starting to get hotter on persistent standing in seated areas and are likely to start reducing capacities where this isn't addressed, so the club has bitten the bullet (something like 5/6 times more expensive to install one rail seat compared to a normal one).
Cheers - good to hear on the food/queues. There's a temporary control box in operation on the south side of the stand - which will be permanently located on the other side once that has been rebuilt. I think some of that space is down to be converted to additional toilets, although I guess space is limited.There were plenty of windows serving food, and no queues. There were limited toilet facilities, but I've no idea if there was another set further along the back of the stand. Plenty of legroom when you sat down.
