Safe Standing At A New Ground For City?

Could Coventry City be joining the growing number of clubs in this country who support the principle of safe standing at matches.

The likes of  Aldershot Town, Aston Villa, Barnsley, Brentford, Bristol City, Burnley, Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers, Exeter City, Hull City, Leeds United, Luton Town, Oldham Athletic, Peterborough United, Plymouth Argyle, Portsmouth, Shrewsbury Town, Sunderland, Swansea City, Swindon Town, Watford, AFC Wimbledon, Wolverhampton Wanderers, are aready supporting the campaign launched by the Football Supporters Federation for the introduction of safe standing areas which are common in many stadium abroad and now if comments to a City supporter from City's CEO are to be believed then any new stadium built by SISU may contain a safe standing area.

The tweet from City supporter "The Coventry" describing a conversation with Mr Fisher is as follows: 

The Coventry @The_Coventry

Tim Fisher says plans on new ground announced soon. Fans involved the whole way. Looking at Dortmund style terracing too (temp seats).
