Singing Section Success!!!
Sheffield United Football Club found that the singing section against Coventry City last Saturday was a success and is likely to be done again for the last home fixture of the season against Swansea City. Around 80 fans took the opportunity to purchase tickets on the Kop where they were allowed to stand up throughout the game whilst continuing to sing (mainly about Wednesday); it was a huge success and could be rolled out for the final home fixture at Bramall Lane against Swansea City."The singing section made a noticeable difference to the atmosphere inside the ground," said Operations Director Simon Argall."Those fans that took part seemed to enjoy themselves, and we are hoping to meet the organisers this week for a review, and if possible look to do the same again for the final game of the season."It may even be possible that if enough fans support it, for the section to become a permanent feature, although we are aware it is not to everyone's taste and we still have to satisfy the safety authorities. However it is well worth checking out YouTube to see what the Dale chant can sounds like when sung by thousands, "added Simon.The initial idea for the singing section started here on the Blades-Mad message board where united fans got together after failing to be impressed by the lack of atmosphere at Bramall Lane this season.It is hoped that the new singing section will be a pioneer in the safe standing section and possibly one day allow standing terracing back at top sporting venues.
