Burton Albion Football Club are backing the Stand Up For Choice campaign - a joint enterprise undertaken by the EFL and the Football Supporters’ Federation - and are asking supporters to do the same.

The campaign is aimed at giving fans the chance to have their say on whether they would be interested in having the choice between standing and sitting at football matches.

The Pirelli Stadium of course comprises both standing and seating areas and has done since opening its doors in 2005 across four different divisions.

The club wants supporters to be allowed the choice of whether to stand or sit at matches and hopes Brewers fans will put their opinions forward in this survey.

“Having the choice of both standing and seating has been the basis of our fan experience for many years,” said the club’s Commercial Director Fleur Robinson.

“It has proved safe at all levels we have competed in up to the Championship. 

“As a club, we believe both football clubs and supporters should have a choice to be able to provide an environment that suits their unique fanbase’s experiences and values.

“We fully support the Stand Up For Choice campaign and look forward to seeing the results.”

Supporters can take part in the survey, which runs until May 10th, by heading to and casting their vote.

Approximately 18 million supporters make their way through the turnstiles of EFL clubs over the course of a season, and ’Stand up for Choice’ will seek to understand the strength of feeling on this issue. 

Stand up for choice.
