    LONDON -- The English Premier League is exploring whether fans should be allowed to stand at games again, more than 20 years after stadiums were ordered to be all-seated. Wholesale Celtics Jerseys .It would require a change to the law banning standing areas after the 1989 Hillsborough disaster where 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death in an overcrowded section of the stadium in Sheffield at a FA Cup semifinal.So-called safe-standing has been introduced in Scotland where seats can be flipped up and locked in place, providing space to stand behind a waist-high rail.The Premier League administration is receptive to calls for the standing areas and was asked by its clubs at a meeting on Thursday to look into the feasibility and safety of adopting the rail seats.This is a complex and emotive topic with a number of issues, varying from club to club, which need to be considered carefully before clubs can decide if they wish to pursue any changes, including legislative, that are required to allow them the option of safe standing areas in their grounds, the league said in a statement.The clubs have tasked the Premier League with scoping out the safety, supporter, technical and legislative? issues surrounding safe standing before any further discussions, based on the facts, can take place.Although 27 years have passed since Hillsborough, the ongoing legal battles by the families of the dead fans over the cause of Britains worst sports disaster has slowed the campaign for standing areas. A jury ruled this year that the victims were unlawfully killed and police and emergency services were to blame.Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre declined to comment as he left the London meeting where standing was discussed. West Ham co-owner David Gold acknowledged it was a difficult subject and said there was so much to be done.English Football Association chairman Greg Clarke believes the atmosphere at games would be enhanced if fans could stand.The chances of falling over are much less if there is a rail in front of you, Clarke said. With the issues of Hillsborough they will want to ensure that its going to be safe and well-policed.If football works together on this then we could get a result and the fans would love it.UEFA insists on all-seat stadiums for European games, so any change to the law in England would only allow fans to stand during domestic fixtures.In Germany, there are standing sections, notably at Borussia Dortmund behind a goal where some of the loudest fans are.In France, the national supporters group is lobbying for the return of standing tribunes, arguing that they would improve safety and create a more festive atmosphere. But there is little appetite to relax stadium regulations which were toughened after the Furiani disaster in Corsica in 1992 when one of the terraces collapsed, killing 18 people.---AP Sports Writers Samuel Petrequin in Paris and Nesha Starcevic in Frankfurt, Germany contributed to this report.Rob Harris is at and Celtics Jerseys Outlet .
