Weekly Football Phrase – Terrace
Our Football Phrase for this week is the word terrace which forms part of a football stadium and is a place where fans stand rather than sit down to watch the game. Nowadays at English Premier League matches all fans must sit down due to safety issues but recently many sets of supporters want to re-introduce a section of the ground where fans can stand to support their team. They feel that not only would this section be cheaper for supporters to see the game but that the atmosphere would be better. They also point to Germany where fans standing on the terraces – usually situated behind the goals – are a big success. The football authorities in England are considering this request so maybe in the near future we will be able to see the return of the terraces to English football. Terrace.
