Former Borussia Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp once described entering the pitch to the clamor of fans on Europe's biggest standing tribune at the club's Signal Iduna stadium as "like being born".Instead, standing areas have been redesigned to make them safer while allowing fans to create a vibrant atmosphere.There are several varieties of safe standing where terraces can quickly be converted to seats for European club matches.Rail seats are widely used in the German Bundesliga. Other varieties include clip-on seats, where terrace steps have metal clips that seats can be attached to and removed from, and fold-away seats, which can be slipped under aluminium steps.Global football's governing body FIFA said it would not change its stance and all matches in its competitions, including the World Cup qualifiers, would have to take place in all-seater stadiums.Spain's La Liga does not allow standing and fans seem content simply to ignore the rules – something which standing's supporters say happens elsewhere.
