Football fans could be allowed to drink alcohol in STANDS in the near future following a fan-led government review.
Supporters haven’t been allowed to enjoy booze while watching football since 1985 but a change in the rules is to be recommended.
According to The Times, ex-sport minister and Conservative MP Tracey Crouch has completed an independent review of the matter.
She is set to push for a pilot on serving alcohol at clubs in the National League and League Two with a view to extending it to a higher level.
British football’s 36-year ban on alcohol being drank in stands was introduced in a bid to battle hooliganism.
Other top European leagues allow supporters to enjoy a pint in their seats while they watch the action unfold.
There is also no such ban in other British sports, such as cricket and rugby.
