Peterborough United’s London Road End could become a place for cheap seats, if the club’s request to keep a terrace in the Championship fails
Peterborough United will add cheap bolt-on seats to the London Road terrace should the club win promotion to the Championship, if a request to keep a standing area for one more season fails.
Under current EFL rules Posh won’t be able to use a terrace in the second tier, but the club will ask for dispensation due to the financial issues caused by Covid.
“We may as well ask the question,” Posh co-owner Darragh MacAnthony said. “Maybe someone will take pity on us because of the financial hardship all football clubs have suffered.
“Otherwise we will either have to put seats in the London Road End or close it and we can’t afford to do that. We would need as big a capacity as possible in the Championship to maximise revenue from some big gates.
“It’s likely we would put bolt-on, temporary seats at that end. We would try and do it as cheap as possible. We certainly wouldn’t be spending silly money.”
Posh are hoping to move to a brand new stadium on the Embankment in the near future.
