Stretford End Flags is disappointed that due to a delay in satisfying the requirements of the evaluation of the movement of away fans from the SE quadrant to Tier 3 of the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand, it is not possible to implement the proposed Scoreboard Paddock singing section for the 2012/13 season.
Manchester United has been asked for some further detailed analysis to allow them to form a definitive view on the proposals. Unfortunately there is not the time for the Club to do that work, conduct a ST renewal process, submit the proposals for approval and potentially implement the section for the start of next season.
Work has already begun to address the issues raised and the Club hopes to be in a position to make a further announcement at the start of next season.
The Club will keep dialogue going with Stretford End Flags and the other groups involved in this proposal and thanks the fans for their patience. SEF and other groups will now work to esnure that the singing section is in place for the start of the 2013/14 season and that we have the maximum publicity involved in making this a success.
