The Premier League and EFL have supported the idea with the FA now on board.

A spokesperson said: "The FA supported the announcement from Sports Minister Tracey Crouch in June to conduct an 'external analysis of evidence in relation to the all-seater policy' and supports clubs and leagues in having the option to choose whether they wish to provide standing options for supporters should there be clear evidence that satisfies the authorities over safety and security."

Standing in English football's top two divisions was prohibited by the Football Spectators' Act in 1989 as a result of the Hillsborough tragedy.

An official verdict is expected on Thursday.
