The Safety at Sports Grounds Act does not apply to Scotland, so there is no legal bar there to safe standing.

Dimitri is right to suggest that cheaper tickets should lead to bigger crowds, but the stadium capacity will not change.

The guy interviewed today on SSN stated that it will be a one-to-one change, with each seat replaced by a safe-standing seat. Remember, each safe-standing place is a seat that can be locked down for seating, or locked up for standing. The Football Club will apply the lock, depending on the rules of the competition, as some competitions allow standing, others do not.

Excellent, not to get it done in England

Isn't it a 1.5 to 1 ratio in Europe?

Three-quarters of Scotland's top-flight clubs told a BBC Scotland survey they would consider summer football.
Nine of the 12 Premiership teams were among the 27 of the country's 42 senior clubs who said they would be in favour of examining the possibility.
Only seven clubs said such a move would not interest them, with eight not offering a view.
The Scottish Professional Football League says it is open to debate on "a complex matter".
Since the BBC conducted the survey, Motherwell have been in touch to say they too are in favour of examining a switch to summer football.
It means that 10 of 12 Premiership clubs and 28 - two-thirds - of all 42 clubs now back such a move.
The questions posed to all clubs were:
Are you in favour of considering a move to summer football?
What would you consider to be the strongest arguments in favour of such a move or retaining the status quo?
While no strict definition was applied to the term "summer football" and several clubs expressed interest in different dates, the overall response indicates an appetite for change.
Not all clubs wanted their stance on the matter to be made public, but Dundee United, Hamilton, Kilmarnock and St Johnstone were among nine top-flight clubs keen to examine the issue further.

Wouldn't mind starting the season earlier in July and having a winter break in January after the Boxing Day or January 1st games but still not keen on the whole summer football idea.
