Leeds United adopts extreme measures and could result in fans losing tickets for the 2024/25 season

Leeds United are having a good season and are one of the favorites to achieve promotion to Premier League. However, despite the team’s satisfactory performance on the field, not everything is rosy. The club’s board identified a problem related to the presence of the public at Elland Road and took extreme measures to resolve it.

Dissatisfied with the empty spaces in the stands at their stadium during games, Leeds determined a new policy on the use of season tickets – those that cover all of the team’s home commitments. The measure provides that ticket holders run the risk of losing their tickets if they do not use them in at least 80% of (championship) commitments at Elland Road.

The club announced last Friday (1) that it will impose the rule from the start of next season, with the aim of combating what it called the “problem” of non-attendance at the stadium. In addition, it announced renewal prices for 2024/25. It is worth noting that Leeds frequently registers maximum capacity at home and has a waiting list (of tickets) for the season of over 20 thousand. Remembering that Elland Road holds 36 thousand fans.

Individual games will take into account the 80% cap if holders attend in person at Elland Road, use the team’s ticket forwarding scheme to allow friends/family to take their seats or place their tickets for resale via the promoted ticket exchange by Leeds itself.

“Despite the huge demand for tickets, season ticket holders not attending games at Elland Road is still a problem as it detracts from our legendary atmosphere, which is vital to the team’s performance. As a result, a new ‘use’ condition will be implemented within our season ticket terms and conditions.

Season ticket holders must attend 80 per cent of home league games at Elland Road or they will not be invited to renew for the following season.”

Leeds United’s current phase

As mentioned above, Leeds United is one of the highlights of the Championship and promises to fight until the end for a place in the 2024/2025 Premier League. With 73 points won, the Whites occupy third place in the competition, behind only Leicester (78) and Ipswich Town (75). In 35 rounds played so far, the team led by coach Daniel Farke won 22, drew seven and lost six. There are 65 goals scored and 28 conceded.

Remembering that the first two placed in the Championship automatically move up to the Premier League, while the clubs that finish the championship between third and sixth place compete in the playoffs. These teams (from third to sixth) face each other in round-trip duels, which lead to the final decided in a single game, at Wembley Stadium. The matches take place in the “third x sixth” and “fourth x fifth” format. The winner of this cross also guarantees a place in the elite of English football.

In addition to the Championship, Leeds also competed in the FA Cup. However, he was eliminated for the Chelsea, last Wednesday (28). In a busy game, valid for the round of 16, the Blues beat the Whites 3-2em Stamford Bridge.
