The government announced on Monday that fans can return to football stadiums when the national lockdown finishes on December 2 – and Leeds United fans have reacted to the news on Twitter.

Up to 4,000 fans can return to stadiums as long as they’re not in a high-risk area.

Some Leeds fans are absolutely thrilled with the news, although some are worried that Leeds will be announced as being in Tier 3.

Boris Johnson is set to announce which cities are in which tier on Thursday.

Other fans are wondering how the 4,000 fans will be selected and while there’s been no official news yet, an earlier plan from Leeds was to do it via a ballot.

One fan had a brilliant suggestion saying, “If somehow 2,000 are allowed back into ER, priority should go to whoever attended a game under Dave Hockaday.”

If Leeds is in Tier 1 or 2 it will mean a lot of fans will miss out but just getting any fans back into Elland Road will be incredible. Imagine how much noise 4,000 Leeds fans can make.

One fan said it was the “best news in months!” while another said he was “crying tears of joy”.

Whatever happens, it’s definitely a big step in the right direction and it could end up being the best Christmas present Leeds fans have had.

Here are the best reactions to the major news…
