Leeds United have issued an update about which fans will be allowed back into Elland Road when restrictions are lifted and many fans have been left angered.

In the update, which was posted on Twitter on Tuesday night, it was revealed that: “an allocation of tickets will be reserved for 2020/21 Members for each home league fixture where fans can return at a reduced capacity. The size of the allocation will be dependent on the capacity available.

“All 2020/21 Members will be included in a ballot to gain access to these tickets.”

The number of fans that can be admitted into stadiums currently is 2,000 (Tier 2) and 4,000 (Tier 1).

Leeds is currently in Tier 3 so no fans can currently get into any home games.

Chelsea will have 2,000 fans at Saturday’s game against Leeds at Stamford Bridge.

The Leeds update has left a lot of season ticket holders upset. They think that they should have priority access to the full allocation of tickets available when Elland Road is opened up again.

You can see their point. They’ve spent hundreds of pounds on a season ticket and haven’t been able to get into games since last March.

Even with the increased allocation of 4,000 fans there would be thousands of season-ticket holders left out.

However, Leeds haven’t said how big an allocation will be reserved for members and we think everyone should hold fire until then.

What we will say is that it’s a poor bit of communication from the club that was always going to upset season ticket holders.

These are the fans who have spent a lot of their hard-earned money on supporting the club and they deserve to be kept in the picture by the club first.

Here is a selection of the angry reactions from fans to the official update…
