Leeds United fans are furious with the idea that the club might have to play some of their fixtures at neutral venues once the Championship season resumes.

Times journalist Martyn Ziegler reported on his personal Twitter account on Thursday that “high-risk” Championship fixtures are likely to be moved in order to stop fans from congregating outside stadiums and breaking social-distancing rules.

It is understood that Leeds and West Brom are the most likely clubs to be affected by this with a decision set to be made by clubs and the police.

The Premier League is set to resume on June 17 and, as reported by The Athletic’s Phil Hay, the Championship is not going to be too far behind.

That means that it is more than likely that Leeds will be able to continue their bid to win promotion to the Premier League next month but matches will be played behind closed doors.

It seems that the authorities are concerned that fans will go to stadiums despite not being able to go inside and that has annoyed Leeds supporters, who do not think it’s fair that they should have to play at neutral venues while other clubs can play at home.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

As seen in the Bundesliga so far, home advantage is not really a thing inside empty stadiums but still, we want to see the Whites winning promotion at Elland Road, whether there are fans in there or not.
