Picture shares significant progress on Leeds upgrades at Elland Road

Leeds United are continuing to climatise to the Premier League as they look to make it a long stay in the top flight.

The Whites were required to make a number of upgrades at Elland Road to get up to Premier League standards, and Andrea Radrizzani continues to do just that.

The media facilities, floodlights and broadcasting complex were just three of the things that needed to be worked on this year.

A picture on Twitter by Rob Smith has highlighted the significant changes taking place in West Yorkshire as the season progresses.

Regarding the floodlights, Leeds are building substantial metal structures for those to stand outside the West Stand and on to the pitch.

This is the last thing we expected.

Many thought that Leeds would just upgrade the current floodlights that are actually attached to the stand, but instead, they have gone for broke.

There is this one located where the players park their cars, and there is also one in corner of the ticket office, as the Whites add two new floodlight structures.

When could we see this?

Fans aren’t returning to Elland Road until Christmas at the earliest, but games against West Ham and Newcastle will both be shown live on Sky.

Jon Howe reported that this upgrade was set to be completed before the Arsenal game, but a delay was suffered due to delivery issues from China.

It was suggested then that the upgrades should be complete for the game against the Hammers, so that should be our first taste.

The East Stand was completed before the Leicester defeat, so we look forward to seeing the final product next week.
