'So much to sort' - BBC journalist responds to fan question on Leeds season ticket refunds

Leeds United fans have started to question whether or not their season ticket money will be refunded this season after the enforced break.

The EFL has confirmed that they want to conclude the final nine games of the Championship season but behind closed doors – meaning fans will miss five outings at Elland Road.

On top of that, the Yorkshire Evening Post confirmed that fans could not be allowed back in the stadium until October meaning it could go into next season as well.

A fan recently questioned BBC journalist Adam Pope and asked whether refunds would be on the table, something he explained would not be so straight forward.

“Mate, so much to sort if they go down that route,” he replied on his personal Twitter account.

“Let’s hope not.”

As Pope said, there would be so many things to sort out if Andrea Radrizzani went down that route – one fan in the responses even claimed it could cripple the club financially if they did.

Right now, the main importance is making sure the club remains sustainable with players and staff already having taken wage deferrals to help with just that.

Leeds have already sold over 16,000 season tickets for next season, in which has been described as a massive windfall to help the club stay afloat according to Football Insider.

It wouldn’t make sense for the club to secure that windfall and then refund the fans as it would just add to the losses enforced by the coronavirus and we shouldn’t expect it anytime soon.
