That’s great news for Leeds fans, who will be hoping that the regular team of Adam Pope and Noel Whelan will be doing the commentary.
Their commentary is infectious with Whelan a huge Leeds fan.
The Leeds games will also be available to watch on TV, with Sky Sports able to show a maximum of six games between now and the end of the season.
Sky have already announced that the first two Leeds games – against Cardiff (Sunday 21st) and Fulham (Saturday 27th), will both be broadcast.

Any games that Sky Sports don’t show will be available for £10 a match through LUTV.
The good news for Leeds fans is that if they can’t afford £10 they can listen to the game on the BBC.
