Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani unhappy to see that tickets have been illegally sold on
Andrea Radrizzani has revealed that Leeds United will be trying to stamp out third party websites buying match tickets and selling them on.
Radrizzani confirmed on his Twitter account that he would be “working with the club management” to find a solution to this situation, which he described as “very disappointing”.
Leeds revealed on their Twitter page that due to an increased demand for tickets for this season, many more tickets have found their way onto illegal third party sites.
Bad news for Leeds and fans!
These third-party sites are known for selling tickets for all events well above the market value, which means that genuine Whites fans could end up forking out huge amounts of money to see their team play.
Last season, Leeds only had one game at Elland Road in front of fans, so it is no surprise to see that the demand for tickets has increased this season as Elland Road is set to return to full capacity.

However, it is a shame that more of these tickets have appeared on third party sites, and it is great to see Radrizzani issue such a strong response about the issue.
The club also revealed in their official statement that the punishments for those found guilty would be severe.
Hopefully, the Whites can crack down on this so Leeds fans can attend games without having to fork over massive amounts of money to people exploiting them.
