Leeds United Supporters Trust share major update on Premier League attendances

Outside of transfers, the one question all Leeds United fans want answering is when will they be allowed back in Elland Road?

The Whites are two weeks away from their first Premier League game in over 16 years, and what a clash to start that campaign.

A trip to Anfield to face Liverpool is followed by fellow promoted side Fulham at Elland Road as the Whites prepare for top-flight football.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the sporting world indefinitely, with test events for fans only just starting up-and-down the country.

Discussions are ongoing, and Angus Kinnear recently had a meeting with the Leeds United Supporters Trust to deliver a crucial update.

“Whilst discussions are continuing at League and Government levels, the club expect the limit to be approximately 25 per cent of capacity for the entire season,” LUST told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“This means that should they use a balloting system as planned (although not confirmed) season ticket holders will be granted access to one in every four games.”

25% seems like nothing at Elland Road, but it is most likely the best we could have hoped for given the drastic circumstances around the globe.

The one-in-four matches for season ticket holders also means that members and other general fans most likely won’t be able to attend any games next season – a real disappointment.

We are edging towards a decision though, with Brighton against Chelsea on Saturday being used as a test event. Sky Sports reported that 2,500 tickets have been made available, let’s cross our fingers that gets us closer to where we want to be.

This means that Leeds and Andrea Radrizzani will need to once again have to come up with some sort of refunding system, with nothing set to be straight forward until the 21/22 season at the least.
