Report shares how government nerves could effect potential promotion celebrations for Leeds

The government are nervous about any potential title celebrations that could be held by the likes of Leeds United and Liverpool at the end of this season.

According to the BBC, the government are wary that thousands of fans could show up after the coronavirus lockdown is eased to celebrate should the football be resumed in England.

Leeds haven’t played since their 2-0 victory over Huddersfield, three points that took them back to the top of the Championship above West Brom.

There is the real potential of the Whites returning to the top flight next season and ending their near-two decade wait for Premier League football at Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa is already viewed as a god around West Yorkshire, and there would be thousands of fans on the street should he guide Leeds through the Championship.

The government has already confirmed that games will be behind closed doors once resumed, but it would be hard to stop a plague of fans roaming the streets to celebrate as they can’t exactly restrict it.

It was revealed by the Yorkshire Evening Post on Friday that fans may not be allowed back in stadiums until at least the beginning of October, meaning they could even miss the start of next season.

Either way, the health of the public certainly comes first and fans must remain patient. These restrictions will not matter as long as Leeds finally secure promotion – something that has eluded us for far too long.
