Leeds United will be upset to see that the area will stay in Tier 3 despite rumours earlier this week suggesting the area might move into Tier 2. This means that Elland Road will still not welcome any supporters.
The latest on the news around Leeds
The Premier League agreed that teams would be allowed 2,000 fans if they were based in locations that are in Tier 2.
It is easy for cities across the country to change tier, and Leeds hopes of changing were ended following Matt Hancock speaking in Parliament recently. Chief football writer at the Yorkshire Evening Post, Graham Smyth, delivered the sad news to fans on Twitter as he shared: “Leeds remains in Tier 3.”
This is a big blow for Leeds
Emphatic victories like the 5-2 win against Newcastle United at Elland Road midweek would have been special moments for the club to share with their supporters. It is gutting that the club can’t celebrate these moments with their fans as things stand.
The Whites have also not been able to enjoy the advantages that come with having fans in the stadium, as some other teams have.
One would expect the 2,000 fans allowed back into the ground, if and when it happens, to make an incredible atmosphere, but the fact that could still be some time away is a big blow for the club.
