49ers new ticketing system getting mixed reviews

Leeds United have announced that they are introducing a new ticketing system that will see season ticket holders at risk of losing their seats unless they attend at least 80% of league matches at Elland Road. The 49ers announced their controversial plan, at the same time they made public their renewal prices for the 24/25 season, and it's received mixed reviews from the Elland faithful.

Due to work commitments, or living outside of Yorkshire, some fans are unable to get to every match, especially the midweek ones. Many die hard Whites have have the same seats for years, and the risk of losing them has caused anger and resentment. Others see it as a positive step, with more fans able to watch their team in action, whilst shortening the waiting list.

Is Joseph next in line after Bamford

Mateo Joseph's brace against Chelsea last month may have moved the 20yo up the pecking order, ahead of Joel Piroe. Leeds had to fend off offers from a host of clubs in order to land Piroe last Summer, finally capturing the Dutchman for a hefty £12m. He is Leeds joint second top scorer with 11 goals, but has faded into obscurity in 2024. His lack of pace gave Daniel Farke cause for concern, and switched him to a deeper role.

Creatively speaking, it was always going to be difficult to dislodge Rutter from the team, so Farke tried a role reversal which saw the Frenchman leading the line, and Piroe at 10, but that didn't work either. Bamford's re-emergence from oblivion saw Piroe dropped to the bench, and since then his performances have just got worse. As well as a fresh pair of legs, Joseph's rapid rise up the ladder couldn't have come at a better time. Good strikers are hard to find, and Joseph not only has a natural ability to score, but due to his age can put himself about a lot more than Bamford, who can be static at times.

I believe they are attempting to fleece our fans, just give us our refund, not try to hide it in small print.

LUFC are like any other big organisation, who show no loyalty to their customers.

I'm ditching EE when my mobile contract expires in the next few months, as they ripped me off!
I’m on Talkmobile, owned by Vodafone, uses that network, unlimited calls & texts, 70gb data and 30 day rolling contract, £9.95/ month. Worth a look.
