Breakfast Debate The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 22nd July) - Leeds United clarify away ticket allocations

Post by Ellandback1 »



Good Morning. It's Thursday 22nd July, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Leeds United clarify away ticket allocations

Leeds fans are left fuming after it was revealed their away allocation for the forthcoming season has been more than halved in some cases. Even in previous seasons in the Championship, Leeds would regularly sell out their maximum away allocation of 8000, still leaving many disappointed. The maximum allocation for any away match in the Premier League is only 3,000 versus up to 8,000 for some games in the Championship

If you are an existing away season ticket holder, you are guaranteed a renewal, as are those who have achieved the highest attendance record, attending over 80% of away games (league & cup) in the last five seasons. Home Season Ticket Holders and Members are not affected by this. They will be offered tickets on a first come, first served basis. To clarify the matter, the club have released the following statement...

Leeds United, in partnership with the Supporter Advisory Board, have reviewed the away ticketing policy for the upcoming Premier League season, taking into account the significantly reduced allocation for away fixtures and the increased demand. The maximum allocation for any away match in the Premier League is only 3,000 versus up to 8,000 for some games in the Championship.

Therefore, the club has developed an updated policy, in consultation with the Supporters Advisory Board, to ensure the allocation of away tickets is founded on rewarding away loyalty whilst also allowing the wider fan base to attend a small number of games a season to be able to experience supporting the team away from home.

The away ticketing policy will continue to be focused on rewarding our supporters who have regularly attended away fixtures, with Away Season Ticket Holders guaranteed a ticket along with those supporters who have achieved a high attendance record, attending over 80% of away games (league & cup) in the last five seasons (100 games or more between 2015/16 and 2019/20).

The remaining tickets will then be distributed between supporters who gained a high away match attendance during the 2019/20 season – these supporters will have a 50% chance of gaining a ticket for each away match (ensuring they can attend games with roughly the same frequency they did in the Championship).

This will mean that almost two thirds of the tickets will always be allocated to supporters with a track record of high away attendance.

By ensuring a small allocation of tickets are made available for Season Ticket Holders and Members, we are offering more fans the chance to experience supporting the team away from home, which will in turn help to grow the Leeds United fan base, particularly with younger supporters.

Growing our fan base is a central strategic pillar of ensuring continued on-field success. The away allocation policy will be fully transparent to supporters, and based on the standard allocation of 3,000 will be as follows:

27% Away Season Ticket Holders
9.5% Super Away Attendees**
27% Tracker (supporters with high tracker attendance from 19/20)
27% Home Season Ticket Holders on a first come first served basis
9.5% Members on a first come first served basis

** Super Away Attendees (100 or more League & Cup away games between 2015/16 and 2019/20). These supporters will be contacted directly by the Ticket Office with details of their online application process.

Home Season Ticket Holders and Members will be offered tickets on a first come, first served basis, allowing them the opportunity to not only occasionally attend an away match but also allowing them the chance to build up their away attendance to enable them to access the away tracker system for future campaigns.

Please note that there will be no new applications accepted for the Away Season Ticket Scheme and that current Away Season Ticket Holders will be contacted shortly with the information they need to renew.

Following further feedback from supporters, the club are also changing the sale time for away tickets from 10:30am to 1pm to allow supporters to access the internet more easily to be able to apply, and there will be a restriction on the number of away tickets that can be purchased in one transaction online (this will be capped at 10 tickets - to still allow groups to arrange travel together).

The club understands that the distribution of away tickets is an important and emotive topic for supporters and the club believes it has, with supporter feedback, developed a fair and transparent policy founded on loyalty that has evolved to address the issues surrounding the significant reduction in allocations and increase in demand.

For further information relating to the away ticket policy for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign, please contact the Leeds United Ticket Office on 0371 334 1992.




New home shirt revealed

Leeds Utd have revealed their new home shirt for the forthcoming season, and it goes on sale from 9am this morning! Many have speculated over recent weeks whether Adidas would keep with tradition, or go with a new fresh concept - fortunately its a combination of both. The new home shirt is predominantly white with the traditional three Adidas stripes running down the middle of the shoulder in a bright yellow. A spokesman for the Whites was quoted as saying...

A second season back in the Premier League beckons. "Swashbuckling football, constant attack, incredible stamina. "Now everyone can see it. "This team. These players. They want to make you proud. "Different by design. The wait is over, the new home shirt is here. Pure Leeds United.

When adidas designed the jersey, they went for clean and fresh. "Made with Primegreen, a high-performance recycled material, the soft, textured fabric joins forces with moisture-absorbing AEROREADY to ensure a comfortable wear whenever you feel like showing off your colours.

The famous three stripes adorn the shoulders, and the shirt is accompanied with traditional white shorts and socks. The kit design is further complimented by colour matched sponsor logos from SBOTOP, BOXT and JD. "The legendary Elland Road atmosphere is set to return this coming season, something unique, so get ready back at LS11 and wear the white shirt with pride.




Pablo rejoins boyhood club after 24 year wait

Pablo Hernandez is set to turn back the clock, and pen a three year deal with his boyhood club Castellon. The veteran 36 year old has spent the last 5 seasons at Elland Road, netting 31 times in 152 appearances; during which time the four time Spanish International gained cult status with the Elland Road faithful.

Hernadez first joined Castellon at the tender age of twelve. He spent 5 years there learning his trade, before Valencia came knocking! Reports in Spain say Hernandez has turned down more lucrative offers to play for Castellon. A club representative said...

CD Castellón has reached an agreement with Pablo Hernández whereby the international midfielder for Spain and more than 400 matches in the elite becomes an Albinegro player for the next three seasons, until June 30, 2024.

Pablo has been linked to the club since 2017 as a shareholder, when Vicente Montesinos assumed the presidency of the entity in the Third Division, a key moment in history with the club at risk of disappearance. "Now, still with a lot of magic in his boots, he becomes the franchise player in the premiere at the First RFEF. In the next few days, Pablo Hernández will be officially presented to the media.

Think the reduced away allocation was always going to be the case in the Premier. Difference been many Championship Clubs need the cash teams such as ourselves can bring, not so in the Prem where TV money is king.

Like the Kit :tup:

Good Luck to Pablo and well played to him choosing "his club" over money :clap:

A fitting way for Pablo to end his playing career.
Absolutely delighted for him. I shall be watching Castellon's results closely.

Morning EB et all

Ticket allocation for away games will always be an issue for us as so many want them, I'm sure many clubs would happily give us a bigger allocation (Arsenal, Everton, Burley etc...) as at least once a season they'd like to see passionate fans in their grounds ;-)

Liking the new shirt, just hope they have the Dad Bod version in this year

To Pablo we love you and wish you all the best, you'll always be welcome back as you are a legend MOT :celeb:

One of our worst shirts in recent years, overlooking the nasty ad on the front those gold stripes on the shoulder look like we should work for an airline.. I usually have good things to say about shirts but that is one of my least favourites

Great choice by Pablo. Back home with the family where it all began for him. I am sure he still has plenty to give on the pitch aswell.

It's not that bad tbh. The collar looks a bit weird. But all these kits are just the same but in clubs' colour. There should be different styles per club.

Away tickets have become more & more difficult to acquire since Bielsaball arrived at Leeds.

Gone have the days when us mad as a hatter fans could travel to the likes of Wycombe, Swindon, Carlisle, etc with comparative ease!

Unless you're an Away Season Ticket Holder going to away games will be down to pot luck.

As for the new kit, I'll reserve judgement until I see it at ER.

Good luck Pablo :love: a real modern day Leeds legend.

Afternoon pal,

Really well said regarding the body shape for the shape.

A constant bugbear for me is shopping for clothes such as a nice pair of jeans. Every shop you go to 80 percent of their trouser stock are skinny jeans / skinny shirts which look ridiculous on anyone over 30.

I remember asking one of the Managers from one High st claim they should have a banner outside saying if you're over 30, you're not welcome.

Looks like Bobby Kamwa is also on his way out of the club as he was playing in a friendly yesterday for Rotherham Utd. We could be on the verge of shipping out a dozen U23s this Summer

More miss than hit so far.

For me we cant keep carrying both him and Costa in the match day squad. I dont feel he would agree to a loan spell outside the club either.
Tricky one.

I think Valencia are interested in Costa at 8m

Neither. He's got time on his side (he's only 21) and if he can replicate his form in the first City game, where he gave Mendy the biggest runaround of his life then he'll be fantastic. Having Raphinha around to learn from will only help.

Yep. As it stands he's our #4 winger and he has a lot of potential. Still way to early.

Exactly.

Go to any store, and the only trousers left are 28, 30, 32 and some 34's. You'll be hard pressed to find many options at 36 reg, 38 reg or 40 reg - because they're all sold out - BUT THEY NEVER LEARN
