Yeah, this may not have been the brightest idea.

Leeds United have announced that they will be streaming their pre-season game against Manchester United via their in-house media service LUTV, with fans having to pay £7.99 to watch.

Whilst it’s always nice that clubs do their bit to help fans out with pre-season games, especially the ones that are incredibly far way, it seems that there’s a limit to how much goodwill a gesture like this can bring before fans start getting annoyed, with fans complaining about the cost.

Although, there is one part of the deal that I think is pretty obvious to see why Leeds fans aren’t exactly bouncing for joy over.

It was announced in the statement on the club website that “Due to the broadcasting restrictions in place on the fixture, supporters should be aware the live match coverage will carry MUTV branding.”

Given the fierce rivalry that has surrounded the fixture in the past, even a minor detail like having a Man Utd badge in the corner of the screen was enough to get these Leeds United fans mad at the whole thing. Even madder when you consider that they have to pay for it.
