A few Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after the club announced details on tickets for next month’s Championship clash with promotion rivals Fulham.
The Cottagers and we are locked in a battle for the automatic promotion places heading into the final quarter of the season, with neither club keen to see their fate decided in the Play-Offs.
Fulham secured their place in the 2018/19 Premier League season through the Play-Offs with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the Final at Wembley, while we bowed out of the 2018/19 Play-Offs in the Semi-Finals after losing the second-leg to Derby County.
Will the Fulham clash decide who gets an automatic place?
Yes, it will be decisive
No, but it will be key
The Play-Offs have not been too kind to us down the years, as we also fell at the final hurdle in 2006 when Watford won at the Millennium Stadium 3-0. We would also lose 1-0 to Doncaster Rovers in the 2008 League One Play-Off Final and get beaten 2-1 on aggregate by Millwall in the Semi-Finals the following season.
March’s clash with Fulham could potentially be the “biggest game” of our season, as one supporter has put it after the club announced that tickets will go on sale to Gold Members on February 25 at 09:00.
Season ticket holders will be unable to purchase addition tickets while Gold Members are able to buy theirs, but home season ticket holders will be awarded the opportunity to purchase admission on February 28 should any tickets remain unsold.
General sale will then commence on March 2, subject to availability, while the Cottagers’ trip to Elland Road has been listed as a Category A game.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the club’s ticket update…
