Many Leeds United fans have been reacting online after the club shared an update on Twitter regarding the ticket allocation for December’s trip to Huddersfield Town.
Marcelo Bielsa and his men will be marching into the John Smith’s Stadium on December 7 looking to notch another three points on the board, and bring West Yorkshire bragging rights back to Elland Road.
Supporters wishing to attend the derby against Danny Cowley’s Terriers will have to act swiftly, though, as just 2,300 tickets have been allocated for visiting supporters.
Tickets will be prioritised in favour of fans who hold a Whites’ Away Season Ticket, before the remaining allocation will be allotted to supporters who attended the most away games during the 2018/19 Championship campaign up to and including the Play-Off Semi-Final and have purchased a 2019/20 Home Season Ticket or 2019/20 Membership.
At first, tickets will go on sale on November 18 at 10:30 to supporters who attended at least 17 away league games last season, before any remaining unsold tickets will hit the market on November 20 for fans who attended 16 or more fixtures, then November 27 for fans who attended 15 or more.
Where do we need to improve in January?
Leeds selling tickets based on how many away games supporters attended last season has been a key issue some fans have raised in response to the club’s update.
Here are a few of the messages shared…
