Man Utd and Leeds in ticket row with outrage over low Elland Road away allocation and no discount for senior supporters


MANCHESTER UNITED and Leeds are involved in a furious row over away tickets for their clash at Elland Road next month.

The Red Devils have only been offered 2,565 seats, when they were expecting 3,000, for the February 20 match.

And they were also disappointed by Leeds’ decision not to offer discounts for seniors.

United lodged an official complaint with the Premier League.

And a club email to fans read: “Leeds United have offered our fans only 2,565 (including 225 restricted view) tickets for this game versus the 3,000 we were expecting in line with Premier League guidelines.

“They have also indicated they will not offer a concessionary discount for seniors.

“These issues have been escalated to the Premier League.”

The problem came about after Leeds installed a TV studio in the away section before Christmas which reduced capacity, according to the Mail.

The club were told visiting fans must take priority.

And that has left the Whites facing a £50,000 bill to remove it.

TV and broadcasting operations will now take place pitch-side or elsewhere in the stadium.

As a result, United have now been offered an amount closer to the 3,000 they were expecting.

The number is still a little short of 3k with ‘segregation logistics’ being blamed.

A ‘minimal offering’ of concessions for over-65s will also be made available.
