English Championship football club Leeds United has confirmed that away season ticket-holders will be able to claim a partial rebate at the end of the current season. 

Leeds supporters were among those that have been calling on the English Football League (EFL) to implement a competition-wide cap on away tickets.

The club has agreed reciprocal pricing deals with a number of Championship clubs, which has resulted in cheaper tickets than originally anticipated for Leeds away fans.

Following the uptake of a significant number of reciprocal deals, the price paid for a Leeds United away season ticket at the beginning of the campaign now works out considerably higher.

At the end of the 2023-24 season, all away season ticket-holders will be contacted with details on how to claim a partial rebate, the value and the different options available.

“We would like to thank away season ticket-holders for their continued loyalty and fantastic support,” added Leeds United in a statement.

The English Premier League has had an away ticket price cap in place for a number of years. It is set to be reviewed in 2025, after being extended in 2022.

Spanish LaLiga clubs also reached an agreement earlier this year to implement a cap to encourage more supporters to travel to away games.
