English Championship football club Leeds United is set to introduce a season ticket usage policy, with fans facing the threat of losing their seat should they not attend at least 80% of home league games. 

Season ticket renewals begin today and will run until April 8, with the club updating the terms and conditions on general admission season tickets.

Leeds posted an update that said: “Despite the overwhelming demand for tickets, Season Ticket holders not attending matches at Elland Road is still a problem as it detracts from our legendary atmosphere that is vital to the teams’ performance.”

As a result, a new ‘usage’ condition will be implemented from the 2024-25 season, with season ticket-holders required to achieve the 80% threshold, or they will not be invited to renew the following season.

The club defines attendance as going to the game at the 37,000-capacity Elland Road (pictured) personally, a friend or family member using the ticket, or putting the seat up for resale via Leeds United’s official ticket exchange scheme.

Adult season ticket prices will begin at £18.87 (€22/$24) per game if the club remains in the Championship or £22.84 if the team is promoted back to the Premier League. Under-11s will cost £3.74 for the Championship or £4.53 for the Premier League.

Leeds United is currently second in the Championship table, six points behind Leicester City.
