Last year, around this time actually, Leeds fans were in the midst of a brave promise to fans that they’d refund up to 50% of the cost of season ticket purchases should the Whites fail to make the play-offs.
As it was, season ticket sales failed to reach the ceiling to trigger the 50% refund deal, Leeds fans instead having to be content with a potential refund of just a 25% portion of their season ticket renewal/purchase cost.
It looked for a long time that Leeds United might have avoided a bullet with the Whites seemingly looking destined for an improbable place in the Sky Bet Championship Play-offs, staying in the top six for 142 days and 26 matches. A 1-0 defeat to Wolves at Elland Road saw Leeds drop out and into 7th place, from where they never recovered.
Whilst the club missed out on a shoot-out for the Premier League, the compensation for fans was that at least next season’s ticket price would be less burdensome on their pocket.
Leeds fans have been growing a little restless as they awaited confirmation of how, and when, the promised refund would be actioned. That news was forthcoming earlier today, being announced on the club’s official website.
