Leeds United will almost certainly sell-out every home seat for Saturday’s game at home to Birmingham City. The Blues arrival will see the return of Garry Monk to Leeds United for the second time. Although he won’t be in for as much stick as last season it will come his way, and he’ll want to silence the crowd.
Leeds have sold out nearly every home and away game this season and although tomorrow at home to Preston will be very different with it being midweek, Birmingham will sell-out. As of earlier today there was around 200 tickets left and it won’t take long for them to sell out. Leeds fans often come in numbers at the start of the season if we start well, but keeping that up is another story entirely. There are around 20k season ticket holders so it needs 13k on the day to have bought tickets.
Away fans offer an entirely different situation, especially at the prices that Leeds United charge. Leeds are one of the highest in terms of ticket prices. The clubs fans have today had to pay £40 per ticket, or £39 to be precise for the trip to Sheffield Wednesday next Friday night and the tickets are like gold dust. The season ticket holders allocation was gone within 10 minutes, and the members allocation won’t be far off that.
Marcelo Bielsa has led to side to an unbeaten start to the season, although Preston North End stand in the way of that record at Saturday tomorrow night. Preston are the only team to have beaten Bielsa’s side this season, a league cup win at Elland Road a few weeks ago.
