New EFL plan could see Leeds United win promotion at Elland Road

An EFL source has told Football Insider that officials are planning for the Championship to be completed at the 24 clubs’ own grounds.

This means that Leeds, who currently sit at the top of the Championship table, could eventually be in with the chance of gaining their long-awaited return to Premier League, at Elland Road.

The Club have been without Premiership football for 16 years and the Corona virus pandemic halted their plans to finally reach the promise land.

Leeds are seven points clear of Fulham in third place and their home form can certainly provide fans of the Yorkshire giants with optimism – having only lost three times at Elland Road in the Championship this season.

With West Brom only one point behind Leeds in second, it could see another dramatic end to the season in the race for the title.

The new proposal is still being weighed up by the EFL, but they are said to be pressing ahead with a restart that would mirror the Premier League, who are set for another key summit meeting today as they work on a 12 June return to competition.

Previous talk over potential ways to continue the Championship have seen discussions of the involvement of neutral grounds, but with this new proposed plan fans can take happiness in the fact that fixtures might still be played at their home venues, despite them being behind closed doors.

The government is expected to provide detailed encouragement in the next 24 hours through documents about restarting elite sport, following Boris Johnson’s address to the country yesterday evening.
