Leeds are well on course to sell-out the first home game of the season against Preston North End with over 30k tickets already sold and still 7 days of sales left. Leeds have already sold 18k season tickets, which is up by around 3k on last year.
It will be the first home game in a competitive match that Leeds will be playing in the stadium they own in over a decade. That may not mean much to people outside of the club but to Leeds fans it means so much. The ticket sales represent a bug summer both on and off the pitch at Leeds United that has seen 10 new signings, new coaching staff, an overhaul in the academy, a new owner and some new contracts. Preston won’t sell out their allocation, they never do, but the Leeds seats are well on the way to being full, the East Upper stand now open for sales.
Leeds travel to Bolton tomorrow, we had no problem selling out the 5k allocation for that game, and that will be the case for every away came probably, as it is most seasons. The new ticket prices haven’t effected fans who have come out in numbers to secure their seats for Preston. If Leeds do win a couple of the first few games then sell-outs are nailed on, the club managing more than a few last season with the side having a very good home record. Season tickets are also set to rise slightly with the discount better than normal due to increased ticket prices.
