Opening the East Upper for the mid-week Fulham game was pretty impressive, the first league game it has been open for in many years, and we look like we could sell-out the game against Burton this Saturday, the first time we will have sold out our first two home-games on Saturdays since the Premier League days.
Leeds head into the Burton game sitting pretty in the play-off positions, a far cry from being sat just above the relegation zone at this stage last season, coming off the back of a 3-1 loss at the City Ground against opponents Nottingham Forest. Next week represents three tough games but three games we will want to take a high number of points from. Burton is followed by Birmingham at home and then a trip to Millwall on the Saturday and all three are winnable. Andrea Radrizzani has introduced the first bundle package for fans, where they get reduced prices for tickets if they but both Burton and Birmingham games.
Leeds have been steadily growing the homes support again since the arrival of Garry Monk last season. We all know that away allocations are sold out week after week but selling the seats at Elland Road hasn’t always been easy since we came back down from the Premier League. In fact at times we have been struggling for 20k in some mid-week league games since we came back into the Championship and if you look at old videos and clips of games you’ll see a half empty South Stand and east even more, both full almost every game. The good feeling is back at Elland Road and the side have given us the chance to start believing early again this season.
