It’s actually closing in on a sell-out but looks like it may fall just short of the 33k needed to fill out all the home seats. The opening of the upper tier against Fulham on a Tuesday was staggering for Leeds fans who have seen 17k at times for a mid-week game, but now that tier filling up…great times.
The home end was completely sold out on Saturday, and against Preston North End in the opening home game at Elland Road this season and judging by the feel-good factor and form we will probably sell-out in our next home game against Ipswich in a couple of weeks. Every game is huge at Elland Road, it always has been but the crowds haven’t always suggested that theory. At times in the last few years it’s been a struggle getting 20k through the gates during the week, but that won’t happen this season because we have sold over 20k in season tickets alone.
Leeds are easily averaging the highest attendance at home in the league so far this season and tomorrow night will do that no harm at all. The game is tough, Birmingham haven’t had a good start but under Harry Redknapp it’s probably a matter of time before they start hitting form and we need to make sure we keep up the levels of performance that have been pushing us to the top end of the table in the early stages of the season. A bumper crowd on Saturday, many young fans came and that will help the fans come back in the future, a quality performance from the players means entertainment was at a premium.
