Leeds United have now confirmed that the horrific attempt at a new badge for the club has been canned. The club have today announced that fans have the chance to submit any ideas they have for a new badge before fans panels will narrow it down. From there all season ticket holders and members will have the chance to vote on the new one. The only question is, why couldn’t they do this the first time around?

Statement via www.leedsunited.com

“Further engagement with supporters announced.

Following on from last week’s commitment to extend consultation with our supporters on the proposed crest change, we are pleased to announce further details.

We would like to thank our loyal fan base for the overwhelming engagement on the future of the club crest.

We have seen a great number of designs and ideas, and to ensure every fan can have their say, we are calling on supporters to share your inspiration for the new crest via email at: crest@leedsunited.com

Using your ideas as inspiration, a small shortlist of refined designs will be chosen by fan panels and then go to a democratic vote amongst all our Season Ticket Holders and Members on Wednesday 21st February, with our new crest announced by the end of the month.

We remain committed to working with you to create an identity that we can all be proud of for the 2018-19 season and beyond.”

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
