The club have now officially released a statement on the horrific badge released yesterday. Over 70 thousand fans signed a petition to stop it and the club have listened. Here is what they have said via the official website.
“Club Statement: Crest Consultation
Leeds United would like to thank our supporters for their feedback on the proposed new crest released yesterday.
The volume and depth of opinions expressed reinforced the level of passion our fan base has for our club. While the current board of directors are custodians of Leeds United the fans will always be at the heart of everything we do, and you will be listened to.
We conducted thorough research into the desire for a change to the crest to symbolise a new era for the club. However, we also appreciate the need to extend the consultation with supporters and we are committed to working with you to create an identity we can all be proud of. We will release further information on how supporters can get involved in the process next week.
Marching On Together“
