Due to more funding, Leeds United will soon move forward with the development of Elland Road.
The Whites are now enjoying packing a boisterous Elland Road, with every Premier League game selling out within minutes due to the high demand for tickets.
The club should therefore guarantee that there are additional seats in the stadium to fulfil the demands by expanding, since this would be the proper course of action.
Leeds’ intentions to grow at LS11 have long been known about, although the exact timeline is still unknown.
Plans to renovate the stadium are now in place and are expected to be implemented quickly, according to the Daily Mail:

“Leeds United is making headway in their effort to renovate Elland Road, which would increase the stadium’s capacity to 55,000 and greatly increase the club’s earnings.
“Managing director Angus Kinnear is driving the effort, and when the project starts, we anticipate Peter Lowy, the former CEO of the Westfield Group, to play a significant role.
“The expansion would feature a considerable increase in corporate and retail facilities, and the club currently has 22,000 fans on a waiting list for season tickets.
“No dates have been specified but growth is high on the agenda.”
Billionaire Peter Lowy, a lifelong supporter of Leeds, is responsible for the funding plan to modernise Elland Road.
Push the issue through
We have needed this since since the promotion was confirmed back in 2020 because we were aware of the impact the COVID backlog would have on ticket demand.
You would anticipate that this would significantly alleviate the problem of how tough it has become for supporters without season tickets to attend games on a regular basis.
I believe that the achievement of Premier League safety in our first two seasons has elevated this to the top of the priority list.
