On Wednesday, journalist Phil Hay reported on Leeds’ new club badge which will be introduced in the 2019/20 season to celebrate their centenary, with the new design set to be worn on next term’s home and away shirts but reverted back to normal the year after.
The adjustments are minimal, as is probably preferable in order to avoid fan outrage. The famous shield remains but the letters ‘LUFC’ have been replaced by ‘Leeds United’ and ‘100 years’, written on golden banners above and below the crest respectively.
The Whites will be hoping that the new crest will be accompanied by a Premier League badge on the sleeve, as they enter an exciting final period of the campaign – automatic promotion is within touching distance for the Yorkshire outfit but they must be careful not to drop any more points from here.
Who do you want to see promoted this year? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have picked their 3 favoured teams in the video below…
West Brom announced themselves in the title race on Tuesday night with a last-gasp win at QPR and Leeds will be hoping they can leave the Baggies in the dust on Saturday by taking all three points from their clash with Bolton.
Journalist Phil Hay Tweeted his coverage of Leeds’ new badge on Wednesday, including an image of it. Here’s what the Elland Road faithful had to say about it on Twitter, with many supporters far from impressed…
Leeds United turn 100 in October and they've tweaked the club crest for their centenary year. Here it is:https://t.co/DEzSlwFOme

More important things on the pitch to worry about instead of a badge.

Just don’t see the point in the crest. At least before it had the lufc script. Now it’s just stripes. What relevance are the stripes? It’s a poor effort again imo. Wouldn’t have taken much at all to make that great.

An unnecessary waste of time and money. Slight downgrade on existing badge, but at least it’s not gaviscon. We’ll all love it if it reminds us of our first year back in the prem, so let’s not waste too much time moaning about it #LUFC

Played it completely safe but still somehow managed to balls it up. Should have kept the LUFC in there for me. Least it’s only for a season I suppose.
