Hold onto your hats, people, Leeds United have finally ended an awful run. On the field they’ve impressed this season and their performances have been reflected by ticket sales.
Remarkably, the Whites have managed to sell-out for a home game for the first time in SIX years – there are no tickets available for their hosting of Championship leaders Newcastle United on 20th November.

It’s quite staggering that it’s taken a club as big as Leeds six years to sell all of their tickets for a home game, especially as there are no shortage of competitive matches in the Championship.
Garry Monk’s revival of the Yorkshire giants has certainly played it’s part though and, if results go their way this weekend, Leeds could find themselves in the play-off spots by the time the clash with Newcastle comes around after the international break.
Just one-point off the top-six, Leeds have lost only one of their last six matches across all competitions but face fierce competition to seal a spot in the play-offs.
Their next two clashes against Norwich City and Newcastle could be decisive, with the relegated Premier League pair favourites to return to the top-flight at the first time of asking, and things don’t get much easier for Leeds fixture wise as they have to face Liverpool in the EFL Cup and Aston Villa and Brighton in the league next month.
