Leeds United fans praise club’s scarf initiative

Most of the time, football fans get frustrated when they are encouraged by their club to show more support to the team.

Leeds United supporters, though, have hailed the Championship outfit for their latest initiative.

The Yorkshire-based outfit have called on the fans to bring club scarves to this weekend’s clash against Hull City at Loftus Road, as well as New Year’s Day match against Nottingham Forest.

The aim is to create a sea of blue, yellow and white at Elland Road, and there is also a charitable reason behind it.

Each time a half-price scarf is sold between now and January 1, 2018 all profits will go to the Leeds United Foundation, which supports a number of charities.

Fans have been left delighted by the cause and they granted their approval on Twitter.

As mentioned, nine times out of 10, clubs are criticised by fans for trying to urge more support.

Plastic flags, for example, have become synonymous with ‘fake’ supporters.
