Leeds United Crest

Leeds United had over 4500 fans at the DW Stadium for Saturday’s Championship game against Wigan Athletic.

Leeds United may be playing in the Championship, but they are one of the biggest clubs of England.

The following image proves that.

There were no fewer than 4698 Leeds fans at the DW Stadium for the Whites’ Championship match against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

For a club who were near the relegation zone just a few weeks ago and are set to finish in mid-table, that is a huge number.

Leeds have one of the best supporters in England and have one of the biggest fanbases in the country.

Despite the fact that the Whites have not featured in the Premier League since 2004, the support for the team has been unwavering over the years.

There are not many clubs in England who can boast the kind of support that Leeds have. Even some current Premier League teams would be envious.

On many occasions this season, those loud Leeds fans have been disappointed on away days, but on Saturday they were not.

Neil Redfearn’s side picked up all three points from the trip to the DW Stadium, Alex Mowatt’s stunning strike in the opening minutes of the second half proving to be the difference between the two teams.

Leeds are currently 13th in the Championship table with 47 points from 36 matches.
