Leeds United fans fear Radrizzani has made his first big mistake

Elland Road

Leeds released their general sale ticket prices this week.

Leeds United fans have reacted strongly to the latest ticket prices released by the club.

Whites supporters at the weekend learned prices for general sale tickets at Elland Road this season, with some adult prices in the East Stand set to cost £49.

The details were released on the club website, and supporters are united in believing they are being over-charged.

The prices are more akin to an upper-echelon Premier League team rather than a Championship side, even if they have top flight ambition.

New owner Andrea Radrizzani has been hailed as a dream owner so far since taking charge, even buying back stadium Elland Road after the club spent the last 13 seasons incurring charges by leasing it.

The feel good factor may have hit a bump in the road with the ticket news, with fans critical on social media and urging Mr Radrizzani to reconsider, suggesting it is the first wrong decision he has made since buying the club.

For some supporters the cost of the tickets will influence their decision whether to attend or not, and the club risk missing out on filling up seats if they do not drop them.

While the prices are Radrizzani's prerogative, there are plenty of supporters voicing their discontent and hoping the popular owner will reconsider.
