Sabri Lamouchi's Reds will travel to Yorkshire and lock horns with the Whites at Elland Road on Saturday 10 August, a 12:30pm kickoff which will also be broadcast live on television.
Forest published details on their official website, confirming that the Trickies have received an initial allocation of 1,566 reserved seat tickets located in the upper tier of the John Charles Stand.
For adults, away tickets will cost £39 pre-matchday and £44 on matchday - prices which many Trickies faithful on social media deemed extortionate:
Disgraceful pricing once again @lufc.— Forza Forest (@ForestForza) 26 July 2019
How can you justify such ludicrously prices prices when the game has already been moved for television?@nffc please hit back, they’ll do the same to everyone else this season but someone needs to take a stand.#nffc #lufc
Absolutely mate - totally agree - but they’re exploiting #NFFC fans’ loyalty.— Forza Forest (@ForestForza) 26 July 2019
We’ll charge them £30 tops when they come to us - I don’t want to hit their fans hard but we should do something like that. Someone has to make a stand, it’s beyond ludicrous.
Nearly as expensive as him though— Gary (@RedDogGary) 26 July 2019
39 quid— Jon (@jonrileynffc) 26 July 2019

£39 tell them to jog on.— scott (@ScottNFFC1865) 26 July 2019
£39 in adavance or £44 on the day. For a match on TV. @LUFC you are a disgrace.— Trevor Smith (@MrSmithInNotts) 26 July 2019

£39! Swear it goes up every season.— Adam Webster (@Adam_Webster96) 26 July 2019
What a joke, how do they get away with those prices, cost less to go a club in the Capital. EFL should do something to cap prices for away travel if they feel like ripping off home fans every other week.— Gary Marriott (@GaryMarriott73) 26 July 2019
For those saying @nffc should charge the same, league rules say you can't charge a different amount for same part of the ground so Forest fans in LB would be charges £39 for the return leg. All other clubs in the league should protest to the @EFL though, blatant rip-off.— Ian Trembirth (@IanTrem) 26 July 2019
The game between Leeds and Forest will be the second one of the league campaign for both teams, the former beginning the season away at Bristol City, and the latter hosting West Bromwich Albion at the City Ground the previous weekend.
Leeds remained winless against Forest last season, the Reds playing out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road in October 2018 before Marcelo Bielsa's side were beaten 4-2 at the City Ground on New Year's Day (11v11).
