Leeds United Ladies drew a crowd of 830 to the free match Sunday at Elland Road, which doesn’t sound like a lot until you look at what the other teams in the divisions had for their attendance. Not gonna lie, when I first heard the attendance numbers for the match at Elland Road I was a tad disappointed. After all, only 830 people showed up to a free match? But then I saw this tweet and it made me proud to keep supporting Leeds United Ladies and covering them. Please, up the support of the Ladies team. Women’s football is the future, and the return of of the Ladies team is more than just a feel-good story.

Anyway, thought I’d share these figures with everyone, just to let everyone know how much their support of LULFC matters. All Leeds Aren’t We.
