So Leeds are apparently big in Norway.

The Bergen Whites held a Christmas dinner for 75, and they aren’t the only supporter’s club in the country. It’s good to see not only the supporters’ clubs overseas, but also the Leeds official twitter account tweeting it out as well.

Football is more global than ever and the more fans that Leeds can attract overseas will not only add to the “brand” of the club, and the revenue that will come from merchandise sales and LUTV, but also the reputation of the club overseas. And while it might not matter a lot to local fans, it’s always a good thing that people will recognize Leeds all over the world.

On to the links.
