Leeds United are expecting to be able to allow 25% of capacity for the upcoming season, once Government regulations allow for any attendance at all. It is not expected that any Away fans will be able to attend any games.

In this eventuality, the club would be looking to use a balloting system - and this would probably mean that Season Ticket holders would be able to attend one in every four matches. Under current plans there would be no sales to Members, although this could change if Premier League regulations demand as much.

Following promotion Leeds only have 19 home matches instead of the previous 23, with no-one expecting to be able to attend in September. That division of fixtures means season ticket holders could end up being able to attend just four home matches.

Any future refunds on the 2020/21 season are likely to be offered as a direct rebate against season tickets for the 2021/22 season. However, this could change as the situation around COVID-19 develops.

Although the numbers said to the trust are one in four - Elland Road holds 36k which should allow 9k fans in attendance. Leeds have around 23k season ticket holders so in theory this should allow for one in three games. If the one in four is accurate - then Leeds must be saving a lot of seats for either sponsors or corporate seating.
