Leeds United’s official website has announced that the club has broken their season ticket renewals record for the 2023/24 season after the deadline for renewal passed last Friday.
98% of current season ticket holders chose to renew, a figure made even more impressive by the fact that the Whites have found themselves firmly locked in a Premier League relegation battle for the last two consecutive seasons.
Leeds’ damaging 1-5 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday saw them plunge further down the table, from 13th to 16th place. The West Yorkshire side now sit just two points above the relegation zone, with a tough fixture to come next Monday when Liverpool visit Elland Road.
The club recognised the importance of the “overwhelming and unconditional support for the team” that the breaking of this record represents in an official statement.
“After the deadline for Season Ticket renewals passed on Friday, Leeds United are delighted to have seen supporters once again show their overwhelming and unconditional support for the team,” the statement read.
“As the club enters its final matches of the 2022/23 Premier League season, the backing that Javi Gracia and his players have received has once again been phenomenal, and this will be needed in our remaining four home matches.
“Win, lose or draw the Leeds United faithful have been there to encourage the team through it all, as always.
“We would like to wholeheartedly thank our superb fanbase after 98% of supporters with a Season Ticket opted to renew their seat by Friday’s deadline, which is a new record renewal rate for the club.”
The 98% of supporters who chose to renew will no doubt be hoping that their club survive the drop – and in doing so ensure that it is Premier League and not Championship football they will be witnessing at Elland Road next season.
