Should Leeds lower their ticket prices?
Yes, the price is ridiculous
No, they can charge whatever they want
This has gathered a large response from angry fans from rival clubs, and many Leeds fans agree that the prices are ridiculous.
? Reading are the latest club to not sell out their away allocation, so extra tickets have now been made available to #LUFC fans in the West Stand

Outrageous pricing, hardly something to boast about. ‘Reading are the latest club not enjoying getting ripped off, so we are ripping our own fans off’

What do we think?
Leeds charge up to £39 for away tickets at Elland Road – that is the highest in the Championship, according to The Athletic.
It seems that judging by Leeds’ tweet, a few clubs this season have decided not to fully take up that offer.
The Whites, though, are not alone in charging above £30 for away tickets in the Championship, with QPR, Fulham, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday just a few of those also guilty of asking for higher prices.
There is a cap of £30 in the Premier League for away fans, and while some Championship clubs stick to that, others don’t, and perhaps it is more of an issue for the EFL to deal with rather than each individual club.
