Elland Road (capacity 39,460)
Elland Road has been home to Leeds United since their formation in 1919, when they bought the stadium for just £250. It has since been used as a venue for FA Cup Semi Finals, England internationals, and Euro 96. In addition, Elland Road hosted two games during the Rugby World Cup in 2015, as well as a number of high profile concerts.
The stadium itself remained largely unchanged until the 1960’s, during the Don Revie era. The stadium became an all-seater stadium by 1994. It is dominated by the East Stand, which holds around 15,000 supporters, with the other stands looking a little tired in comparison. Outside there are statues of Billy Bremner and Don Revie.
Away fans visiting Elland Road are located in the upper tier on one side of the John Charles Stand, nearest the South Stand, with a typical allocation of around 3,000.
There are plenty of parking options for away fans around Elland Park, with two big car parks right next to the stadium, and others a little further away.

Leeds Train Station is around a 40 minute walk to Elland Road so the best option will be either taking a taxi which will cost you around £8 or jumping on one of the shuttle buses that run directly to the stadium.
The shuttle buses cost £2.50 for a return ticket, and picks up from Sovereign Street. As you exit the station, cross the road and drop down a level of stairs to the street below. Turn right and cross the road again and you’ll see the buses waiting.
If you do decide to walk, leave the station from the rear exit, where you can walk down the short hill out of the car park and follow the road to the left. Keep going straight ahead at the traffic lights and continue on Whitehall Road for around half a mile. You’ll pass under a bridge, and then the road forks left on to Springwell Street. At the end of this road, you’ll come to a roundabout exit road with a zebra crossing. After crossing, take the next exit on to Domestic Road, which soon becomes Domestic Street, where you should continue up hill for a short while, passing under another bridge. At the top of the hill, turn right on to Shafton Lane. At the end of Shafton Lane, turn left in to Ingram Road, which you should follow until you see a pedestrian bridge, as the road bears left and becomes Tilbury Road. Finally, cross the M621 via the footbridge, then turn right at the bottom and head down Elland Road towards the stadium. As we say, probably easier to get a taxi!
