Newcastle Draw Record Crowd At Elland Road

When Newcastle visit Elland Road on 20th November – our first game back after the International break – the stadium will be a sell-out.

Not only are we able to fill St. James’ Park, but we seem to be playing to record crowds on the road this season – that’s good.


It will be Elland Road’s first capacity crowd in almost six years after tickets have sold out very quickly over the last three days and the attendance is expected to be 37,890.

Leeds are reporting the only remaining tickets for the game are in the hospitality areas, including the South Stand boxes which are priced from ÂŁ75 + VAT. For more information click here.


The attendance almost six years ago was the FA Cup third-round replay against Arsenal in 2011, which drew in 38,232 fans.

    Nice to see a spark of optimism at Leed’s. It has been mostly bad news from there for years. But I say send the home crowd disappointed!

    Went to see Leeds vs Millwall a few seasons back, nasty, expect crowd trouble.

    I assume I’ve missed something, but could anyone tell me why it’s news that we don’t have to sell our captain in January?

    Was there a suggestion that we were going to have to? And if so, why him? There’s players who’d sure fetch a higher price and aren’t the team captain.

    It will be tough, as both teams are playing well of late. A full crowd should boost Leeds and therefore we find ourselves in a battle. If we stay calm and ride out the storm that should come our way, we pick them off on the counter. I’m thinking 3-1 for the final score.

    As Oldgit1 says, expect abit of trouble. The big boys will be in town and they’ll want to show us what they’ve got. I remember a game in the late 90s a mate went to and there was plenty trouble.

    I might be mistaken but aren’t both clubs high up in the recent banning order/arrests list too which won’t help.

    There’s form between the idiot fringes of both Leeds’ and our fans.
