Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has reversed his decision to only allow Leeds to take 2,000 fans to away games, ITV has revealed.
The controversial Leeds United owner had previously vowed to only allow 2,000 away tickets for Leeds away games to be sold, in protest to the amount of the Yorkshire club’s games that get televised.
The reason he gave for this was he believed Leeds lost out on revenue, as a result of these televised games.
This led to anger from many Leeds fans, which is understandable, as the average away attendance for their club so far this season is just over 3,300.
Fortunately for those fans, after consultation with fan group ‘Leeds Fans United’, Cellino has decided to go back on his previous decision, so Leeds will be able to have more than 2,000 fans present at away games.
This news comes in an eventful week for the Sky Bet Championship club, with Uwe Rosler being sacked and Steve Evans being appointed the new Head Coach.
In addition, Cellino himself has been disqualified from being Leeds owner by the Football League.
