Leeds could face £1MILLION bill after failing to make Championship play-offs

Date Posted,April 30, 2017

Leeds United have confirmed they will refund 25 per cent of the cost of fans’ season tickets after Garry Monk’s side missed out on a Championship play-off spot.

Leeds drew 3-3 with Norwich at Elland Road on Saturday and would need a 13-goal swing on the final day of the season to sneak into the top six.

Monk’s side appeared shoe-ins for a shot at promotion, but a run of one win in seven games scuppered their promotion hopes.

Instead, Fulham will join Huddersfield, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday in the play-offs, which means Leeds must honour their pledge to refund 25 per cent of season tickets bought before the end of May last year.

The club had said they would refund 50 per cent of the cost if they sold 15,000 tickets and failed to win promotion.

But they sold slightly fewer, but the bill could still reach seven figures.

Monk’s future at Elland Road is the other big issue at the club as they call time on this season, with the Whites boss set to discuss a new deal with owners Andrea Radrizzani and Massimo Cellino.

The 38-year-old’s one-year deal expires in the summer, but Leeds have the option to keep the former Swansea boss on a rolling deal.
