A new online auction website is offering Leeds United fans the opportunity to experience the legendary luxury of the Gary Speed hospitality suite for pennies.
The newly launched site, Leeds United Auction, powered by likleBID.com, offers savvy fans the chance to secure Gary Speed Hospitality tickets, shirts and gadgets at a penny auction. Liklebid.com have previously enjoyed success hosting Leeds United theme auctions on their site, and so have partnered with the football team to create a dedicated Leeds United Auction platform.
A pair of Gary Speed Suite hospitality tickets will be offered for each home match, at www.leedsunitedauctions.com
By signing up for free, you get 25 chances to win – simply create an account, verify your email address and add a profile picture. For just £1.99 you can buy 565 chances to win the Gary Speed Suite experience, and hopefully watch Leeds climb back up the Championship table.
Leedslad1975 bagged VIP tickets for the Ipswich Town game for just £1.03 on his first visit to the site.
“I’m a Leeds fan and have a season ticket but it will be great to take my son in the box,” he wrote.
“The site is great, I’m always suspicious about things that look too good to be true but not now, I’m really, really impressed.”
Jimbob_85 secured his hospitality seats to the Reading match for just £3.91.
“I’m absolutely over the moon at winning the tickets for the Leeds United match,” he wrote.
“I joined the site after reading about it in the Yorkshire Evening Post.
I never expected to actually win anything though, especially not two weeks after signing up.”
He said the match was a ‘fantastic day’.
“We were upgraded to the Eddie Gray suite at no extra cost,” he wrote.
“The suite was very nice, the food was lovely, the bar staff were constantly at the table asking if we’d like more food or drinks which was good and the seats for the game itself were great.
“I was worried the atmosphere wouldn’t be the same in the posh seats but this wasn’t the case, it was brilliant. Barring the poor result, all in all my first experience of the hospitality experience was fantastic and I’m very much looking forward to doing it again.”
Season ticket holder Crazybeanhead17 secured his Gary Speed hospitality tickets to the Sheffield United match for £13.14.
“It feels great to win the prize, it is such a great site and the ability to win prizes that are so valuable for that price is amazing,” he wrote.
Leedslad1975, Jimbob_85 and Crazybeanhead17 won their hospitality tickets on LikleBID but a new dedicated page has now been set up just for Leeds United fans – Leeds United Auctions
So how does it work?
Leeds United Auctions is a transparent reverse auction site in which the lowest unique bid wins the hospitality tickets.
It is different to other penny auction sites and it has given rise to a unique concept when trying to win Gary Speed hospitality suite tickets at Elland Road.
Instead of trying to place the lowest bid or the highest bid as many traditional online auctions work, with Leeds United Auctions you need to enter the lowest unique bid to win.
For example, there might be two bids of 50p for a day in the Gary Speed hospitality suite and while these bids might be the lowest, they aren’t unique. We know what you thinking. How would you know it is not unique bid? Simple, you are informed the bid status after every bid you submit.
If the next lowest bid is 51p and there are no other bids for this amount then you win the tickets.
This lowest unique bid penny auction has seen fans get VIP tickets for as little as 59p and match day tickets for 5p.
After signing up for free, members buy 565 ‘bids’ for just £1.99. If they don’t submit the lowest unique bid, all their paid-for bids are refunded so they can be used on the next auction.
What is the Gary Speed hospitality experience?
Named after the late midfielder who played more than 200 games for Leeds, the Gary Speed hospitality experience is first-class way to enjoy match day at Elland Road.
Ticket holders can take advantage of an American-style buffet, a match day betting service and waiter service throughout their visit.
They also get the chance to enjoy the game in executive seats in the upper tier of the East Stand and meet Leeds United legends.
Most fans think this match day experience will set them back hundreds but with the penny auction site Leeds United Auctions you can get this for less than a price of a pint.
