Fans have been reminded that the only place to purchase tickets for first-team games is through the official club channels either online or at the Elland Road ticket office, having been alerted to several online ticket scams.

Tickets are in high demand for both home and away fixtures following Marcelo Bielsa's first season at the club as the Whites aim to build on a third-place finish last term.

Supporters have also been warned that if they are found in breach of the club's ticket policy or are found to be reselling tickets they risk having their accounts suspended.

A statement read: "The club has received a number of complaints from fans who have been victims of online ticket scams, by purchasing tickets from individuals or third party websites that do not have access to our tickets.

"Ticket resale is prohibited and any individuals who are found to be reselling tickets will result in having their ticket cancelled without a refund and a ban placed on their account, suspending ticket purchases."
