Leeds United have revealed that current season ticket holders yet to renew will be given a second chance to do so after the initial deadline passed on Friday.

The Whites have seen 21,600 season ticket holders sign up for the 2020/21 campaign so far.

Leeds, though, have seen their current push for Premier League football put on hold amid the coronavirus outbreak.

United have nine games of the season remaining but do not yet know when fixtures will recommence due to the ongoing global health crisis.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the conclusion of the domestic leagues across Europe and the forthcoming campaign, 94 per cent of supporters have opted to commit for another term.

Leeds have now said that due to the unprecedented situation those who missed the deadline will be given a second opportunity to sign up once the club's ticket office reopens.

Chief executive Angus Kinnear said: “We cannot thank our Season Ticket Holders enough for their continued and unrivalled support.

“The fact that almost 60 per cent of supporters had renewed within the first month left us in a position where it would have been unfair to extend the window, especially when we have reached 94% retention by the deadline.

“Candidly this revenue will be our life blood that sustains the club over a period when all other income has ceased, however, we do understand that many fans are experiencing hard times at the moment and therefore we are committed to ensuring that they will get an opportunity to renew for next season once the Ticket Office is operational again.”

United also confirmed they had no plans to make new season tickets available on sale.
