Important message about tickets for Crewe clash

Due to the large uptake in tickets over the past 24 hours, Leeds are expecting big queues on the day of the game.

Consequently, Leeds are advising supporters to collect their tickets early from the West Stand Ticket Office which will be open for collections from 9am until 5pm on Monday and from 9am until 7.45pm the following day.

However, only a limited amount of tickets remain for the game and supporters are advised to collect tickets before 12pm on Tuesday.

The second round clash is a 7.45pm kick-off.

Leeds sold 9,900 tickets for the game on Saturday alone.
