Awayday Guide: Leeds United
Fulham’s second away league fixture in four days sees Slavisa Jokanovic’s side travel to Elland Road on Tuesday night to play Leeds United.
Tickets are available priced at £37 for adults, £25 for those aged 60 and above, £25 for those aged between 16 and 22, £16 for under-16s and £8 for under-11s. Disabled supporters tickets are priced at £25. Tickets bought on Tuesday rise by £5 in each category. We would advise Fulham fans without tickets to purchase as swiftly as possible via the Fulham FC ticket office either in person or by calling 0203 871 0810. In response to the extortionate ticket pricing, Fulham’s first team sponsor Grovesnor Casinos are offering free travel to and from Elland Road in the form of coaches, which can be booked on 0203 871 0810.
GETTING TO ELLAND ROAD
Exit the M1 at Junction 43 and take the M621 towards Leeds City Centre. You will go past the ground on your left, take the next exit at Junction 1 and turn left onto the A6110 ring road. Take the next left onto Elland Road for the ground. As you head under a railway bridge, you will see the entrances to two very large car parks (which are reasonably priced at £6).
The nearest railway station to Elland Road is Leeds, which can be reached from King’s Cross. It is between 35 and 40 minutes walk to the ground, so your best bet will be to take one of the shuttle buses (£2.50 return) from Sovereign Street – directly opposite the Hilton Hotel – or get a taxi (which should cost around £8).
At the ground itself, Howard’s Bar, which is dedicated to away supporters, is situated between the South and West Stands. Supporters will have to show their away match ticket to gain access to the bar, which will open at 5.45pm.
The closest pub to the ground which admits away fans is The Drysalters (Elland Road, LS11 8AX), which is about 10 minutes walk from the stadium. This pub serves real ale, food and shows Sky Sports and BT Sport on its TV screens.
Some city centre pubs will also welcome away fans but may also insist that any colours are covered up.
