Away Day Guide – Leeds United
Marco Silva’s Whites head to Elland Road on Sunday looking to make it seven points from their last three fixtures. Here’s our away day guide.
All allocated away tickets have sold out. There will be no tickets available for Fulham fans at Elland Road tomorrow afternoon.
GETTING TO ELLAND ROAD
Come off the M1 at Junction 43 and head for Leeds City Centre on the M621. You will drive past Elland Road on your left before leaving at Junction 1 – whereupon you will need to take a left onto the A6110. The next left will bring onto Elland Road and there a couple of large car parks (charge: £6) under the railway bridge.
Leeds station is more than half an hour’s walk from Elland Road. There is a shuttle bus service – £2.50 for a return – that departs from Sovereign Street (opposite the Hilton Hotel on Neville Street), which is a couple of minutes’ on foot from the station. Fulham fans taking the bus are advised to exit the station via the main entrance, cross the road and head downstairs to the street immediately below that level. Head right, then cross over the road and the double decker buses should be visible. You will be dropped off at Lowfields Road, at the corner of the East and South stands. Alternatively, a taxi from the station should cost in the region of £10.
The Club’s matchday coaches from Motspur Park and Craven Cottage are fully booked.
There is a specific bar for visiting supporters next to the away turnstiles, called Howard’s. Fulham fans will need to show their match ticket to gain entry and the bar will open at 12 noon.
Drysalters (Elland Road, Beeston, Leeds LS11 8AX) will welcome away supporters, with a wide-ranging selection of ale, lager, spirits, beer and wines. There is a good set of reasonably-priced and tasty food options with televised sport available. The pub is a popular on matchdays, so Fulham fans are advised to get there early.
There are a number of pubs that will admit away fans within the city centre, but most will insist that colours are covered up and may refuse entry even then. The Wetherspoons on the north concourse of Leeds Railway Station is a good option for Fulham fans wanting a quick drink and or a bite to eat before travelling to Elland Road.
