Description: A shot from the back of Elland Road here looking down at the action on the pitch with a packed South Stand in the background. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Blackpool at Elland Road on the 20th February, 2013.

The South Stand at Elland Road was built in 1974 at a cost of 500,000 pounds. It replaced the old but popular barrel roofed Scratching Shed and came with state of the art facilities. The South Stand originally had a standing area at the front with a 4,000 capacity and a further 3,500 fans could be seated in the upper tier. The South Stand has 32 executive boxes and in 2006 underwent further developments which included a new facade which boxed in the existing columns and alcoves giving the stand a more modern exterior. Also an overhall of the kitchen concourse area, a new mezzanine level office area, a total modernisation of the corporate facilities above and the Billy's Bar And Brasserie, named after Billy Bremner.

Leeds United: Kenny, Byram, Peltier, Lees, Warnock, Green, Tonge, Norris, Varney, Morison, McCormack.
Subs: Brown for Tonge, Pearce for Norris.
