South To East

Description: Looking at the East Stand here at Elland Road during a break in play, with this one coming from the South Stand. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Brighton and Hove Albion at Elland Road on the 3rd August, 2013.

The South Stand at Elland Road was built in 1974 at a cost of 500,000. 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.

The East Stand at Elland Road was built in 1993 at a cost of 5.5m. It replaced the old Lowfields Road stand which was demolished in 1992. The East Stand runs along the length of the pitch and is the latest stand in the Elland Road family. The stand has 25 executive boxes that are housed between the two tiers. The top tier of the East Stand holds 7,000 fans and the bottom tier has a capacity of 10,000 making the enormous East Stand's capacity 17,000. The East Stand's cantilever stand model is one of the largest cantilever stands in the world. Originally the bottom tier catered for the family stand members that were relocated from the South East corner after the stand was built in 1993. This has since been changed and now either side of the bottom tier is the area for Members Club members and season ticket holders with juveniles. A large concourse runs under the East Stand that contains shops for Leeds United merchandise, fast food, bookies and a restaurant. In March 2011 the first phase of a multi million five phase redevelopment of the stand took place.

Leeds United: Kenny, Peltier, Pearce, Lees, Warnock, Green, Murphy, Tonge, McCormack, Varney, Hunt.
Subs: Poleon for Hunt, Drury for Warnock, Smith for Varney.
