Spotted Kop

Spotted Kop

Description: The Gelderd End here with the fans holding up white cards that were left beneath their seats, an attempt by the club to make the famous end a sea of white. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Huddersfield Town at Elland Road on the 16th March, 2013. A discount on the home shirt was on offer from the Elland Road shop and fans were encouraged to buy the shirt to make the Kop at Elland Road all white. The promotion was called 'Paint It White' after the book by United fan Gary Edwards. Monarch Airlines, the sponsors of the North Stand, also got in on the campaign and provided the white cards that were designed to be lifted. Printed on the card was a discount from the airline.

The Spion Kop at Elland Road was built in the 1920's and attained its name from a hill in South Africa. During the Boer War 322 British soldiers lost their lives on the hill and many football teams named their stands after Spion Kop hill in tribute to the fallen men. The original Kop was all terracing and built on an embankment, at this time the Kop had no roof. In April 1968 the old Spion Kop terracing was stripped away in no less than six weeks and in its place the new Kop was built complete with a roof and new name. The Elland Road Kop was now known as the Gelderd End. The new stand cost 250,000 to build. In 1994 as a result of the recommendations in the Taylor Report which was published in 1990 the Gelderd End became all seater. 7,000 seats were added to the terrace reducing the stands capacity by just under 3,000. The Gelderd End was the final stand at the Elland Road stadium to acquire seats. The new look Kop was officially opened in October by the President of the club, Lord Harewood and Mrs E Revie the late Don Revie's widow. The Gelderd End was renamed after the great manager himself and the stand is now officially known as the Revie Stand.

Gallery and all institutes are pilled for the authentic means for the citizens. The changes in the essay help are entirely done for the forms. Use is defined for the role of the terms with the implication for the hosting nature and vicinity for the comfort of humans.
