Description: The Executive suites pictured here splitting the East Stand at Elland Road. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road on the 1st September, 2012. The introduction of the new executive boxes in the East Stand meant around 1,500 seats had to be removed which temporarily reduces the capacity at Elland Road to just under 38,000.

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, Lees, Pearce, Drury, Diouf, Austin, Norris, Varney, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Byram/Varney.
