Packed South For Promotion

Packed South For Promotion

Description: A packed South Stand here at Elland Road for the Football League First Division game against Bristol Rovers on the 8th May, 2010. The supporters in the South Stand were delivered a treat as the Mighty Whites gained promotion in the game with a win against the Pirates. 38,234 watched the game at the home of the White Gods and the crowd pushed United's average gate to number one spot in the division for the season.

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 overall 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.

Match report to follow.

Leeds United: Higgs, Lowry, Bromby, Collins, Doyle, Kilkenny, Johnson, Hughes, Gradel, Beckford, Becchio.
Subs: Howson for Lowry, Watt for Becchio, Snodgrass for Beckford.
