Leeds United will be showing their support for Green Football Weekend over the next few days with only a short amount of time left until the winner of the Green Football Cup is decided.

Football supporters across the country are all taking part in the Green Football Cup, and we would like as many Leeds United fans as possible to continue scoring green goals to help the club climb the league and in turn help to protect our world.

Some of the climate-friendly actions you can get involved in include downloading the Green Football Weekend Veggie Cookbook, trying a vegetarian meal, leaving the car at home and using reusable bottles. Fans can choose whichever they want, all they need to do is register and track their goals at

Leeds United travel away from home to Bristol City on Friday during the Green Football Weekend campaign and we are encouraging as many fans as possible travelling to Ashton Gate Stadium to try some of the vegetarian and plant-based options they have on offer. In the away end concourse fans can try the Cheese and Onion Pasty (vegetarian) instead of a meat option, whilst in the Fan Village there are a number of options, including falafel gyros, churros, chips (all plant-based), and halloumi gyros (vegetarian), and lastly there is a range of items available in the Kofi Lounge on request such as jacket potatoes, fruit pots, smoothies and vegan milkshakes.

The Fan Village and Kofi Lounge can both be used by away supporters ahead of the game on Friday evening, and for any further information including the locations, please click here.

The first-team squad, along with Leeds United Women, will also be wearing green armbands during their warm-ups for their matches over the weekend, to show their support for the national campaign.

The future of football is at risk due to the effects of climate change, with 150,000 games already cancelled per year due to pitch flooding. By 2050, a quarter of UK football grounds will be flooded, with one in four teams expecting partial or total stadium flooding each year.

But when fans and clubs come together to take action, football has this incredible power to help protect our world.  If the UK’s football fans ate one veggie meal a day, it would save as much carbon as taking 5.5 million cars off the road.
