The Leeds United Supporter Advisory Board held their most recent meeting towards the end of September to discuss a number of different topics.

Leeds United CEO Angus Kinnear was in attendance at the monthly meeting, to give an update around club and stadium matters, and let those also who were in attendance both in person and on Zoom, that the 49ers takeover is now complete. Angus went on to discuss the football side of the business, and how Daniel Farke, his backroom staff, and the new players are all settling in with plenty of work being done in the background to ensure the training ground has the best possible environment for them all to continue developing and growing together.

Another big topic of discussion was focused on stadium redevelopment, which will be a key focus for the 49ers both in terms of housekeeping improvements and then looking at the new stands. Angus assured it was an ongoing process and that fan consultation will play a big part as any progress is made.

Some of the other topics also discussed during the meeting included matchday events and campaigns, the Disabled Supporter Advisory Board, looking into a Junior Supporter Advisory Board, feedback from recent games in terms of supporter behaviour, ticket sale dates which are controlled by the EFL, membership packs and the Park and Ride system.

Laura Strong, the club’s Head of Matchday Safety and Security, also attended the meeting to give an update around safety matters in and outside the stadium, including feedback from the recent Sports Ground Safety Authority visit, which was very positive in terms of how much has changed over the past year, but they also acknowledged that there is still work to be done.

The full minutes from the meeting will be reviewed at the October meeting and then published online.
