Premier League International Cup action on Tuesday.


Leeds United Under-21s continue their Premier League International Cup journey on Tuesday night, taking on German development side Hertha BSC Under-21s.

Under the lights of the LNER Community Stadium in York, the fixture will get underway at 7pm and supporters are still able to purchase tickets.

Unfortunately, due to broadcast restrictions, the game cannot be shown live on LUTV. Fans wishing to attend can see further information, below.

This will be a second game of the Group Stage for Michael Skubala’s side, who comfortably dispatched of OGC Nice Under-21s at Elland Road last month.

An exciting night in West Yorkshire to get the cup journey underway saw goals come from Charlie Allen and Sean McGurk, as the Whites ran out 2-0 winners.

The competition was introduced at the beginning of the 2014/15 season and features 12 of the Premier League 2 sides in England, who come up against 12 of the best Academy sides from across Europe, split into three groups.

Leeds United have been drawn in Group A, alongside PSV, Hertha BSC, Nice, Sparta Praha, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers.

The Premier League 2 teams do not face one another in the group stage and likewise, the European teams do not play each other either.

From the three groups, the top two advance directly to the knock-out stages, with the two best third place sides also advancing to the next round, which is the Quarter-Finals.

In the knock-out stage, all of the matches will be played in England in a one-off game with extra-time and penalties used if required, should the match be level after 90 minutes.

The current holders of the trophy are PSV Eindhoven, having won the competition by beating Crystal Palace in the final at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
