Upon arrival at the away coach park on Fullerton Car Park, stewards will direct you through the away access tunnel which leads you directly to the visiting supporters section of the ground where the away turnstiles and away fanzone is situated.

Access to the turnstiles is also available from Elland Road via the main West Stand gates next to the Ticket Office.


Security and bag searches will take place before entering the queuing system at the turnstiles. Searches will be conducted, and you may be requested to open your own bag to allow it to be searched.

The searching protocol for fans aged 16 or under is a different process to adults and only carried out whilst a parent, guardian or member of the club’s Wellbeing Team is present.


Bags larger than A4 in size will not be permitted. Unfortunately, there is no luggage storage facility at Elland Road.


The use of both cigarettes and all types of electronic cigarettes (including vapes) is not permitted anywhere inside Elland Road stadium. This includes all areas inside the stadium bowl, toilets, concourses, stairwells and bar areas.

Smoking of any kind is only permitted in designated smoking zones. Smoking zones are clearly signposted and smoking is only permitted in the designated smoking zones at half time.


Entrance 1 and 2 are the designated turnstiles for visiting supporters to enter the ground on matchday with a valid ticket. Depending on the ticket allocation, away supporters may also use Howards Entrance as a stadium entry point. Visiting disabled supporters who have purchased accessible seats enter the stadium by Exit W1 gate.

We would strongly advise visiting supporters not to travel to Elland Road on matchdays without a valid matchday ticket.

Turnstiles open 90 minutes prior to kick off.


Visiting Supporters are seated within the South Side of the John Charles West Stand in the Upper and Lower tiers (dependent on ticketing allocations).


The away ticket office is located adjacent to the away turnstiles (entrance 1 & 2) and opens 90 minutes prior to kick off.


This is located just adjacent from the away turnstiles in the West Stand car park and cordoned off for away supporters to access. A selection of food and drink (alcoholic and non alcoholic) is available.

The Fan Zone is the perfect place to build the atmosphere in the build up to the match. The Away Fan Zone is open for all home first team fixtures and opens 2 hours prior to kick off and can also be accessed at half time.


We are happy for visiting fans to bring their flags to Elland Road providing they have the correct certificates. Please see contact details below.

Small handheld banners and flags will be allowed through the turnstiles on a matchday and will be checked by the stewards on entry - any flags that are deemed to contain offensive content will be confiscated.

Larger flags (1 meter) will need to be pre-authorised by the club in order to comply with ground health and safety regulations. No poles will be allowed inside the stands at Elland Road. Any flag over the dimensions of 5ft by 3ft would be classed as an extra-large flag and these must strictly be agreed in advance with the Club. Also any flags which are on a wooden pole are not permitted to be brought into Elland Road.

Any flags over 1x1m must carry a fire rated certificate. For further information regarding flags inside the stadium, please contact our Head of Matchday Safety & Security Laura Strong or Deputy Safety Officer Diane Ingleby


Supporters are reminded that Elland Road is a cashless stadium and only card payment will be accepted at food and drink outlets inside the stadium.


Several food and drink options are available at locations around the stadium and inside of the stadium. Alcohol is served at every kiosk but cannot be taken into seating areas in the stadium seating bowl.


Matchday programmes can be purchased from programme sellers located at various points around the stadium. Payment is by cash only, with programmes priced at £3.50.
