Managing Director speaks about report.
Following the release of a report from Leeds City Council recommending formal discussions with the Club regarding the development of a new training centre, academy and community sports village at Elland Road, Leeds United Managing Director Angus Kinnear has spoken about how important it is for the Whites to be at the heart of our local community.
Kinnear said: “We thank Leeds City Council for their consideration, we have an ambitious vision for Elland Road and the surrounding area as a centre for elite development and a thriving community sports hub.
"Our Partners at the local Council fully understand the extent of the impact a successful Leeds United can have on our city and that any progress we make will be done so in consultation with the local community.”
The topic is set to be discussed by senior councillors next week and approval of the recommendations in the report will lead to the Council and the Club opening talks regarding the former Matthew Murray High School site in south Leeds as well as the Fullerton Car Park at Elland Road.
