Supporters' Trust to host event at Elland Road.
After months of championing safe standing, the Leeds United Supporters’ Trust will be hosting the Safe Standing Roadshow in conjunction with Leeds United and Jon Darch at Elland Road and you're invited!
The roadshow follows on from the EFL and Football Supporters’ Federation’s ‘Stand up for Choice’ survey, which will poll supporters across the Football League over whether they are in favour of re-introducing safe standing at games.

Jon Darch is the campaigner who runs the Safe Standing Roadshow promoting rail seats as safer seating for standing fans in current all-seater stadia.
The event will be held in the Gowing Law Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road on Tuesday 15th May from 7:00pm and the evening will involve a Q&A with Jon and the opportunity to test authentic rail seating.
The event is open and free to all supporters, but to attend, you will need to sign up in advance.
Trust board member Chris Hunter said: “We are delighted to be hosting a Safe Standing Roadshow in conjunction with Leeds United Football Club and Jon Darch.
“This is an issue we’ve been championing with our members for quite some time and will continue to do so.
“We’re now looking forward to finding out more and inviting fans along to test the authentic rail seating.”
Leeds United managing director Angus Kinnear said: “We are delighted to welcome the Roadshow to Elland Road - one of the most traditional football grounds in England.
“We want our supporters to view games in the most enjoyable way possible, as long as safety is ensured and we applaud the Leeds United Supporters' Trust and their efforts.”
Jon Darch, Lead Safe Standing campaigner added: “I’m very much looking forward to demonstrating rail seats at Elland Road and hope that plenty of people come along to ask questions and experience for themselves just how safe it is to stand behind the seats’ waist-high rails.”
