Supporter flags to feature pre-match…
Leeds United are to allow the return of supporter flags into the North and South Stands before each game.
The club are looking to create a unique pre-match atmosphere with a sea of Leeds United flags on display in the stands behind both goals and create a visual spectacle whilst our supporters sing famous club anthem ‘Marching on Together.’
Small handheld banners and flags will be allowed through the turnstiles in the North and South Stands on a matchday and will be checked by the turnstile operators on entry - any flags that are deemed to contain offensive content will be confiscated.
Larger flags will need to be pre-authorised by the club in order to comply with ground health and safety regulations. Likewise all poles must be made of hollow plastic and be collapsible, no wooden sticks will be allowed inside 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 and will be stored at Elland Road. These extra large flags will be made available pre match to registered supporters to wave their own flags to help create a fantastic atmosphere before the referee’s first whistle.
All flags must carry a fire rated certificate.
We hope that this inititiative will be well received by our fans and supporter groups alike.
