Leeds have sold out their Championship clash against Newcastle on November 20, with just hospitality packages left – their first sell-out at Elland Road in over six years.
The club confirmed on its official Twitter account on Wednesday morning that, following a surge of interest, they have sold out their remaining tickets for the highly-anticipated encounter.
Elland Road, which can hold a capacity crowd of 39,460, re-opened numerous stands in the stadium to accommodate the high number of sales.
Newcastle away supporters have sold out their 2,764 ticket allocation for the Yorkshire trip, as the Championship giants meet for the first time in 12 years.

The Whites attracted a crowd of 38,232 in their FA Cup third round reply against Arsenal in 2011, with that mark now set to be surpassed.
The last time the Championship outfit put up the sold-out sign was in the final game of the 2009/10 season, in a League One fixture against Bristol Rovers which saw them promoted.
Fans can now look forward to an electric atmosphere against the in-form Magpies, who top the table with 34 points from 15 games following their relegation last season.
Garry Monk’s side are also flying high, in ninth with 23 points, one point adrift of the play-off places.
The former Premier League manager has the task of bringing the glory days back to Elland Road, to fans that haven’t tasted top-flight football for 12 years.
