'Absolute joke', 'Seriously falling out with it' – Leeds fans fume at latest official club news
Leeds United announced a price freeze on season tickets for the 18/19 season on Monday but fans weren’t particularly impressed with the move.
Leeds announced the news on their official Twitter page on Monday morning, saying that existing season ticket holders wouldn’t pay any more for next season as long as they renew by March 30.
???? | Leeds United are delighted to announce a price freeze on Season Tickets for the 2018/19 campaign, for existing Season Ticket Holders

If they were hoping for thanks from the Leeds regulars though, they had another think coming.
One fan said that they’d waited until they knew they weren’t getting promoted before announcing they were going to carry on charging “stupidly high prices” to watch “mediocre” football.
And loads of fans were annoyed by the March 30 deadline which means they would have to lock in before they knew what was happening at the end of the season.
Another fan sarcastically replied that he was “delighted” that season tickets would remain expensive.
Here are the best reactions from annoyed Leeds fans after the news had been announced.
Now they know that we more than likely wont be making the play offs they are delighted to keep charging existing loyal customers stupidly high prices to watch mediocre football. Nice one Leeds ????

Who's paying up to £710??? … Seriously mate that's a joke.. just pricing people out.. you could easily fill your ground if you offered them at say £350

It's been getting filled well this season anyway but the prices for the standard of football is scandalous

Renew by 30th March???? What a joke. The team is nowhere near the standard of last year and we have to stump up before this season has even finished????

Cheaper season ticket last season and again this season! Wht an absolute joke! Thinking I’m not going to bother. I was well happy getting it at the reduced rate but I don’t think I should be paying the same again this year Where is my loyalty reward? Seriously falling out with it
