Leeds United have decided to scrap plans to build a new training facility close to Elland Road and will instead focus on increasing their stadium’s capacity.
The Whites’ intention to move from their Thorp Arch training centre to a location just off the M621 had received support from Leeds City Council. The new base would have cost around £25million. It had also been agreed that they could increase Elland Road’s capacity from 39,000 to 50,000.
Plans to expand Elland Road were first revealed back in 2019 by Managing Director Angus Kinnear. That was as part of the club’s centenary celebrations.
However, the club have now revised their ideas and will look to increase the size of their home ground to 55,000 instead.
