The West Yorkshire side have been slammed for their decision to charge the travelling fans as much as £39, which is the most expensive set by all of the clubs in the division.
The Royals take on Whites at Elland Road on Saturday the 22nd of February but the chances of a big following up north are very slim due to the ticket prices.
An adult ticket costs £39, while those aged 65 and over and 19-22 have to pay £26. Those aged 16 to 18 are charged £20 while 11-15 year olds get in for £18. Kids aged 10 and under cost £9.
?️ Tickets for our trip to @LUFC on Saturday 22nd Feb will go on sale at 9am on Tuesday 11th ?️
General Area prices:
65 & Over: £26
10 & Under: £9

Supporters of the Berkshire side are more annoyed at the fact that tickets at Leeds is £19 more expensive than away tickets at Madejski Stadium, set at £20 – part of the #Twentysplenty campaign.
Reading fans took to social media raging at Leeds United for the sky high ticket prices, see what they had to say…
Charge #lufc £40 next year when we play them, which we will when the wheels come off completely, then subsidise our fans who travel away. The club takes it £20 and the irony would be that Leeds fans actually pay 1/2 the cost for the away fans…awesome

Don’t understand why we don’t increase the pricing when Leeds come to Mad Stad

Twenty’s plenty for all except Leeds next season then. Cos we know we’ll still be playing them next season. They’re a disgrace. Well done all the decent clubs signed up to not screw away fans. At Cardiff last week (in the league) for £19, so fair play to them.

Wouldn’t call it pathetic I’d say average. Take plenty to teams down south and london etc and average up north. We’re not exactly a massive town now are we

Tickets for away fans should be capped at the appropriate price at each tier of English football, 20s plenty is just right for championship football after train tickets, lunch and maybe a swift pint or two, then league one and two can cap their prices to say £18 & £15 accordigly.

How are the EFL still letting away fans get charged £39 by Leeds. Useless

Absolute disgrace, yet again. Worst offenders in division. Twenty is plenty.

@RossMT96: Haha disgusting behaviour from @LUFC
@markharding1988: £39?! That is utterly disgraceful. I’m glad I’m not remotely interested in going.
@1ntrepidtravel: Ridiculous prices.
@m1c4hE19: That’s absolutely absurd
@alexxmitchy: Every year I say I’ll go do Leeds away and then when prices are released I remember why I’ve never been
@RFCbilly_: Leeds still think their famous with those ticket prices, fact is they’re irrelevant now and can’t get into the premier league because they specialise at bottling promotion
@QasimAmin2: £39 a ticket @LUFC are disgusting
@OllyAllen_: A reminder that #ReadingFC charged Leeds fans a maximum of £20 a ticket back in November. I have no idea how these ridiculous prices can be justified. There’s a £30 cap in the Premier League.
