Leeds wait on Chelsea before announcing friendly

Leeds wait on Chelsea before announcing friendly

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says the club are awaiting the result of the Champions League final in Munich on Saturday night between Bayern Munich and Chelsea before they can announce their pre-season game at Elland Road on Friday August 10th.

Chelsea travel to face Munich knowing that a win would see them clinch the final Champions League place ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, who finished fourth in the Premier League.

Tottenham would then drop into the Europa League alongside Newcastle United, Everton and Liverpool, who will all have qualifiers to reach the group stage of the competition, as would Chelsea in the Champions League.

Bates would not say who the chosen opposition is but says they will make an announcement once they know the outcome on Saturday. Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, "We have to wait to see if Chelsea win or lose in Munich. If they win then the top three in the Premier League will be in the Champions League and the fourth placed club will move down to the Europa League.

"We have attentively agreed to play Premier League opposition the Friday before the season starts, so we will have to wait until we can announce who we are playing.

"Apart from that, we are reasonably well advanced, with one or two more games to be fitted in."


Leeds have so far confirmed four games during pre-season. They will play three games in Devon and Cornwall during a five-day stay in the South-West.

They will face Tavistock on Monday July 23rd, Bodmin on Wednesday July 25th and Torquay United on Friday July 27th.

Leeds will then travel to Norway to face Sandejford in Oslo on Wednesday August 1st.

Neither Leeds or Burton Albion are yet to confirm a pre-season friendly between the two sides on Tuesday August 7th at the Pirelli Stadium despite Burton chairman Ben Robinson talking about the fixture in last week`s Burton Mail.
