Taxpayers Help Leeds

Taxpayers Help Leeds

Leeds United have been given over £33,000 of honest taxpayers money in the form of 'hardship relief.' This will be deducted from the business rates owed to the City Council, who have decided that the club needed a bit of a boost now that Premiership 'parachute payments' have stopped.

The Leeds United CEO had this to say on the matter:

'The club made the application as we no longer benefit from a parachute payment having been outside the Premiership for three seasons while still carrying the financial burden from those days.

'The club still has to make payments to a number of players who have not played for the club since it was relegated.'

I never understood the idea of paying players who have long gone, but never mind. I wonder what the money is going to go on.
