Helens and the ground was put on the market. After a meeting at the Griffin Hotel in Boar Lane in August, a new club, Leeds City, was formed and it was agreed that the Elland Road ground would be rented for the upcoming season.
An expansion programme continued and the club's directors ensured that the initial success was built upon, employing a "ground committee" to oversee developments.
The committee built a 4,seater grandstand which the Lord Mayor , Joseph Hepworth , unveiled before a match against Chelsea on 17 November.
There was a training track for the players that ran the length of the stand, dressing and officials rooms and a motor garage.
Drainage work was carried out on the pitch to prevent it from becoming waterlogged. The ground was used during the Great War as a venue for drill and shooting practice until the —20 season commenced.
City started that season brightly, but scandal arose involving illegal payments to players during the war years and the club was expelled from the Football League after only eight games.
This led some local businessmen to contemplate digging up the clay deposits under the pitch and turning Elland Road into a brickyard. Yorkshire Amateurs became the tenants , and that club played there for a brief spell saving the ground from development.
In the s, the South Stand terrace was covered with a wooden barrel -shaped roof and came to be known as the Scratching Shed.
Another stand was built on the east side terracing called the Lowfields. Behind the goal at the north end was a terrace known as the Spion Kop, or simply Kop, from a hill in South Africa on which British soldiers lost their lives in the Battle of Spion Kop , in January , in the Boer War.
No significant changes were made to Elland Road in the s, and s, although it did see some large attendances.
On 27 December , 56, spectators attended for the visit of eventual champions Arsenal — a record that would last for almost 35 years.
The last game of that season saw Leeds play Middlesbrough at home in front of a 9, spectators. The stadium was chosen to host the all city of Leeds Rugby Football League Championship Final between Leeds and Hunslet in , when a crowd of 54, saw Hunslet win the title.
The game attracted 31, spectators who saw two goals each from John Charles and manager Raich Carter as Leeds beat the Scottish side 4—1.
It was the first of several Monday night games against teams from north of the border and in successive weeks, Dundee and Falkirk were the visitors to Elland Road.
In the early hours of Tuesday 18 September , a fire gutted the West Stand and scorched large sections of the pitch. The blaze consumed the entire structure, including offices, kit , club records , physiotherapy equipment, dressing rooms, directors' rooms, the press box and the generators for the floodlighting system.
The players helped clear rubble and wreckage but the 2,seater stand could not be salvaged. After a board meeting, the directors decided to launch a public appeal to build a new stand with assistance from Leeds City Council.
The new stand had of 4, seats mounted behind a paddock, which could hold a 6, standing spectators. Fortunately, Cyril Williamson, the club secretary, and several directors were on hand and the fire was extinguished and no significant damage was caused.
The s saw the arrival of Don Revie as manager and the club were promoted to the First Division. The club finished in the top four places for the next ten seasons and Elland Road hosted its first televised game — a league fixture against Everton on 20 March — and Leeds were 4—1 winners.
Great advances were made on the stadium during Revie's reign and a new attendance record of 57, was set on 15 March , in a fifth-round replay of the FA Cup against Sunderland.
The roofed structure was built in less than six weeks and became known as the Gelderd End. This state of the art development comprised a standing paddock capable of holding 4, fans, a row of 16 executive boxes, above which was an all-seater 3, capacity stand.
Plans to link the South Stand with the Lowfields were curtailed when Leeds ran out of money. Initially, three floodlights were erected — two at either side of the Kop and another in the South-West corner — and the other was erected four years later.
Ambitious plans to improve the stadium and neighbouring sporting facilities were designed in by Newcastle upon Tyne architects and promoted by developers Baltic Consortium and W.
None of the designs were acted on. In September , the South-East corner was opened, joining the South and Lowfields Stands providing a full corner stand for away supporters.
This section was used as the "family stand" until membership proved too big for its 1, capacity and a new home found in the East Stand. It is prominent because of its yellow seats, which have given its nickname, the "cheese wedge".
A banqueting suite at the rear of the west stand, with a conference centre , was opened in April The East Stand was then the biggest cantilever stand in the world.
For the season Elland Road became an all-seater stadium, with nearly 7, seats replacing the terracing in the Kop, as directed by the Taylor Report.
On 16 November , the third and deciding match of the Super League Test series between Great Britain and Australia was played at Elland Road before a crowd of 39, A new structure mirroring the East Stand would have seated around 12, people.
A three-tier structure would focus on hospitality with a 15,seater indoor arena at the rear of the West Stand.
This venue would have accommodated basketball, ice hockey , pop concerts and other events. However, after naming an ice hockey team, Leeds Lasers, to play at the arena, the project was shelved.
Earlier plans to create a 65,seater "Wembley of the North" at Elland Road also failed to materialise. On 16 August , chairman Peter Ridsdale sent a letter to season ticket holders and shareholders regarding the future of the club outlining two options, to improve Elland Road or to relocate.
A ballot form was included but the letter was biased in favour of relocation. On 7 September , Ridsdale announced his intention to move the club to a 50,seat stadium at Skelton in time for the —05 season.
Later that year, Elland Road was sold with a year lease and buy-back clause to raise funds to pay an instalment of a loan to Jack Petchey.
It emerged on 27 December that the stadium had been sold to the British Virgin Islands -based Teak Trading Corporation 15 months before.
In summer , the South Stand was updated and closed for the first few games of the —07 season while work was completed.
The refurbishment included boxing in the concrete columns and alcoves; overhaul of the kitchen concourse area, a mezzanine -level office area, modernisation of the corporate facilities above and a restaurant, Billy's Bar, named after former club captain Billy Bremner.
Plans for development at Elland Road to include hotels, a shopping centre and health club were featured in the programme for the match against Huddersfield Town on 8 December There would be hotels on the site of the shop.
On 16 December , the host cities and stadia to be used if England won the right to host the World Cup were revealed. Leeds was chosen and had the bid have been successful the John Charles and Don Revie stands would have been rebuilt, leading to increased capacity of over 50, however this never happened due to England not hosting the World Cup.
On 28 December , chairman Ken Bates spoke about future plans to increase the capacity of the South Stand in the future by around 2—3, This would be achieved by removing the executive boxes and replacing them with seating, however, this work was never started due to Ken Bates selling the club in In March , the East Stand Development began phase one of a five-phase redevelopment project which included an extension to the East Stand Upper's main concourse along with the addition of 25 executive boxes and a modern upgrade to the external appearance of the stand; whilst this created extra corporate facilities and more room on the concourse, it in-turn reduced the East Stand Upper's capacity by around 2, seats, thus leaving the overall capacity of the ground to stand at just under 38, seats.
In July the club announced a number of internal and external improvements were in the process of being made to Elland Road to improve the general appearance of the stadium.
The improvements consisted of a partial new roof and cladding on the West Stand, banners on either side of the East Stand, South Stand and North East Corner of the ground featuring Leeds United legends past and present.
In addition, the inside of the West Stand, dressing rooms and hospitality suites all underwent cosmetic improvement. The Don Revie Stand is at the north end of the ground.
It was previously known as the Gelderd End or Kop and was originally a standing terrace, it was renamed in in honour of the club's most successful manager and former player, Don Revie.
Revie, the widow of Don Revie. The design has 7, seats as stipulated by the Taylor Report , making Elland Road an all-seater stadium.
There is a "ground control box" in the north-west corner which is the most advanced in Europe. Images and video footage are obtained by the security cameras located around the ground.
The East Stand is the most recently constructed stand in the stadium. On completion, it was the largest cantilever stand in the world, holding 10, spectators in the lower tier and a further 7, in the upper tier.
The family area was moved from the South Stand and originally spanned the full lower tier; however, this was altered by Ken Bates and there are now two sections, one at either end of the lower tier for club members and season ticket holders attending matches with children.
Sandwiched in between are 25 executive boxes and a large concourse with merchandise outlets, food shops, betting booths and a restaurant.
It comprises two small tiers intersected with a row of 32 executive boxes and an executive restaurant. There are a few seats in the South-West Corner, and a large video screen for the —10 season.
In summer , the stand was redeveloped and closed for the first few games of the —07 season. The refurbishment included boxing in the concrete columns and alcoves to give the stand a more modern exterior; an overhaul of the kitchen concourse area; a mezzanine -level office area; a total modernisation of the corporate facilities above and a restaurant called Billy's Bar, named after former captain Billy Bremner.
On 23 April the club announced that the stand would be named after Norman Hunter , who had died on 20 April. The John Charles Stand is on the west side of the pitch and was known as the West Stand until the fans demanded a tribute to former player John Charles , following his death on 21 February It is currently the oldest two-tiered stand at Elland Road, having been built in after the previous stand burnt down, ironically forcing Charles' sale as the club needed the funds to pay for a new stand.
The corporate seats are located here and there is a commentary gantry and walkway for TV personnel.
The radio and press have facilities in this stand. The West Stand houses the tunnel and the directors' box, where home and away team directors view the match, along with the club doctor.
There are many suites incorporated within the stand and a banqueting suite and conference centre are attached to the rear, having been opened in April Future plans would see the John Charles Stand redeveloped to hold a two-floored, three-tiered square metre site.
This redevelopment of the West Stand would see a new upper tier introduced along with executive boxes as part of the ambitions of turning Elland Road into a stadium further capable of hosting world class matches and events; however it is now unlikely that any redevelopment of the west stand will take place due to change of club ownership who did not go ahead with the plans.
However, the first time the club used it, the pitch turned black as the water was too cold. A statue for legendary Captain Billy Bremner was built outside the ground in As part of the renovation towards the Bremner statue to take place in the summer of , the following team was voted by the fans as 11 Legendary players including Billy Bremner.
They were described as '10 legend stones' in the area around the famous statue. Each stone will be engraved with the legends keys stats and achievements during their career's with Leeds United.
In August , when Leeds were still a leading Premier League side, chairman Peter Ridsdale unveiled plans for the club to relocate to a 50,seat stadium in Skelton.
The following month, the club's 33, season ticket holders were asked to vote on the proposed relocation. More recently in October , Leeds United's managing director Angus Kinnear suggested that Elland Road's capacity could be expanded to 50, should they be promoted to the Premier League.
Elland Road has hosted FA Cup semi-final matches as a neutral venue on nine occasions, the first being a tie between Barnsley and Everton on 26 March and the last on 9 April in a game between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.
Hull City in , Birmingham City v. Sunderland in , West Bromwich Albion v. Bolton Wanderers in , Charlton Athletic v.
Newcastle United in , Newcastle United v. Pictures show the extra capacity would come from a raised West Stand to match the height of the East Stand.
You notice that is a far cry from the Beeston we see today. While nothing formal has been put in motion, Kinnear spoke with an outlook on the future for the club and where it may head next with its developments.
