Leeds United have been slammed for their ‘disgraceful’ away ticket price despite them being relegated from the Premier League.
Elland Road will be a Championship stadium again next season but travelling fans will be forced to pay a premium to support their team on the road.
After three years in the Premier League, where the ticket price for away days was capped at £30, the Whites have decided to charge more to see a lower level of football.
Leeds announced their away match ticket prices for the upcoming season, which will see Category A games priced at £47 for an adult, and Category B costing £45 an adult.

Away ticket prices for concessions are also higher than that of Premier League tickets, costing £32 for Category A and £31 for Category B.
Elland Road’s away end prices were shared on social media with one fan calling their prices an “absolute disgrace.”
What do you make of Leeds’ away ticket prices? Let us know in the comments section.
A second commented: “Championship clubs pay more for away days at Leeds than what PL fans would have had to.”
Whilst a third urged that the Football League should follow in the Premier League’s steps and introduce an away ticket cap, saying: “EFL need to adopt a similar approach as the PL. £30 cap.” Seeing another fan mention Reading’s previous ‘£20 is plenty’ campaign.
The pricing has also caused concern amongst the Leeds faithful that they will fall victim to similar prices on their away trips through retaliation, saying: “As a Leeds fan, this is disgraceful.
“This will also push up prices for our away games too, as they'll charge us the maximum they can. We should have priced them at £30 max.”
Leeds have had a quiet summer transfer window so far with new boss Daniel Farke yet to make any additions to the squad despite losing last season’s top scorer Rodrigo who joined Qatar side Al-Rayyan.
Rasmus Kristensen has also left Elland Road on loan to join AS Roma, whilst £24.7million signing Brenden Aaronson has joined Union Berlin on loan.
