There are only nine vital games left for Leeds United and potential promotion to the Premier League is at stake. With that in mind, the Leeds United Supporters' Trust has come together with the support of key fan groups, media and influencers to stress the importance of fans staying away from football grounds while key matches are being played behind closed doors.
Today (Saturday 13th June) the campaign - which encourages fans to #StayAway, #RespectOurNorman and #ProtectPromotion - launched with the backing of some famous faces including Vinnie Jones, Kaiser Chiefs Bassist Simon Rix (The Trust President) and Phil Hay alongside the real stars - the amazing A&E staff from Leeds Teaching Hospital.
During the run-up to each game, the Trust will release a new video featuring more famous faces connected with the club, to ensure the message stressing the importance of staying away from grounds is reiterated to fans to continue respecting the NHS and fellow fans.
Pete Emmerson, the Leeds United Supporters' Trust Chair said "I know we are all desperate to get back to Elland Road and watch live football, but these are unprecedented circumstances and we have to respect the club, the players and most importantly the memory of Norman Hunter."
"With plenty of the games on Sky, coverage on LUTV and our favourite Leeds media outlets giving :ive commentary - there are no Excuses - '#StayAway".The Trust's campaign has the backing of other key groups and influencers including Marching Out Together, LUDO, Leeds United Supporters Club, LUSCOS, The SLI, The Square Ball, Talking Shutt, LS11 and All Leeds TV.
