About Leeds United

Leeds United is a club rich with incredible history and passionate fans; their arrival back to the top-flight of English football in 2020 under manager Marcelo Bielsa was a warm welcome for most football supporters. Founded in 1919, Leeds are known as ‘The Whites’ or ‘The Peacocks’ and have endured great success throughout their history - the Leeds faithful will be hoping to see more silverware added to their already fantastic collection.

The club’s last major trophy came in 1992, winning the final First Division Championship before it was rebranded as the Premier League. However, the Whites fans have not been treated to much success since and their recent return to top-flight football could be the sign of change.

Overall, Leeds have won three First Division titles and four Second Division Championships. Domestically, the club has won the FA Cup once - coming in the 1972 Final - and the League Cup also on one occasion back in 1968. The Whites also have two FA Community Shields to boast on their record.

In terms of European competitions, Leeds came ever-so close to winning the European Cup - now known as the Champions League - back in the 1974/75 campaign, losing to German giants Bayern Munich in the final. The club has also finished runners-up in the UEFA Cup Winners Cup, but has won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup twice in their history.

Having the privilege to play for a huge club like Leeds is something players should never take for granted. Club legends such as Jack Charlton and Gordon Strachan knew exactly what it was like to put on a Leeds shirt and demonstrated to the fans exactly what they were looking for.
