Smoother and quicker entry to the stadium for 37,640 fans

92 access control readers upgraded

Convenient e-ticketing solution for fewer printed tickets – a benefit for the environment

For the 2022/23 season, Leeds United is moving to digital tickets in collaboration with SKIDATA and SeatGeek. For both the stadium operator and the fans, e-ticketing has many benefits, such as quicker entrance, enhanced security and increased protection against fraud. Digital ticketing is an easy and flexible way for fans to get their tickets.

Leeds United have a long history of success and have won the biggest trophies in domestic football. Elland Road is home to Leeds United with an impressive capacity of 37, 640. The site also boasts an onsite conference and events venue capable of hosting a wide range of large-scale events.


With the start of the 2023 season, fans will be able to digitally download their ticket to their Google or Apple wallet. There are several improvements that will help the matchday experience run much more smoothly. Not only will ticket purchases be easier, but entry to the stadium will be quicker and smoother. The environment will also benefit as fewer tickets will need to be printed and collected on match day.
Leeds United has been working with SKIDATA for almost 20 years now. It is therefore pleasing that Leeds United and SKIDATA are entering into a new 5-year partnership, until 2027. SKIDATA is the official access control partner at Elland Road, providing the best hardware, the new e-ticketing solution and support. An important element of the new agreement is the comprehensive upgrade of all 92 access control readers here at Elland Road.

“We are delighted to be partnered with SKIDATA for the next five years as we look to upgrade entry to the stadium on the matchday experience using SKIDATA’s e-ticketing solution.”

Angus Kinnea, Chief Executive Leeds United
