Elland Road Stadium has a special place in the history of English football. As the home of Leeds United since 1919 and a popular concert venue with names like U2, Queen and Rod Stewart taking the stage, there have always plenty of reasons to visit.
Leeds United’s performances at Elland Road Stadium and beyond led to FA Cup glory and European finals under legendary manager Don Revie. The club was struggling to stay in Division Two when Revie took over, guiding his men to the ranks of the finest teams in the world in the 1970s. After Revie, Brian Clough stepped in, but his tenure only lasted an eventful 44 days, documented in “The Damned United”, which was partly filmed in the stadium’s surroundings.
