Away Days - Travel Guide | Leeds United vs. Cardiff City
The Bluebirds visit Leeds United for our first away day of 2023/24...
Leeds is located in West Yorkshire, and the journey by car or coach from Cardiff City Stadium to the home of the Whites will take approximately four hours via the M50, M5, M42 and M1. The stadium postcode is LS11 0ES.
Cardiff City supporters should be aware of roadworks at Junction 2 of the M621, which could add up to 45 minutes to your journey. Please double check your travel plans in advance, and leave additional time if possible.
There is only one railway service on matchday that will reach Leeds in time for kick-off, departing Cardiff Central at 09:35. Travel to Bristol Parkway, then take the 10:40 train to Edinburgh (Waverley), arriving at Leeds at 14:03.
Leeds Railway Station is around a 35 minute walk from Elland Road. Supporters are advised to take a taxi or a shuttle bus from the city centre to Elland Road. More information about the shuttle bus service can be found here.
Elland Road has an overall capacity of 37,608, making it the third largest venue in the Sky Bet Championship this season.
The stadium has stands named after four Leeds United legends - the Don Revie Stand, the Jack Charlton Stand, the Norman Hunter Stand and the John Charles Stand.
Supporters aged 16 & under who are not accompanied by an adult will not be permitted entry to Elland Road. We advise Bluebirds fans to take a form of ID to the match, as you may be asked to provide proof of age at the turnstile.
Priced at £3.50, matchday programmes are available to buy from around the ground and in the Elland Road Superstore. Leeds boss Daniel Farke is the feature interviewee.
Our hosts will be paying tribute to those associated with Leeds United who have passed away since our final match of the 2022/23 campaign. There will be a moment of applause whilst names appear on the big screen ahead of kick-off.
Pies and Pints
Internal concourses in the away end offer a variety of food and drink options. Concourse bars will be open before and during the match.
There are no designated away pubs for this fixture. Howard's Bar, which has previously been allocated as an away fan bar in the past, has been designated for home fans only for this game.
