It’s been months and months of planning and hard work, but we’re finally proud to announce that in celebration of the clubs Centenary Season, we are set to present an unmissable collection of LUFC memorabilia. Featuring never seen before historic items and sporting objects brought together for the first time ever under one roof.
Supported by Leeds United Football Club and Leeds based creative marketing agency Banana Kick, the exclusive collection will explore Leeds United past and present. This unique collection tells the story of 100 years of unforgettable football following the players, managers and loyal Leeds supporters through the decades. This ultimate tribute to Leeds United includes a whole host of shirts some of which include Gary Speeds 91/92 title winning shirt, Tony Yeboah’s 95/96 famous volley scoring shirt, cup final shirts, an ultra-rare unreleased to the public all yellow Burton Shirt. The list is endless with other memorabilia including a full set of sock tags, historic match-day programmes, interactive displays and much, much more!
The Centenary Exhibition will be held in the Merrion Centre in Leeds City Centre, opposite the Leeds United Club Shop and will run from Saturday 26th October until Sunday 24th November. Fans are advised to avoid disappointment and buy tickets in advance as visiting slots are limited to allow fans the full experience – so a note to make sure that you book especially across half term and on the two match days.
Tickets are now on sale priced at £10 Adults, £5 Concessions and £20 for a family (based on 2 adults 2 children) which can be purchased here. As a valued member of the Leeds United Supporters’ Trust and fans alike, we’d like to off you a discount on tickets, this early bird code gives a 10 % discount across all ticket levels. EARLYBIRD10 - This code needs to be added to the promotional code box on the Eventbrite page and is now live until 23:59 on 8th October.
Every Thursday night during the exhibition tickets will also become available for our themed evening’s that will celebrate some of the great eras with special guests – more to follow. On Sunday 10th November, 1pm onwards, we will be holding a special “Antiques Roadshow” for fans who would like to attend the exhibition and bring along their own LUFC memorabilia to be valued by a panel of experts.
The exhibition is also proud to display the artwork of Andy McVeigh, AKA “The Burley Banksy”, who recently had his artwork commission by the Leeds United. Andy's work is instantly recognisable on the streets around Leeds United's ground, with his paintings on electric and broadband boxes depicting the club's iconic players, kits and slogans. Exclusive imagery of key moments will also be showcased by photographer Andrew Varley, whose work is also featured in one of the specially created Leeds United centenary books.
A special thank you goes to Ben Hunt, Dave Moorhouse, Andrew Varley, Marc Bracha, Paul Carroll, Tony Lazenby, Supporters Clubs, Adelites, Andy McVeigh and Frame Smart for their contributions of memorabilia and items which has made it possible to put on this amazing event.
I hope that you are as proud as we are that we’ve been able to work with other fans and historian to bring to life a special collection to celebrate our Centenary season.
