Leeds Are Going to the Premier League - Leeds United Season 2019-20 - Promotion in their Centenary Year!
Marcelo Bielsa achieved the dream for thousands of fans as Leeds United were promoted to the Premier League in their centenary year, after a 16-year exile. For Leeds fans, fantastic football displays on show to sell-out crowds’ home and away became the norm.
The emotional journey as a fan is captured by Heidi who as a home and away season ticket holder, relates the moments of this season in person. The Coronavirus lockdown threatened to put a dent in fans’ hopes when the season came to an abrupt halt in March.
When games resumed behind closed doors in June, Leeds United rose to the challenge, although it was a tense time with a three-horse race to victory. With two games left to play, Leeds were promoted and confirmed as Champions without playing, as results went their way.
Heidi Haigh's photos show fans who follow their team through thick and thin. This book is based on her popular blog shared around the world; Follow Me and Leeds United.
