That’s Champion: Leeds Legend Strachan Returns to Elland Road

LEEDS UNITED fans will have a unique opportunity to relive the glory days when club legend Gordon Strachan returns to Elland Road for a glittering dinner that will mark the 25th anniversary of the team winning the title during the 1991-92 season.

Both individual tickets and tables are already selling fast for the event, which will be held in The Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road on Friday 4th November 2016, just a week before the current Scotland manager prepares to take on England in a World Cup qualifying match. 

During the event, Gordon will talk about the special times he enjoyed captaining Leeds United to the league title and what it felt like to deny the team’s arch-rivals Manchester United, as well as his former boss Alex Ferguson, who finished as runners-up. 

There will also be a three course dinner served, followed by entertainment by a renowned comedian.

A spokesperson from event organiser Events in the City, said: “It’s hard to believe 25 years have passed since Leeds United last lifted a trophy and this will be a great opportunity for Leeds fans to relive lots of the memorable moments with Gordon from that amazing season. 

“The fact it takes place a week before the England vs Scotland game will also make it a special occasion and I’m sure the Leeds fans will have plenty to say about that as well!”

The event starts at 7pm, with dinner served at 8pm. The remaining tickets are £55 per person or £500 for a table of 10. Anyone wanting to reserve places should call 07585 002386 or email office@eventsinthecity.co.uk.

  1. Rob, ITV4 at 8pm tonight might be worth a look! #lastchampions


    • Thanks mate, I’ll check it out.


      • Rob, the programme on ITV4 at 8pm tonight, is very good apparently.
        It’s called “When Football Changed Forever” and features quite a lot of Leeds in the 1991-92 season.
        I haven’t seen it yet, but a friend of mine watched it last Wednesday on ITV4 and said it’s definitely worth watching.


  2. Strachan back at Elland Road. Will he fit in our
    midfield now?
