Leeds United plan stadium casino
Leeds United are looking to build a casino at their Elland Road ground.
The football club are one of five venues in the city to have applied for a large casino licence and have already held initial discussions with several potential operating partners, with further talks set to follow.
The casino would cover around 3,500 square meters across two floors and would form part of the club’s planned development of their West Stand.
The updated stand would also include a new upper tier and executive boxes, while planning consent has already been granted for a possible hotel development at the stadium.
Leeds United chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “The potential of the casino coming to Leeds United is an exciting one and fits perfectly within our business plan of increasing revenue streams on non-match days, both in isolation and to compliment either our existing facilities or those that are planned.”
