Whatever generation, the story of the 1975 Champions League final is ingrained into Leeds United tradition. That night in Paris, the ref, and the song that has been worn as a badge of honour ever since. The name might not be on the trophy, but we are.
Leeds have today announced a legends game against Bayern Munich in late March.
Amongst the Leeds side will be, according to the club website: “several players from the Champions League era including Olivier Dacourt, Lee Bowyer, Eirik Bakke, Ian Harte, Gary Kelly and Danny Mills plus key players from our League One promotion winning campaign including Jermaine Beckford, Luciano Becchio, Andy Hughes and the gaffer Simon Grayson will also be taking part”. This side will be managed by Howard Wilkinson and David O’Leary.
Tickets are available now for season ticket holders who have the chance to claim their own seat and then there will be a window for further sales after for non-season ticket holders.
This all forms part of the club’s centenary celebrations.
