Leeds United FC has turned to peer-to-peer transport provider Uber to help it reduce congestion and address the transport challenges around its Elland Road stadium.

The pair have signed a partnership deal which will see Uber encourage fans not to drive to the stadium but to leave their cars at home and use the Uber app to connect to public transport options.

Reducing private car use and peak congestion in and around Elland Road has been a key operational concern for the club for some time.

Leeds United managing director Angus Kinnear said: "Getting to and from the stadium will now be a seamless experience and we’re exploring ways to make help fans travel for away games as well.

"Leaving the area after a game in private cars can lead to congestion and long wait times, so this deal will really help cut down congestion in the area."

Tom Elvidge, general manager UK, Uber said: "We’re delighted to be working with Leeds United and have some very ambitious plans to help them create the best fan experience possible, while helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality.

"Uber provides a great option for people travelling to games as they don’t have to worry about parking and can enjoy a drink or two. As a Leeds fan I can't wait for my next trip to Elland Road."
