Leeds fined by FA after fan push on Newcastle’s Howe


When a fan shoved Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe during the Premier League game at Elland Road in May, the FA announced Monday that Leeds United had received a 40,000-pound ($48,924) fine.

Following the 2-2 tie on May 13, Leeds sentenced the supporter to 12 weeks in jail and a lifetime ban.

Leeds received a warning about their behavior moving forward, the FA stated in a statement, with the suspension of 20,000 pounds of the fine until the conclusion of the 2024–25 season.

“Leeds United admitted that they failed to ensure their spectators … conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and don’t use words or behavior that are improper, offensive, violent, threatening, abusive, insulting, or provocative,” the Football Association stated.

Leeds United is more than just a football club; it’s a way of life for its dedicated supporters. While recent events have generated headlines, it’s crucial to remember that the heart and soul of Leeds United lies in the unwavering passion of its fans. Their commitment and love for the club transcend mere victories and defeats, making Leeds United a symbol of footballing devotion that will continue to shine brightly in sports.
