Location Information:

Elland Road is an all-seater football stadium in Beeston, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It has been the permanent residence of Leeds United A.F.C. since the club's foundation in 1919 and it was previously occupied by Leeds City.

The stadium is the 12th largest football stadium in England, and the second largest outside the Premier League (after Sheffield Wednesday's Hillsborough Stadium).
The ground has hosted FA Cup semi-final matches as a neutral venue, and England international fixtures, having been selected as one of eight Euro 96 venues.

Previously, Elland Road was home to Holbeck Rugby Club and although used primarily for football since the early 20th century, rugby league returned when the ground was used by the Hunslet Hawks for several seasons in the mid-1980s. The stadium has hosted concerts, including performances from rock bands Queen, U2, Happy Mondays and the Kaiser Chiefs.

Elland Road comprises four main stands – the Revie Stand, the East Stand, the South Stand and the John Charles Stand– which, together with the corners, bring the total capacity to 39,402. The record attendance of 57,892 was set on 15 March 1967 in an FA Cup 5th round replay against Sunderland. This was before the stadium became an all-seater venue as stipulated by the Taylor Report and the modern record is 40,287 for a Premiership match against Newcastle United on 22 December 2001
