Swansea City head to Elland Road on Wednesday night to face Leeds United. Here is our handy guide to help and improve your matchday experience.

Leeds United v Swansea City

Date: Wednesday, February 13

Kick off: 7.45pm

Address: Elland Road, Leeds, LS11 0ES

Distance from the Liberty: 253.9 miles


Up to 3,000 away fans are housed on one side of the John Charles Stand (towards the South Stand) in the upper tier, where you can enjoy excellent facilities.

There are some obstructed views in the top tier of the away section, but there is a clear view from the lower tier.

Food on offer includes burgers and a selection of pies.


There are entrances to two large car parks just outside the stadium, where you can leave your vehicle for £6. It is recommended that you use Car Park A to ensure a quicker getaway after the game.


From Swansea, the journey to Leeds Railway Station takes approximately five-and-a-half hours on average. The station is around a 35-minute walk from Elland Road so it is recommended that you make your way there via a taxi or shuttle bus, with the latter costing £2.50 for a return journey.

Trains leave at 29 and 55 minutes past the hour between 10.30am and 12.30pm. However, there are no return journeys after the game, so an overnight stay will be required.
