these are the items you are banned from taking in Elland road

Some of the items on the list are fairly obvious, while other may come as a little bit of a surprise.

A statement on the Leeds United website says: "Fireworks, flares, smoke canisters, air horns, knives, bottles, glasses, cans, poles and any article that might be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety will not be allowed inside the ground.

"The club management reserves the right to refuse admission or eject from the ground anyone who refuses to be searched by any member of staff or agent of the club or any police officer."

Meanwhile, there are certain behaviours that are strictly forbidden while inside the home of the Whites.

Most of the things on this list are basic common sense, but you could be ejected from the ground if you don't follow the rules.

They are offences under the Football (Offences) Act 1991 and are strictly forbidden,

They are:

- The throwing of objects within the ground.

- The use of foul and abusive language and obscene chanting.

- Racial abuse in any form.

- Unauthorised entry to the playing area or surrounding track, except in an emergency.
