Leeds United fans party into the night as car gets damaged in celebrations


Leeds united fans partied into the night after sealing promotion to the Premier League following 16 years outside the top flight.

The West Yorkshire club were guaranteed automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship after second-placed West Brom lost 2-1 at Huddersfield.

Leeds had moved on to 87 points on Thursday following their 1-0 home win against Barnsley and West Brom’s defeat left them five points behind with one game to play.

Jubilant fans gathered at Elland Road to celebrate the club’s return to the top table of English football, while the players were also in party mode as they danced and saluted supporters from the windows of the stadium.

And videos on social media showed manager Marcelo Bielsa, the inspiration behind the club’s resurgence, elbow-bumping fans near his home in Wetherby as they congratulated him.

However, the owner of a BMW car spotted at Elland Road will not be celebrating this morning as it was badly damaged.
