A fundraising campaign is under way to paint a Leeds United mural on the approach to their Elland Road ground.

The Leeds United Supporters' Trust (LUST) is trying to raise £3,800 to paint a wall design on the M621 underpass on Lowfields Road.

It is also on the hunt for interested artists to submit a design to be considered for the wall.

Group chairman Dave Carrington said: "Thousands of supporters pass through here to the game and would see it."

He added he personally would like any mural to celebrate the 1992 title-winning team led by Howard Wilkinson or illustrate the "commitment of Leeds fans".

Leeds United recently bought back the ground 13 years after debts forced its sale.

According to Mr Carrington, the hope is the winning design would "brighten up" the area and give it more of a club identity.

LUST has gained permission from the Highways Agency and Leeds City Council to paint a design.

After a design is chosen, the area will be cleaned in August and it is hoped the mural will be finished in time for the first home game that month.

Re: Mural

1. The paint does not cost 3,000 quid
2. Cleaning should not cost that.
2. There are plenty of creative Leeds fans who would gladly do this for nothing just for the kudos of doing it.

Pfaff.... 3,000 my bloody arse.

Re: Mural

I think it should be a mural of bare post industrial grey brickwork with the minimalist slogan in a free hand font saying "Bates Out".

Can I have my three grand now?

OK fair enough, 3 grand still looks a bit uppish to me.
