Leeds United insist they have no plans to bring in an alcohol ban and that fans will continue to be able to enjoy a pint at Elland Road.
The club issued a statement making their position clear following a newspaper report that one Leeds director, Salem Patel, had proposed an alcohol ban to reflect the Muslim beliefs of owners GFH Capital, the Dubai-based subsidiary of a Bahraini Islamic investment bank.
However, Leeds managing director David Haigh said that was not the case. He said: "The board has never discussed banning alcohol and has no plans to change the current licensing arrangements at Elland Road.
"Enjoying a pint before and after watching the match is a time-honoured Yorkshire tradition as indeed it is among many British football fans.
"Equally the club will continue to offer a selection of wines and other alcoholic drinks to our corporate guests."
