Leeds Football club season ticket rise -Limo Hire Leeds
Limo Hire Leeds United fans yet to buy season tickets are being hit in the pocket ahead of next season – with the cost of the most expensive yearly ticket standing at a whopping £646.
The club have announced their price structure for supporters who haven't renewed for 2009-10 and there is little beat-the-credit-crunch cheer on offer for cash-strapped fans.

Adults wanting to purchase a season ticket in the East Central Lower and West Stand sections of Elland Road will have to pay £646 – with the price working out at £28 per League One game Limousine Hire Leeds.
The price for a seat in the Kop (North Stand) is £475, working out at over £20.50 per match.
Applications for season tickets will be accepted from Monday with adult prices starting from £441 – in the family area – and junior prices from £167.
Defending the prices, Leeds chief executive Shaun Harvey said: "When considering setting the prices, we have to balance the anticipated expenditure of the club – the majority of which is spent on keeping Elland Road running, including paying the lease that we inherited – with what we spend on players.
"We're confident that the level that we need to charge will ensure the football club meets all its costs as much as possible. That's a significant amount of money. Those are the costs we are faced with running the football club."

"A significant number of fans have already renewed, 10,000 approximately, at a cheaper price."
The price of a late renewal season ticket is similar to what fans were charged for the 2008-09 season with United's pricing structure for last term set back in January 2008 – although that doesn't take into account the global economic crisis which has significantly worsened in the past 12 months.
The season-ticket prices list for 2008-09 saw adult season-ticket holders landed with a 10 per cent price hike if they renewed by March 1, 2008 with late renewals copping a 20 per cent increase to the previous season – to the consternation of many.
Despite the parlous economic situation, that hasn't stopped thousands of Whites fans already pledging their support to the club for next season (2009-10) by snapping up tickets at a special 'early bird' rate when next season's pricing policy was announced in the winter.
Thousands took advantage of the offer after the club announced that they would freeze season ticket prices for the 2009-10 campaign for supporters who renewed before March 2 – regardless of what division the club would be playing in.
Over 8,000 renewed ahead of the deadline, with a further 1,500 pledging their support for next season by renewing before April 28 at a 'later renewal' price
