Leeds Stadium reopens after a young man was arrested over a security threat


Police allowed Leeds United, the English Premier League football club, to open its stadium on Sunday, after recommending its closure due to a security threat.

West Yorkshire Police said they arrested a “20-year-old” young man last Friday: in connection with the incident and investigations are still ongoing. The threat came via social media on Thursday.

The club announced in a statement: West Yorkshire Police have told Leeds United that they are able to reopen Elland Road immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank the public for their support.

Leeds, which ranks 14th in the league, will visit leaders Arsenal early next month after the international break, and its first match will be at home on the fourth of April against Nottingham Forest.
