Corberan just resigned from Hudds - strange timing!
Leeds United are pleased to announce the club will travel to Australia in pre-season ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
The tour will take place in July and the Whites will play three friendly matches, in Queensland and Perth.
Leeds return Down Under, three years after the club’s previous tour to Australia, which proved hugely popular in Perth and Sydney.
Jesse Marsch’s side will first participate in the inaugural Queensland Champions Cup, alongside fellow Premier League side Aston Villa and A-League outfit Brisbane Roar and the side who amasses the most points will be awarded the title.
The competition will begin at Gold Coast’s Cbus Super Stadium on Thursday 14th July with Leeds taking on Brisbane Roar (7:45pm AEST).
This will be followed with the Whites taking on Steven Gerrard’s Villa side at the iconic Suncorp Stadium on Sunday 17th July (2:35pm AEST).
Official Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said: “Football has a rapidly growing, global following and these matches, featuring some of the world’s best players, will be major drawcards for Queensland.
“English Premier League’s huge legion of Queensland fans are certain to give a big welcome to Leeds United and Aston Villa when they play in Townsville, the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
“When it comes to major events, we’ve kicked plenty of goals over the years and securing these two EPL sides to play in Queensland is a great win for the state’s tourism industry.”
Queensland Minister for Tourism, Innovation and Sport Stirling Hinchliffe said: “If you’re an Aussie football fan, Queensland is the place to be in 2022.
“You don’t get EPL stars come out to Australia every day, for a lot of people, the Queensland matches will be their best chance to see some of the world’s best on Australian soil.
“The English Premier League is the best league on the planet and the fact that we’ve secured two current EPL sides to come here is a testament to the fact that Queensland is a world-class events destination.”
He was upset that the hierarchy didn't share his ambitions
I am pleasantly surprised to see how our recruitment has gone this summer. Still feel we need a recognised goal scorer to finish it off nicely.
Hoping we have a decent pre-season starting tonight to give us something to look forward to this season.
When do tickets for Cagliari go on sale?
I know I keep banging on about this but the days of the big number 9 are numbered. I’ll classify that by saying that I think Haaland will smash it this year but he is exceptional.
Last year the top 2 scorers were Salah and Son, then came Ronaldo. None of them are out and out strikers.
In the top 10 you had Kane who is becoming more of a number 10, Mane, De Bruyne, Jota, who is part of a front 3, and you have Vardy, a proper striker, at number 8.
We need more goals from midfield which is where our new signings come in.
Delighted for Tyler Roberts that he got his move. I really hope he makes it because I thought he tried his best when he came on for us. As others have said, the Championship may be his level but he’s not alone in that.
I just hope we’ve bought some composure because for most of MB time here that was the biggest disappointment. Except last year, which was exceptional because of the injuries, we’ve consistently got into dangerous positions and then just wasted them.
I hope this year is a turning point and the signings do look very promising.
Was wondering the same it has to be soon.

Official ticket & travel packages

In the coming weeks we will be announcing some amazing ‘More Than A Match’ experiences, with opportunities to meet the players, head coach and attend open training. More information on these events will be announced shortly.
Speaking about the tour, Leeds United head coach Marsch said: “It’s not only a great opportunity for Leeds to play three exciting games in front of our fans Down Under, it’s also a great opportunity to visit a wonderful country which I know loves their sport and is extremely knowledgeable about football.
“This will be our club’s third playing trip to Australia and I’m very much looking forward to taking the team back for what will be an important part of our preparations for the 2022/23 season.”
If he keeps this rate up or even close to it we have got ourselves a decent replacement for Raphinha.
Sinisterra scored 23 goals and registered 14 assists in 49 appearances for Feyenoord last season.
Is Queensland on fire or under water this week. The latter isn't it?
Is he Eire in disguise?
So do I, he was part of the squad that got us up after 16 years so he will always have credit in the bank for me for that. If he’s not quite the standard for the premier league that’s not his fault. Hope he smashes it in championship.
Bamford not even playing.
No stream knocking about then? I can’t even pay for it on LUTV, not letting me. Nightmare
Elland is the man for streams Foolee. I paid for the game and its working and Roca looks good, goal dissallowed for offside.
Well deserved 1 up.
No streams anywhere and the LUTV won't accept card
Yeah I’m getting the same, can’t even pay to watch it unfortunately.
