The Sporting Heroes project worked with Leeds United in 2011.

The Sporting Heroes project first contacted the team at Leeds United in April 2010 as a way of reaching out to the different rugby, football and crickets clubs across West Yorkshire. From initial consultation, plans were put in place for the project team to capture memories of both supporters and players alike.

Working with members of the Community team, the project was able to attend a home game on 2nd April 2011 to capture 'snapshot' memories of supporters, and the club also kindly contributed material to the Sporting Heroes exhibition at Leeds City Museum April-July 2011.

Sporting Heroes would like to thank Leeds United, especially Alan Scorfield and Mick Ferguson, for their co-operation and for helping the project achieve its aims.
