Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has urged fans to stay at home if they seal the Championship title.
The Whites need a maximum of four points from their final three games in order to get promoted to Premier League.
“Football means little without the presence of fans,” Radrizzani said.
“However, it’s vitally important we stay safe and keep those around us safe too by staying at home.”
Leeds will be hosting Barnsley on Thursday, July 16.
“The fight against Covid-19 is not yet over and we must continue to be sensible,” Radrizzani wrote in an open letter to supporters published in the Yorkshire Evening Post.
“I know many of you are desperate to show our boys support during this important week, but the health and wellbeing of our loved ones in our community must be our top priority.”
“I know whatever the outcome may be, many of you (supporters) will want to come together and cheer us on,” Radrizzani added.
“But on behalf of everyone at Leeds United, I would ask that you enjoy these final games at home safely.
“We want supporters back in the stands as soon as possible and if the virus returns to our region due to mass gatherings, then we could damage the progress that has been made.”
