.
.

Leeds United fans were again among the worst-behaved in the country last season, according to figures released this week.

In total, 101 Whites fans were arrested during the 2012/13 season, placing them third in the league of shame, behind Newcastle United with 175 arrests and Manchester United with 145.

More than half the total of 2,456 arrests were for public disorder and booze-related incidents. Arrests for violence more than doubled from the previous year, from 273 to 554. Arrests for racist chanting went up from 23 to 42.

Figures released also showed the teams with the most fans banned from games by court order. Seven Halifax Town fans were banned during the season.

Cardiff City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Leeds United and Millwall topped the list.

Lower league sides such as Bradford City, Grimsby Town and Scunthorpe United were among the worst for banned supporters, despite relatively low gates compared to clubs higher up the football ladder.

In contrast, Leeds United had the highest number of travelling fans in the Football League, averaging 2,678 fans per away game over the 2012/13 campaign.
