Named after the club’s FA Cup win in 1972 – the competition began in 1872 – the pavilion is one of the biggest venues of its kind in the North, with a capacity of 3,000 standing or 1,200 seated.

It recently staged Harvey Nicholls' first out-of-store fashion show away from London, along with a number of major exhibitions.

"This is a magnificent venue. Hopefully it will be important to Leeds and there will be spin-offs for the rest of Yorkshire. We will be able to bring functions here that would have been previously held outside the county," said Leeds United chairman Ken Bates.

The official opening featured performances from Tenors Unlimited, the Globe Girls, Jazz band Mr Swing, and 11-year-old comedian Jack Carroll, who suffers with cerebral palsy.
