Leeds City 1914-1915 Retro Football Shirt.

The club was elected to the Football League in 1905 but during the 1st World War there was a sequence of financial irregularities, including breaking the ban on paying players during the war, that led to the club's dissolution in 1919. They were expelled from The Football League eight games into the 1919-20 season.

In the wake of their demise, Leeds United were formed, and entered the Football League the following year.

On 17 October 1919, an auction was held at the Metropole Hotel in Leeds, where the playing staff was auctioned off along with other assets of the club. The 16 members of the playing squad were bought by 9 different clubs for a total of £9,250
