Leeds City Football Club was the leading professional football club in Leeds before World War I. The club was dissolved in 1919 due to financial irregularities. The club was formed in 1904, taking the crest of Leeds as the club badge and adopting blue, yellow and white as the club's colours. With the demise of the Holbeck Rugby Club, Leeds City moved into Elland Road stadium. They were elected to the Football League in 1905. Leeds City's entire league career was in the Second Division, and all their matches against Chelsea were played in that competition. During the 1st World War there ensued 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. Port Vale took over their remaining fixtures (as well as their results up to that point).

In the wake of their demise, Leeds United were formed, and entered the Football League the following year. The club re-formed in 1924, and played amateur football in the Yorkshire Football League, but were dissolved again in 1927. A team of the same name was formed in 2006 and plays in a local league, though they are not considered an official continuation of the old club.
