Bramall Lane Stadium, Sheffield

Bramall Lane is a football stadium in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. It is the home of Sheffield United. As the largest stadium in Sheffield during the 19th century it hosted most of the city's most significant matches including the final of the world's first football tournament, first floodlit match and several matches between the Sheffield and London Football Associations that led to the unification of their respective rules. It was also used by Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield F.C. for major matches. It has been the home of Sheffield United since the club's establishment in 1889. It is the oldest major stadium in the world still to be hosting professional association football matches.The stadium was built on a Sheffield road named after the Bramall family (who were file and graver manufacturers). The Bramalls owned "The Old White House" on the corner of Bramall Lane and Cherry Street, and subsequently built the Sheaf House, now a public house that still stands at the top of Bramall Lane. The stadium was originally opened as a cricket ground. It was also used for football games in the 19th century by Sheffield F.C. and Sheffield Wednesday but since 1889 it has been the home of Sheffield United.Bramall Lane is one of only two grounds (the other being the Oval) which has hosted England football internationals (five games prior to 1930), an England cricket test match (a single Test, in 1902, against Australia) and an FA Cup Final (the 1912 replay, in which Barnsley beat West Bromwich Albion, 1–0). It also regularly hosted FA Cup Semi Finals and replays between 1889 and 1938.

  • Good ground, good views from the away end, but poor having home fans above You, although there is netting above you to stop things being thrown down, that doesn't stop drink, spit or chewing gum. Not a lot of issue for smaller clubs but I reckon derbies and big teams fans will have a torrid time
  • Great atmosphere ( if the team is successful and meeting supporters expectations). Traditional English football stadium with loads of heritage. Esthetically pleasing on the eye with an eye on building for future success. UTB.
  • Really it's just an average ground. You've got turnstiles, fire exits and pie/drink store. Atmosphere is very good

  • Beautiful down town Bramall lane.. Need a say more. . Mecca. .
