Sheffield United FC - Bramall Lane

Bramall Lane Guide

Stadium Info

Bramall Lane is the oldest league stadium in the world and hosted its first game in 1862 whilst hosting the worlds first ever floodlit match in 1878. There are few bad seats in the house, although the Hallam FM stand behind one of the goals has a few supporting pillars and can affect your view. The whole stadium is full of character as you'd expect for a stadium this old. All 4 corners are filled in with either seating or admin offices but it adds to the overall feel and also helps to keep the atmosphere in.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated in the lower tier of the Bramall Lane Stand where up to 3,000 travelling fans can be catered for. The views are unobstructed and very good whilst the facilities and leg room are also reasonable. Tickets can be purchased on the day although I always recommend getting them in advance.

Where To Drink

There are a good set of pubs near to the ground including The Golden Lion which is located in Alderson Road, off Woodhead Road and is a 5 minutes walk from the away entrance. It welcomes both home and away fans and there is a healthy level of banter in here on match days.

The city centre has some excellent pubs and is only a ten minute walk away, so drinking here and walking to the game is certainly a viable option.

Parking

A lot of people suggest in Meadowhall Shopping Centre and taking a tram in to avoid the town centre but in all honesty, if you're going to arrive early enough to do that you'll probably be early enough to find street parking in the roads surrounding the stadium. Do arrive early though, there's lots to see so it'll be worth your while.
