Bramall Lane (capacity 32,702)
Bramall Lane is the oldest league stadium in the world that is still hosting professional football matches, having first done so in 1862, when Sheffield FC played Hallam FC. It wasn’t until 1889 that Sheffield United formed and became permanent residences. It also hosted the world’s first floodlit match in 1878.
The stadium has undergone some major development since the Taylor Report, and became all seater in 1994. By 2006, the stadium was completely enclosed after the corner between the South Stand and Bramall Lane End was filled in. If the club return to the Premier League, there are plans to add an additional 3,000 seats to the Kop End.
Away fans visiting Bramall Lane are located in the lower tier of the Redbrik Estate Agency Stand (also known as the Bramall Lane End) with a typical allocation of around 3,000.
There is no car parking for away fans at the stadium and there is limited options around the stadium in the surrounding streets. Many away fans choose to take the Park & Ride from Meadowhall Railway Station, or park in one of the pay and display car parks around the city.
