This review may be a bit biased, as I am a Sheffield United supporter myself.
As a season card holder in the ‘Kop’ stand for the past 6 years, I have seen the facilities at Bramall Lane be massively updated to a standard most certainly fit for the Premier League. Despite the team playing there being pretty bad recently, the atmosphere has remained quite good, though with a big decrease in crowd attendances the noise levels aren’t what they were when I first got my Season ticket. The addition of a big screen which displays the live match, Sky Sports news, advertisements and related media is very welcome. Stewarding at the ground is a mixed bag – they seem to be much more comfortable with being stricter with the home fans than the away! The Fire Certificate rule imposed by the council on all Sheffield sports venues is ridiculous, but is obviously out of the clubs control.
When you hear 33 thousand people singing along to the "Greasy Chip Butty’ (a rendition of ‘You fill up my senses’ by john denver) you’ll understand why they call it “Beautiful Downtown Bramall Lane”!
Brammal Lane is known for the great stadium it supports. I have been about 3 times and have had a VIP back-stage tour through the changing rooms and played with the players on the pitch and you never really know how big the stadium is until you have actually stepped foot in the tunnel and onto the pitch. It hosts some great games too!
We often go to games here, it’s a great stadium with a great atmosphere. Games are always well attended and the regulars have their own chants which are sung on a regular basis.
Parking around the venue is a nightmare, in fact, unless you get there hours early, you will not be able to park near the ground. It is near good bus routes though and it is walkable into Sheffield city centre from the ground. It gets packed around the ground on a match day but there are always plenty of police making sure things flow smoothly.
Inside the ground, it is fairly modern. The toilets are quite clean given it’s a football match and you don’t normally queue long. There is a snack bar selling fast food and beer, although you can’t take the beer up into the match. It’s overpriced but only as expected at a venue like this.
The seats are quite cramped together but clean. You get a good view from most seats in the ground but we always sit in the Valad Stand, which has a mixture of adults and kids seated there and the atmosphere is good.
Bramall Lane is a great place to watch football with a great atmosphere, not one of the quiet premier league grounds. The ground is one of the oldest sporting venues in the world staging event, such as test cricket and internationals and is constantly being updated to look modern and at the same time keep its history.
At the ground there is a hall of fame where many historical items can be viewed such as old international kits and important items in the clubs history. There is also the club shop where memorabillia and replica kits can be bought.
There is soon to be a 4* hotel built next to the ground, which will include a gym.
The best place in Sheffield! A great look to the place and atmosphere in and around the ground makes the place buzz with excitement.
Plenty of pubs in the surrounding area so there are many choices for a drink on match days.
A new hotel is just about finished which will help travelling supporters to get to see their team play with the ease of being so close.
Quite frankly, the best football club in the world. Bramall Lane is nutorious for its hostile atmosphere. The team arent the best, and dont go if your looking for free flowing football, but for something to do on a saturday afternoon, it beats going to meadowhall!
Bramall Lane Stadium is the home of Sheffield United Football Club in Sheffield, England and is the oldest major stadium in the world still to be hosting professional football matches.
Built on a Sheffield road named after the Brammall family, who owned "The Old White House" on the corner of Bramall Lane and Cherry Street, it 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 in 1902 against Australia and a FA Cup Final Replay in 1912, when Barnsley beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0. It also regularly hosted FA Cup Semi Finals and Replays between 1889 and 1938.
Now Bramall Lane has been renovated into an all seated immaculate stadium, fit for hosting U21 international matches.
On a matchday the noise can be deafening, but more often than not the atmosphere is filled is moans groans and general dissapointment. This has come about because many fans have since jumped on the 'premiership bandwagon' and have no sense of what Sheffield United are all about.
The greatest view at the ground is the Bramall Lane upper tier (Halliwells stand upper tier) The main stand is the Kop (Frasers property stand).
The club have built a Hotel on the corner of Cherry Street and Bramall Lane, 4*, opening very soon. (see link)
The club offer so many different types of events.
They hold dinner parties, conferences, they also offer executive boxes, so you can watch the game from the comfort of your own function room, you receive a programme and a 3 course meal for your package.
The club also offer Office space from £99 per month (exc. VAT)
same as the sheffield wednesday ground great place to watch football.
both teams are average. both won lost drawn against each other.
big rivalry against them both. best game to go and watch if u can get tickets. STEEL CITY DERBY
I love this place, but then again, I am biased.
Bramall Lane has been the home of various sports for over 150 years and despite being a stadium fit for modern day football, it still retains a traditional look.
There is currently a 4* Copthorne Hotel being added to the ground due to open later this month.
