History and description

Bramall Lane is a stadium that still hosts professional football matches. The football ground opened on 30 April 1855 and was used for football purposes for the first 7 years. The first football match at the ground was played on 29 December 1862 when Sheffield FC took on Hallam FC (0-0).

In successive years, the stadium was regularly used for football matches of the local Sheffield teams. In 1889, Sheffield United was formed and moved into the stadium.

The first floodlit match took place in 1898 and the stadium has been used for football ever since. Bramall Lane hosted the first-ever floodlit football match in 1878. The stadium underwent a series of expansions in the late 1890s when two new stands were built. The first floodlit match took place in 1898 and Bramall Lane has been used for football ever since.

After making smaller improvements in the decades following, for example roofs were added, a record attendance was set in 1936 when 68,287 spectators attended an FA Cup match between Sheffield United and Leeds.

In 1966, a new two-tiered Bramall Lane Stand opened, but due to the fact that the ground was still being used for cricket matches, the stadium had a rather odd shape with a pitch about double the width of a standard football pitch. This caused in practice that one side of the stadium was just an empty field with the cricket pavilion in back.

In 1975, a new South Stand was built on the cricket pitch at Bramall Lane, transforming the stadium into a proper football venue.

The redeveloped stadium has been a great success, with the club winning the League Championship in 2013 and reaching the FA Cup Final in 2014.
