Founded in 1889, Sheffield United came as an offshoot of Sheffield United Cricket Club and are nicknamed ‘The Blades’ due to Sheffield’s history of steel production. The club have played their home matches at Bramall Lane since they were formed over 130 years ago – an all-seater ground that can seat over 32,000 fans – and don’t forget that you can find all the latest Sheffield United news here.
The Blades have won the First, Second, Third and Fourth Division in their history, a feat that has only been achieved by a selection of clubs. Their most recent success was their title-winning campaign in the 2018/19 Championship season and subsequent promotion to the Premier League has been impressive thus far.
Digging deeper into the club’s history, they seem to have a taste for the FA Cup. Sheffield United have won the competition four times, but the last time dates back to 1924-25. However, they have reached the final on two other occasions and the semi-finals on five occasions. As for the League Cup, they have only managed to get to the semi-finals twice, back in 2015 and 2003.
Their closest rivalry comes against Sheffield Wednesday and the pair contest the Steel City derby. They have met on 144 occasions over the years, with the Blades winning 49, drawing 47 and losing 48.
