Bramall Lane History
Originally built as a cricket ground, Bramall Lane has a proud history of firsts in England. Not only did Bramall Lane host the most significant matches in the city of Sheffield during the 19th century it also hosted the final of the Youdan Cup in 1867 which was the first football tournament in the world (pre-dating the FA Cup by 4 years).
Bramall Lane hosted the first ever floodlight match and many games between Sheffield and London Football Associations paving the way for the unification of their respective rules it was also used by Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield F.C. but has been the home of Sheffield United since the club was established in 1889 and is the oldest major stadium in the world still home to a professional football team.
The only other ground in England that has hosted both Cricket and Football is The Oval. Bramall Lane has also hosted Rugby League games for the Sheffield Eagles, whilst also hosting a range of cultural events.
The first football match held at Bramall Lane was on 29th December 1862 between Sheffield and Hallam but it wasn’t until the FA Cup semi-final between Preston North End and West Bromwich Albion in March 1889 that it was decided Bramall Lane needed its own team. Sheffield United was born, taking their name from the cricket team that had also used the ground.
New stands were constructed in the late 19th century, with roofs being added in 1911 to the Bramall Lane End and in 1935 to the Kop. There was significant during The Blitz in World War 2 and more damage during a large gale storm in 1962 that saw a floodlight collapse.
The ground went through a series of modernisations in the 1990’s including seat installation in standing areas and pylon-less floodlights. The early 2000’s saw new corner stands added and a hotel built between the South Stand and Bramall Lane End.
