Decent ground. Not a bad atmosphere. Great view, fairly close to the pitch. I sat behind the goal in E block, row F, aisle seat 117. The seat wasn’t comfortable and there wasn’t much legroom but we were allowed to stand throughout. I didn’t have any of the food so can’t comment on that. The best thing about this ground is the proximity to the station and city centre, easy walking distance. Staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming. There was a bit of trouble in the underpass by the big roundabout and the lack of police officers was a bit concerning. But it was just one or two rogue home fans out of many thousands. All in all, a decent away day. Programmes available for sale outside the stadium.

Stadium looked great at night, we had good views, felt safe, lots of attendants all friendly, good refreshments and food, Out side the ground facilities were not great. Big screen was good. I enjoyed my rare visit to a premier league game.

There's no Sheffield without Sheffield United! A very good place to visit. We went for a Sheffield United women's game and the atmosphere was spectacular. My children loved it. A great place to pay a visit if you're a football fan.

Great atmosphere at the stadium. Doesn’t have some of the modern facilities of some stadiums but doesn’t miss it. Nice old school feel with decent food and drink areas. Obvious queues get big at peak times so getting there early and using the facilities before half time etc. is recommended. There’s parking not too far away for a fiver and there’s decent takeaways nearby as well.

A older ground with plenty of atmosphere. The visiting fans have only one small bar with very chaotic queues and serving system. Best avoided unless you love being crushed, jostled and ignored by the serving staff. The view of the pitch is fine from the away end, with no pillars blocking the view, unlike the home fans opposite. The toilets only have cold water. Season 2023-2024.

History (from Wikipedia)

Bramall Lane is a football stadium in SheffieldSouth YorkshireEngland. It is the home of Premier League club Sheffield United. As the largest stadium in Sheffield during the 19th century, it hosted most of the city's most significant matches including the final of the world's first football tournament, first floodlit match and several matches between the Sheffield and London Football Associations that led to the unification of their respective rules. It was also used by Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield F.C. for major matches. It has been the home of Sheffield United since the club's establishment in 1889. It is the oldest major stadium in the world still to be hosting professional association football matches.[2][3]

The stadium was built on a Sheffield road named after the Bramall family (who were file and graver manufacturers). The Bramalls owned The Old White House on the corner of Bramall Lane and Cherry Street, and subsequently built the Sheaf House, now a public house that still stands at the top of Bramall Lane. The stadium originally opened as a cricket ground. It was used for football games in the 19th century by 
Sheffield F.C. and Sheffield Wednesday, but since 1889 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 (a single Test, in 1902, against Australia) and an FA Cup Final (the 1912 replay, in which Barnsley beat West Bromwich Albion, 1–0). It also regularly hosted FA Cup semi-finals and replays between 1889 and 1938.

The ground has also hosted 
rugby league games for the Sheffield Eagles,[4] and has also been selected to host England V Greece in the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.[5] The ground also hosted a Billy Graham Evangelist meeting in 1985, a pair of rock concerts by Bruce Springsteen in 1988 in front of 88,000 people, a friendly match for the 150th anniversary of the world's oldest football club Sheffield F.C., where they played Inter Milan in 2007. Also hosting a Travis Pastrana Motor cross event in 2016, an IBF Welterweight title boxing match featuring Sheffield United fan Kell Brook, in front of 27,000 people in 2017, the Women's League Cup final and a Rod Stewart concert both in 2019. The stadium has also been used several times to host England mens and womens senior and youth teams in friendly and competitive matches.

The record attendance for the ground is 68,287 set at an 
FA Cup 5th Round tie between Sheffield United and Leeds United on 15 February 1936. The ground was extensively renovated in the wake of the Taylor Report, and has an all-seated capacity of 32,050.[1]
