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.

Great stadium and great club. Have been here twice and both times impressive. Fanatic crowd and the history of this place is amazing. Choice of beers is not bad as well which is not un-important when watching football. Stadium is walking distance (15 minutes) from the city center. In some sections seating can be tights, especially when you are almost 2 meters tall ;-). It was a pitty the fanshop was closed after the match.

As an away (Palace) fan I rate this a decent ground. Unlike many of the soulless new out of town stadiums this place has character. The home fans make a lot of noise, a combination of good acoustics, being close to the pitch and sheer passion. There are plenty of local car parks, our stay in an NCP multi-storey cost less than £6. It is also within easy walking distance of the train station. Unfortunately the (current) Blades players do not have the quality of their fans.

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]
