It's a religion so basically I can't speak ill of a place of worship. Oh, the bogs and snack bars have one thing in common tho, I wouldn't eat anything out of either of them! 🤮 Great atmosphere usually but do get the usual moaners as at all grounds. Overall easily the best ground in Yorkshire

Went to a match on a Tuesday night and the atmosphere was great. Food was good in the box with plenty of courses for you to leave the match with a full stomach. Helpful and plentiful staff in the executive box area.

Visited to watch the Netherlands vs Switzerland game. Well organized, fairly quick entrance even though the crowd today was approx 22500 a record for a non home game, lots of match hype, seating a bit tight, contactless payments only

My first stadium experience in my life. It is very easy to find my entrance and my place. employees were very helpful. only the fans were so lifeless. I expected a more lively and enthusiastic match :)

Nice old ground, but if they do ever hold a women's game again the toilet situation needs to be sorted. The ground is literally on people's doorstep and a small walk from the main rd so food and drink is easy to get hold of.

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]
