About Sheffield United

Sheffield United Football Club is a professional football club in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, which competes in the Championship, the second tier of English football. They were formed in 1889, as an offshoot of Sheffield United Cricket Club, and are nicknamed “the Blades” due to Sheffield’s history of cutlery production. The team have played home games at Bramall Lane since their formation.

Sheffield United won the First Division in 1898 and the FA Cup in 1899, 1902, 1915 and 1925; they were First Division runners-up in 1897 and 1900 and reached the FA Cup final in 1901 and 1936. United were the first club in English football to achieve promotion from the newly formed Second Division to the First Division in 1892–93. The club was also a founder member of the Premier League in the 1992–93 season, during which they scored the first ever goal of the competition; Brian Deane was the first scorer in a 2–1 win at Bramall Lane against Manchester United. Sheffield United are one of only five sides to have won all four professional divisions of English football.

For most of the club’s history, United have played in red and white striped shirts with black shorts. Their main rivals are Sheffield Wednesday, with whom they contest the Steel City derby.
