Sheffield United Football Club is an English football club based in the city of Sheffield in South Yorkshire. They currently feature in the English Premier League. United have won the League once and the FA Cup four times.
Sheffield United were founded in 1889 at Adelphi Hotel in Sheffield and won the League in the 1897-1898 season and finished runners up in the league in 1896-1897 and 1899-1900. Sheffield United won the FA Cup in 1899, 1902, 1915 and 1925 but have now won any trophy since 1925.
Sheffield United were promoted to the Premier League for the 1992-1993 season but were soon relegated. They however re-scaled the Premier League mountain in the first few years of the 21st century but could not hold onto their top flight status.
The Blades again dropped down to the third tier but climbed back into the Championship in 2016-2017, before gaining promotion to the Premier League again in 2019 under current boss Chris Wilder where they’ve enjoyed a remarkable return campaign. United went down again but regained their top flight status by being 2022-23 Championship runners-up under Paul Heckingbotham.
Sheffield United play their home matches at Bramall Lane, which can accommodate 31,884 spectators. They bear the nickname the Red and White Wizards but are most commonly called the Blades, after the city’s reputation for producing steel.
