GETTING TO SHEFFIELD UNITED

6 May 2016

Here is a guide of how to get to Bramall Lane for Iron supporters heading there to watch their side on Sunday afternoon.

By Car
Departing from Glanford Park, take the first exit at the roundabout by Tesco’s onto Doncaster Road, then continue to the next roundabout, taking the first exit again onto the M181, heading towards Humber Bridge/Doncaster/M180.

After two miles, keep right at the fork, following signs for Doncaster/M180 before merging onto the M180. Continue for just over 12 miles and take the exit onto the M18 towards the M1/Doncaster.

After 19 miles, exit at junction 32 and enter the M1, heading towards Sheffield/Leeds. Stay on here for just 3.5 miles until junction 33, when you take the A630 exit to Sheffield(Centre)/Rotherham. Take the first exit at the roundabout onto Sheffield Pkway/A630 and continue to follow signs for Sheffield Parkway.

Continue to follow Sheffield Parkway signs until Park Squad Roundabout, where you will take the third exit onto Sheaf St/A61. Sheffield Railway Station is on your left, at the Sheaf Street roundabout, continue ahead onto Suffolk Street.

At the Granville Square roundabout turn right onto St Mary's Road. Take the second left into Shoreham Street and you will see the Blades’ famous ground situated on your right-hand side.

By Train
This journey is quite a simple one for Scunthorpe-based Iron fans. From Scunthorpe Station, catch the 10:08am or 11:08am Manchester Airport service and after just under an hour, you will arrive in Sheffield. The ground is around one mile away from the station, so you can get a taxi or walk, it should take around 15 minutes. Turn left out of the station and you may see signs for the ground. If not, take the right at the roundabout and left at the next one onto Bramall Lane. There are return trains throughout the day, which will take just over an hour.

Pubs and Grub
Iron fans seem to have eyed up a potential pub...

FAO @SUFCOfficial fans it seems like our fans are gathering at The Sheaf Island pub on Sunday a 5 minute walk from Bramell Lane UTI

The public houses close to the ground are generally for home fans, but ten minutes away, on Ecclesall Road, there is a Wetherspoons and if you like your ale, there is the Devonshire Cat a little further away. Near the railway station is the Globe and nearby, The Howard. Sheffield Tap is in the actual station, but you may not be allowed inside in club colours.

You can buy plenty of food from the concourse, but elsewhere there is the station, the Psalter Tavern on Eccleshill Road, two miles away from the ground and it is very reasonably priced. In general, there are some food outlets to choose from near the town centre and en route to the ground.

What to Expect
Bramall Lane can create quite an atmosphere at full capacity. It has been modernised in recent years and the stands are the same size all the way around. There is the Jessica Ennis Stand, the GAC Stand, the Visit Malta Stand and the Kennedy’s Law Kop Stand. They are quite close to the pitch and it benefits the atmosphere. The away fans are housed in the lower tier of the Jessica Ennis Stand, where up to 3,000 fans can be accommodated. The views are generally good and not impeded. Televisions are in the concourses.
