New suite for Blades fans

Have your say

SHEFFIELD United fans can watch their favourite team’s games in style next season as the club launches a new suite which commemorates some of its greatest players.

The Captains’ Lounge is in the John Street stand at Bramall Lane, and its walls are decorated with memorabilia and pictures of Blades skippers from Ernest Needham in the 19th century, through to recent players such as Chris Morgan.

Supporters can watch matches from padded armchair-style seats as well as enjoying a buffet meal, cash bar and betting facilities. An official match programme is also included.

Packages cost £999 for the season and £50 per match. The Captains’ Lounge has a casual dress code, allowing denim, sports and leisure wear and football shirts.

Sheffield United says the suite offers ‘better value for money’ for supporters of the team, which was relegated to League One last weekend.
