Why Sheffield Wednesday fans might not like this new Sheffield themed 'Monopoly' poster

A new Sheffield-themed ‘Monopoly’ style poster could upset Sheffield Wednesday fans – after the club was placed on a much less expensive square than Steel City rivals Sheffield United.

The Sheff-opoly art print captures some of Sheffield’s best known places – with everywhere from City Sauna to the Henderson’s Relish factory getting a look in on the poster which mimics the famous Monopoly board

The Leadmill, The Fat Cat and the Peace Gardens also feature, along with Meadowhall and Dore railway stations.

But it’s the differences between Hillsborough and Bramall Lane that will get the city's football fans talking.

The Owls are part of the light blue set – with Wednesday occupying the spot normally represented by the Pentonville Road on the traditional London set.

Meanwhile, the Blades are much further round the board on the red set – with United taking the square that’s normally used by the Strand.

And eagle-eyed fans will spot the price gap between the two squares, the Owls spot priced at £120 while the United square is £100 more expensive at £220, perhaps noting the divisional differences currently in place between the two clubs.

The print, produced by the Yorkshire Print Company sees the poster embossed with the slogan “Sheffield: A Reyt Nice Place” – and cheekily has a space for “community service” cards rather than the traditional Community Chest cards.

Other squares to feature on the board include Castle Market, Manor Top, West Street, Park Hill Flats, Ecclesall Road and Forgemasters.

The print is priced between £22 and £38 and is available HERE
