'I need this shirt' - Sheffield United retro shirts re-release delights Blades fans

Sheffield United have re-released two iconic kits from the 90s and it’s fair to say they have gone down well with Blades fans, regardless of age.

Friday, 1st October 2021, 6:42 pm

A replica of United’s pioneering ‘dayglow’ yellow shirt from 1989-91 has been revealed along with the beautiful laced collar number from 1992-94.

The shirts will officially be launched at the club’s Meadowhall store on Friday October 15 with former players Carl Bradshaw and Mitch Ward pencilled in to make an appearance.

The club said on their website: “This is a ticket only event and you can get your free tickets from our Meadowhall store, there will also be a small number of tickets available at the Bramall Lane Superstore. Be quick as this event is limited to the first 400 supporters. Tickets are limited to two per supporter.”
