Sheffield United: Premier League Blades' Bramall Lane stadium has officially the best atmosphere in the entire COUNTRY - beating likes of Portsmouth and Leeds United in rankings
Sheffield United have made a good impression on the field since they began their Premier League adventure back in August… and it seems their fans are doing their bit in the stands, too.
United’s Bramall Lane stadium has been voted as the stadium with the best atmosphere in the whole of the top flight, according to popular website footballgroundmap.com – and no ground in the entire country rates higher.
The site, the brainchild of Blades fan Rob Clarkson, allows fans to easily keep track of how many grounds they have visited, and also rate them by criteria including location, view, facilities, food and police.
And with 59,038 visits and an average rating of four stars out of five, Bramall Lane ranks above nearest rivals Newcastle United at the top of the Premier League atmosphere table. Liverpool are third.
Of the 20 top-flight clubs, Bramall Lane also ranks second on the site for location, eighth for both view and facilities, third for food… and a lowly 15th for police.
Only Aston Villa, Everton, Burnley, Wolves and West Ham score lower on the policing score.
Of the entire country, United come out top ahead of Portsmouth’s Fratton Park in second and Leeds’ Elland Road in third.
