Where Sheffield Utd & Sheffield Wednesday rank compared to rivals among largest attendances in UK football

Both Sheffield sides suffered a defeat in their latest fixtures but their fans remain fierce as ever.

Sheffield United got their Premier League campaign underway on Saturday when they hosted Crystal Palace at Bramall Lane. It wasn’t the perfect start to their time back in England’s top flight but the narrow 1-0 win for the away side will have left Paul Heckingbottom with a lot of positives to take moving forward.

Sheffield Wednesday were also dealt a loss during their six-goal thriller against Hull City. Despite taking the lead, the Owls ultimately lost 4-2, meaning they are yet to get a point on the board so far in this Championship season.

Their respective fans still arrived in droves to show their support though and we’ve taken a look at where the United and Wednesday attendances rank in the top 20 across England and Scotland so far.
