Blades Give Owls 3,000 Tickets

Blades Give Owls 3,000 Tickets

Tickets for this year's Sheffield derby at Bramall Lane will once again be in huge demand from Owls fans after United gave us a restricted amount of 3,000 tickets for the second time.

In previous seasons Wednesday fans have been given both tiers of the Bramall Lane end of the ground, until last season when United issued Wednesday with just the lower tier of the stand.

The decision saw many Wednesday fans miss out on tickets, prompting many to sit in the home ends, and seeing Blades fans in the top tier launch objects down on the travelling Owls support.

Despite a plea to give Wednesday fans the whole of the Bramall Lane end, United have once again given us the lower tier of the stand, just 3,000 tickets, with new 'safety measures' put in place to avoid a repeat of last season's incidents.

The clash, which takes place on Saturday, Feburay 7, was set to kick-off at 3pm but has been brought forward to 12 noon on police advice.

Ticket details for Owls fans have yet to be announced on the official site.

Best way to repay them? Three points, 3,000 tickets didn't do us much harm last season

didn't go to pigsty lane last year but the stories i've heard make me wonder how the police allow this to be repeated, wonder what noises we'll hear from our new boys 'cos surely we can't take this lying down, i'd like to see this challenged in a professional manner, somebody is gonna get hurt and we must try and stop that happening, who do they think they are??
