History and description

Sheffield Wednesday moved to the current Hillsborough Stadium in 1899. They played their first match at their new ground on 2 September 1899 against Chesterfield (5-1). At that time, the stadium was still called Owlerton Stadium. The stadium underwent a series of developments in 1913, including the construction of a new main stand and expansions of the terraces. The new main stand was completed in 1914 and renamed Hillsborough.

On Thursday, Hillsborough set a new attendance record for an FA Cup match by welcoming 72,841 people to the stadium.

In the early 1960s, a new North Stand was built at the Leppings Lane End and North West Corner. Additional improvements were made to this stand in subsequent years.

Hillsborough was selected as one of the playing venues of the 1966 World Cup. It hosted three group matches and the quarter-final between West Germany and Uruguay (4-0).

No major changes were made to the stadium over the following decades, and its condition slowly deteriorated. The only noticeable change was the construction of a roof over the Kop in 1986.

In 1989, a stadium disaster killed 96 Liverpool fans. The disaster was caused by poor crowd management, police control, and, to a lesser extent, inadequate safety measures.

The Lord Justice Taylor presided over the subsequent investigation into the causes of the disaster, which resulted in the Taylor report. The report's recommendations led to, among others, the conversion of all English stadiums into all-seaters and the removal of perimeter fences.

In the early 1990s, Hillsborough became an all-seater stadium, and in 1996 it was one of the playing venues during the Euro 1996 tournament. The stadium hosted three group matches.

Hillsborough's effective capacity has slowly decreased over the years due to safety measures and currently, no more than 33,800 tickets can be sold for any match. However, the club hopes to increase this again to over 36,000.

How to get to Hillsborough

Sheffield Stadium is located in the north-west of the city of Sheffield, about 2.5 kilometers from Sheffield city center and 3 kilometers from Sheffield Rail station. You can reach the stadium by taking the Sheffield Supertram. The tram can be taken from several points in the city centre (e.g. Castle Square, Cathedral, or City Hall). Take the yellow line in the direction of Middlewood. Get off at stop Leppings Lane and it is a few minutes walking to the stadium.

From the bus terminal across the rail station, you can take bus 53 (to Ecclesfield/Parson Cross) or bus 77 (to Chapeltown). The ride takes about 15 minutes.

Address: Hillsborough, Sheffield S6 1SW
