Sheffield United Football Club represents South Yorkshire in the Premier League. With a history dating back to their foundation in 1889. Known as The Blades due to the city's history of steel production, Sheffield have played their games at Bramall Lane since their very inception, and have won the English top flight once and the FA Cup 4 times, ending up second place only twice in their history. Sheffield United were the first club in English football to achieve promotion from the newly formed Second Division to the First Division and was a founding member of the Premier League established during the 90s. Sheffield United have the distinction of playing across the top four tiers of the English footballing pyramid, and though they have only recently returned to the Premier League, much of their history was spent in the top flight of English football. They contested the Steel City derby with cross-town rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
After twelve years of languishing in the lower leagues, Sheffield United has fought off the expectation that they would be relegated in their first season back, and ended up ninth in the standings. Now fully owned by Saudi Arabia's Prince Abdullah following a messy ownership dispute, Sheffield United is well-placed to continue punching above their weight and to develop into a true footballing powerhouse.
