Bramall Lane Stadium, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4SU
Telephone: 0114 2215757

There's no doubting Bramall Lane is an impressive ground. It's massive and half of Reading's end will probably be closed - yet we still have a massive allocation of 2,500. You can buy your ticket without problem on the day.

The "Golden Lion" pub is located just up the road from the away end and is a good choice for away fans.

By train, the ground is a 15 minute walk from Sheffield station - so no problems there.
By car, leave the M1 at junction 34 and follow signs for Sheffield City Centre. When you get on the inner ring road continue to follow signs for the A621 towards Baslow and Brammal Lane will be signposted.
