Sheffield United have applied for planning permission to add 5,400 seats to the South Stand. The stand which currently seats 7,500 fans would if the scheme goes ahead seat just under 13,000. Like the recently extended Main Stand at Anfield Liverpool, this would be achieved by building behind and above the existing stand, adding an additional tier.
An Artists Impression Of The Proposed South Stand
As can be seen in the artists impression above, the proposed stand looks quite simply stunning and will and truly transform the landscape and the overall look of Bramall Lane, which is the oldest professional football ground in the World. The development would also see the inclusion of new corporate and event facilities, offices and press area. It is hoped that the Council will give the green light to the application by the end of April.
