World's oldest football club reveals plans for new stadium in Sheffield

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

Sheffield FC, the world's oldest football club have unveiled plans to build a new stadium in Sheffield.

The Northern Premier League side have been playing in the nearby town of Dronfield since leaving Don Valley Stadium in 2001. The club is now proposing a move back to Sheffield with plans to build a new 4,000 capacity stadium in the Meadowhead area of the city.

If approved, the new stadium would also include a heritage centre, aiming to become the "home of football" for fans across the globe.

The stadium will be funded by selling the club's existing ground for housing. If planning permission is granted, the stadium is expected to take around a year to build.

The club have released a video of the new stadiums which can be found below:
