The oldest football ground in the world in Crosspool is to host a Boxing day rematch between the world’s two oldest football clubs.
On Boxing day 1860, Hallam FC played Sheffield FC in the world’s first inter-club football match. The 2010 rematch at Sandygate marks the 150th anniversary of this historical game.
The day will include refreshments plus pre-match and half-time entertainment. And of course the Plough pub is just over the road from the ground.
Tickets are on sale now and are limited to Sandygate’s capacity of about 1,000. Standing is £10/£7 concessions, seating is £15/£12 concessions.
As part of the 150th anniversary celebrations, an England C team will also play a Hallam XI at Sandygate on Tuesday 19 October.
