Sheffield United is one of the clubs in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. They then play cross-city rivals Sheffield Wednesday in what is now called ‘Steel City Derbies’ due to the steel industry in the area. The club has featured in some pop culture and media, like the child wearing a 1990s Blades shirt in the 2005 Batmand Begins, and the reference to the club by the Prisoner’s Wives.

In signing with Errea in 2022, Sheffield United became part of the United World Network that included Beerschot AV in Belgium, Châteauroux LB in France, Kerala United in India and Al Hilal United in the UAE. Part of the deal was that United World clubs, most especially Sheffield United, were to receive bespoke kits from the Italian company.

Sheffield United 23/24 Home Shirt

Sheffield United had Errea produce for them a traditional red and white striped look for their 2023/24 home shirt. But in a nod to the 1997/98 home shirt, the striping had above-average width to them and with noticeable black borders between them. The result was a look where the red stripes occupied the centre and the flanks, with the white ones gaining prominence in-between. Launching under the tagline ‘Steel City, Rising’ the shirt was meant to capture the evolution of the club and city from their humble origins up to their successes and highlights. The red raglan sleeves connected the collar and the sleeve cuffs, both of which were black with a white middle striping. A white ‘Blades’ symbol signed off the look at the back right below the collar.

It ended up a winning shirt as the club secured a promotion back to the Premier League.

The distinctness of the Sheffield United adidas 2020/21 home was due to the use of pale pink as the colour base of the shirt. On top of the uniqueness of the colour choice, the club’s new away kit also featured a subtle jacquard print similar to the one used in the Juventus 19-20 Third kit. The three black stripes on each shoulder were elements introduced by adidas on their recent kit releases.

Other black applications were the trimmings near the edge of the sleeves’ openings and the adidas logo on the right chest. The club’s crest was on the left chest while their main sponsor’s branding took a significant space of the centre of the body. The shorts of Sheffield’s new away strip was black.


Sheffield United were founded in 1889 and entered the football league in 1892. They were a professional team almost from their inception. The Blades as they are nicknamed play at Bramall Lane a 30,936 capacity stadium in Sheffield, England.

Sheffield United won the English league in 1898 and had four FA Cup wins to their name. They were immortalised in Premiership history, having Brian Deane score the first ever Premier League goal in 1992 against Manchester United. Sheffield United along with Arsenal were the first team to have their match broadcast on radio, during their game in 1927.

Their home shirts are red and white striped, along with black shorts and socks. Famous fan Sean Bean wore the teams colours in the movie When Saturday Comes.
