We love that the Blades Family Hub will be open to supporters and their families before all home matches as this gives a great opportunity for them to enhance their matchday experience and provide a real 'family day out'.

Our Blades Family Hub is inclusive for juniors aged between 4-16 to join in with a variety of games and activities in a safe environment, whilst making new friends and most importantly having fun. Our Blades Family Hub will be staffed by our very own Sheffield United Community Foundation staff team, as seen in our John Street Family Stand, and stewards will be present to ensure the safety of all supporters.

Throughout the year we will be running a number of competitions and events, including FIFA tournaments, table tennis knockouts and quizzes. Best of all, our Blades Family Hub is completely FREE to attend and all you need to do is show your match ticket to the steward on the door. Be sure to get down early though as once we are full, we will be working on a 2 in, 2 out basis.

We look forward to seeing you all there and hope you enjoy our new Blades Family Hub.
