Countdown to Old Trafford

We’d like to wish the very best of luck to Sheffield United as they prepare for a huge FA Cup clash with Premier League giants Manchester United this weekend.

The Blades were given a dream draw against the 20-time league champions in the third round of England’s most famous trophy, with the match taking place at Old Trafford on Saturday January 9th.

The game, which kicks off at 17:30, will be screened across the country live on BT Sport where the Sheffield United shirt and John Holland logo will be seen by thousands tuning in.

8,543 lucky Blades fan have snapped up tickets for the game, which sees the two teams go head-to-head for the first time since 2007.

Our managing director Mark Holland will join the travelling supporters that are making the trip from Sheffield to Manchester.

He said: “This is obviously a huge game in the calendar for Blades fans and as sponsors of the club we are delighted to see them given a dream draw against Man United.

“As the old cliché goes, anyone can beat anyone in the FA Cup, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for a Sheffield United upset this weekend. Best of luck to all the lads.”
