You shouldn't be surprised by the range of sport you'll see in Sheffield, and you'll probably have heard of Sheffield as 'the first National City of Sport' but did you know that there's a lot more than that to thank the city for? Sheffield is home to the oldest football club in the world... recognised by FIFA, Sheffield FC has been in existance since 1857. That means we can genuinely claim Sheffield as 'the home of football'.
As well as football; Rugby (Union and League) or Basketball or for two weeks each year Snooker at the World Championships held at the Crucible Theatre, speed merchants can also get their fix in Sheffield. Watch riders on two wheels whizzing around the Speedway track or hounds on four legs chasing the hare at the local greyhound meeting.
Study the form & get some last minute tips or simply enjoy a sip of Champagne and drink in more than the atmosphere... Race meetings at Doncaster include the oldest classic horse race in England at the September St Leger meeting.
