Historically Yorkshire most successful club of all time, the oldest league club in the county (5th in England) after being formed in 1867, as an add-on to 'The Wednesday' cricket club. Nicknamed the Owls, origionally known as the Blades until a stadium move to OWLerton. Currently managed by Paul Sturrock who took the reigns from prvious manager Chris Turner. Rivals include, Sheffield United, Rotherham and Barnsley. However due to the amount of clubs in Yorhshire teams such as Huddersfield Town, Leeds United and Doncaster Rovers may also be considered 'rivals'. Sheffield Wednesday play their home games at Hillsborough Stadium which has a capacity of 39,859. Last season were the best supported club in the Championship (24,853), ahead other of Yorkshire clubs Sheffield United (23,650) and Leeds United (22,354) - both finished in the top six, compared to Wednesday's 19th place stance. Recently were promoted to the Championship after two painful years in the third tier - coinciding with Wednesday's second worst finish EVER. Now on track to make a steady return the the Premiership.
