Sheffield: The Home of Football

Sheffield: Home of Football

This walking app will take you on a heritage tour around the historic footballing hot spots that shaped not just Sheffield football, but football worldwide.

Between 1857 and 1889 Sheffield had 95 football clubs and the app explores locations associated with these early clubs. While visiting the ten stops over the 4.7 mile walk you will be introduced to the places and the people that made Sheffield the home of Association football.

The app includes audio commentaries, so that you can listen as you walk or simply sit and enjoy in your armchair. As you reach key points along the walk content in the app will be triggered automatically. You will also be able to follow your location on an 1855 map, which will give you a sense of what Sheffield was like at that time.
