A significant insignificant building


Loyal Member
This building is where Soccer was born.

2 men got together and decided to adapt the mob football games they had seen played in public schools. They had written to the schools for rules and got together and compiled a rule book and formed a football club called Sheffield Football Club.

Remarkably although this is just round the corner from Bramall Lane where Sheffield United play there is nothing to mark this buildings importance in the origin of what is now a worldwide sport. No plaque.
