Owls fans to watch Bramall Lane derby at Hillsborough

Last updated : 12 January 2009 By Chris Morris

Sheffield Wednesday are set to offer their supporters the chance to watch the away game against Sheffield United live on a big screen at Hillsborough Stadium.

The club announced the proposal on Monday via the official website and both clubs have agreed the deal, however, football league rules state that all away tickets for any fixture must be sold in their entirety before the screened beam back can be officially confirmed.

As was announced last week, Sheffield United have given Wednesday the same allocation as last season - the bottom tier of the Bramall Lane end which houses around 3,000 supporters.

Many Wednesday fans who attended this fixture last April were disappointed with the way they were treated and a number of measures have been adopted on the advice of the police in order to try and prevent similar problems this time around.

Tickets for Owls fans go on sale next Monday to season tickets holders, and adult tickets are priced at £29.
