Sheffield Wednesday v Swansea City

Date: Saturday, February 23 (3pm)

Address: Hillsborough, Sheffield, S6 1SW

Distance from the Liberty: 228.2 miles


Up to 3,700 away fans are housed in the West Stand (Leppings Lane) at one end of the stadium. It is worth noting that there are several supporting pillars in that area of the ground that could impede your view.

Food available on the concourse includes a range of pies, sausage rolls, burgers and hot dogs.


There is limited street parking available if you arrive early enough on matchday.

Alternatively, there are some unofficial car parks along the A61 that charge around £4, while it will cost £7 to leave your vehicle behind the Wednesday club shop at the stadium.

Another option is to park at Meadowhall Railway Station, near to the well-known shopping centre, for free and then take a yellow Supertram to Leppings Lane for a return price of under £3.


From Swansea, the journey to Sheffield takes around four-and-a-half hours on average, and requires at least one change.

Trains leave at 6.59am, 7.59am, 8.29am and 9.33am, with the return journeys departing at 5.24pm, 5.55pm, 6.23pm, 6.56pm, 7pm and 7.55pm.

Sheffield Railway Station is 3.4 miles from Hillsborough, so you will need to take a taxi or bus to the ground.

Alternatively, you can use the Supertram service. The blue tram towards Malin Bridge stops a 10-minute walk from the stadium, while the yellow tram towards Leppings Lane will stop right outside.
