FOOTBALL fever is spreading a cross the city as Sheffield United’s big day at Wembley beckons.
The Blades have launched a range of limited edition merchandise ahead of the League One play-off final clash against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
The club hopes the goods, which include branded clothing, foam hands and gesture hats, will create a sea of red and white in the stadium.
Some diehard Blades were invited to Bramall Lane to model the gear as it went on sale at the ground’s superstore.
Dave McCarthy, managing director of Sheffield United, said: “We wanted to launch the merchandise with our supporters who will be part of a noisy red-and-white army of Blades fans travelling to Wembley for the game.”
The items are also available online at www.sufcdirect.co.uk.
