Topic - Hillsborough Stadium
Hillsborough Stadium (commonly called just Hillsborough) is a sporting venue in Sheffield, England, which is owned by and stages the home games of Sheffield Wednesday, as well as boasting a range of function rooms, and suites, which can be hired out for events. Football has been played at the ground since it was opened on 2 September 1899, when Wednesday moved from their original ground at Olive Grove. Today it is a 39,732 capacity all-seater stadium, making it the largest stadium in the city. It is also the largest club stadium in England outside of the Premier League. The vast majority of the seats are covered. It is located in the Sheffield suburb of Owlerton, but takes its name from the parliamentary constituency in which it lies. - Source: Wikipedia
