This is where Sheffield Wednesday FC began 

The Adelphi Hotel where the meeting took place to form Sheffield Wednesday Football Club

This great looking building stood where the Crucible Theatre now stands.

Next time you're in the pub and you chat to your mates about starting something up just think about the consequences

Aren't I right in saying Sheffield United and The Yorkshire County Cricket Club were stated in the same place?

And also Sheffield Football Association.

 

Prior to that I also think that the Sheffield Rules may have been agreed there at an AGM of Sheffield FC?

 

Possibly the most important place in the history of football. But it's not in that London so can't be.

As they're talking about Sheffield FC on FH right now, the football museum is in Manchester

I would be surprised if there was any mention whatsoever about the Adelphi in the museum. There must at least be something about Sheffield FC though surely?
