The rivalry is renowned as one of the most fierce in England but who are the bigger club out of Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United?

It has been a memorable season for Sheffield United as the Blades have finally clinched promotion back to the Championship after a few disappointing seasons in the third tier.

And we will have to wait to see if the Steel City derby will go ahead next season with Sheffield Wednesday currently occupying a play-off position.

Sheffield United narrowly edge the derby victories, winning 45 times in comparison to 40 draws and 42 Wednesday wins.

Both sides can boast a rich history too.

Sheffield Wednesday have won the top flight four times whereas United have won it once; Sheffield United have won 4 FA Cups to Wednesday’s 3.

On paper, the size of these clubs look fairly evenly matched over the course of their respective histories.

So, you must decide who is the bigger club: Sheffield United or Sheffield Wednesday?
