Burton 2-1 Blades - report
Quote
Despite taking the lead through Billy Sharp, United suffered a narrow pre-season loss at Burton Albion on Tuesday night.

The Brewers levelled before the interval through former Blade John Brayford, before Marcus Harness won it with the goal of the night in stoppage-time.

Chesterfield 0-5 Blades - report
Quote
A Billy Sharp hat-trick helped United down near-neighbours Chesterfield at the Proact Stadium.

The Blades' pre-season preparations continued with a win in Derbyshire, as Sharp took the headlines following goals either side of the interval, whilst new signings Callum Robinson and Luke Freeman were also on target as United enjoyed a comfortable win in sultry conditions.

Sheffield United ownership: Prince Abdullah wins court battle
Quote
  Saudi prince has won a High Court battle over the control of Premier League side Sheffield United.

Kevin McCabe and Prince Abdullah Bin Mosaad Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud were locked in a legal battle over their 50-50 ownership of the Blades.

Mr Justice Fancourt ruled Mr McCabe must now sell his stake to Prince Abdullah for 5m.

Mr McCabe, a lifelong Blades fan, said he was "bitterly disappointed" and was considering an appeal.

The court heard Sheffield-born Mr McCabe had invested 100m in the club over a number of years.

He met Prince Abdullah in 2013 while looking for fresh investment in the club, then in League One.

Prince Abdullah, a member of the Saudi royal family, invested 10m but the two men fell out in 2017.

Sheffield United Ltd, the company run by Mr McCabe and his family, eventually made an offer to buy out the prince for 5m.

But the offer also gave the prince's company, UTB LLC, the option to buy Mr McCabe's shareholding at the same price and a counter notice was served in January 2018.

Mr Justice Fancourt said Mr McCabe had "injected tens of millions of pounds into the club out of love and loyalty, not for financial return".

But he ruled the contract of sale and purchase of Sheffield United Ltd's shares could not be set aside.

He also dismissed a claim for damages, saying UTB LLC had not conducted affairs in a manner unfairly prejudicial to the interests of Sheffield United Ltd.

The judge said UTB LLC would also have to buy the club's property assets from Sheffield United Ltd. This includes the Bramall Lane stadium and the Sheffield United hotel.

In a 138-page judgment, delivered in London on Monday, Mr Justice Fancourt said the club was now worth "in the region of 100m".

In a statement issued after the ruling, a spokesman for Mr McCabe said: "He has supported Sheffield United through thick and thin going back to the 1950s and wishes nothing more than success for the club, its supporters and the many staff employed by it.

"Mr McCabe sincerely hopes that he is proved wrong in relation to his deep misgivings about the suitability of Prince Abdullah as an appropriate custodian of Sheffield United."
 
Prince Abdullah, a grandson of modern Saudi Arabia founder King Abdulaziz, said he was delighted by the judgement.

"No owner, director, coach or player is bigger than the club but together with the fans, we all share the common desire to make the club ever greater," he said.

Sheffield United released a statement saying the judgement "brings an end to the uncertainty over Sheffield United's future ownership and allows us to focus our full attention on the season ahead".

Club statement
Quote
This morning, the High Court of Justice, Business and Property Courts of England and Wales, issued its judgment requiring Sheffield United Limited (SUL), a company controlled by Mr Kevin McCabe, to sell its shares in Blades Leisure Limited (Blades), the parent of Sheffield United Football Club Ltd, to UTB, LLC, a company owned by H.R.H. Prince Abdullah bin Mosa'ad bin Abdulaziz Al Sa'ud.

The judgment also dismissed all of the claims which SUL had made against Prince Abdullah, UTB and SUFC and Blades board member Mr Yusuf Giansiracusa.

After over 20 months of contentious litigation, the Club is delighted that this judgment brings an end to the uncertainty over Sheffield United's future ownership and allows us to focus our full attention on the season ahead.

Sheffield United: Kevin McCabe questions suitability of new owner Prince Abdullah
Quote
McCabe was forced to sell his 50% stake in the Premier League side because of a high-court ruling, and says he regrets selling 50% to the Saudi in 2013.
Lifelong Blades fan McCabe said he had "hesitation and concern" and would consider a court appeal.

Bramall Lane to feature in FIFA 20
Quote
Blades fans across the world will be able to play in our famous Bramall Lane home, in the latest installment of the FIFA franchise.

For the first time ever, Bramall Lane will feature in the EA sports game, with footage captured at the club's recent Premier League media day.

FIFA 20 will also feature the 3D head scans of the playing squad, although these scans will enter the game towards the end 2019.

EA's partnership with the Premier League was expanded in 2016 after the organisation announced that they would be sharing sponsorship across various platforms along with creating all stadiums within the game.

Before Bramall Lane was introduced, Blades fans would see their United favourites take to the field on the fictional 'Ivy Lane'. But supporters can now enjoy seeing the Lane in its full glory.

FIFA 20 launches on 27th September across all gaming platforms.
