Here is how Sheffield United have celebrated previous promotion successes

There were celebratory scenes at the weekend when a win and results elsewhere ensured Sheffield United were promoted to the Premier League.

Blades fans are now looking forward to more organised festivities in the next few weeks, with full details to be confirmed soon.

In May 2006, when the team last made it to the top flight, they celebrated with an open top bus parade from Bramall Lane to the town hall.

A year later, United went back down to the Championship, so they will be hoping the 2019/2020 campaign is more successful.

After some time in the doldrums including another relegation, the Blades topped the League One table and sealed promotion in April 2017.

Another open top bus parade followed, with some fans setting off smoke bombs and songs echoing through the city. Wilder and his team appeared on the town hall balcony, where they led a number of chants.

Billy Sharp, who has now captained United to two promotions, also addressed the faithful outside the ground.

“I can’t thank the staff and the gaffer enough”, he said. 

“Every single player deserves credit. [Wilder] has produced something I don’t think anyone else will ever do.”

The 2017 promotion also led to an unforgettable video of Wilder speaking to a fan channel.

After talking about pushing players in the fountain and getting his hair cut every three weeks, Wilder recalls walking through Sheffield and wondering “what might happen in May, what’ll it be like if we produce.”

With United having produced their second promotion in three years under the affable leadership of Wilder, there is no doubt celebrations in the coming weeks will be even bigger.
