Sheffield United Gain Promotion To Premier League

Sheffield United have been promoted to the Premier League for the second time, ending their 12-year absence from the top flight.


Sheffield’s promotion was guaranteed after Leeds United could only draw 1-1 at Elland Road against Aston Villa on Sunday.

It is the first time Sheffield are back in the Premier League since the 2006-07 season.

They had defeated visiting Ipswich Town 2-0 on Saturday, which strengthened their chance of promotion.

Also on Saturday, Norwich City secured promotion to the Premier League after they beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1.

The third team that will join Norwich and Sheffield in the Premier League next season, will be decided via a play-off among four teams.
