Sheffield Stadium, Owlerton, has two distinct features – as good a shape as any in the world for the racing greyhound to demonstrate its ability in terms of speed and fairness; and secondly, a unique sporting and cheerful atmosphere provided by its Yorkshire racegoers.
The standard of the bar and restaurant facilities are second to none with the restaurant seating 140 with parties catered for both on and off greyhound racing nights.
Situated one and a half miles to the north of the city centre, next to Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough football pitch, it is easily accessible from the M1. Sheffield looks forward to making you welcome.
