Sheffield Wednesday F.C. iPhone apps for supporters

By Marlon Votta - Sep 27, 2011

Fans of the Owls can keep track and get great songs of their team with easy to use apps compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Sheffield Wednesday Football Club are based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, who are currently competing in the Football League One. Sheffield Wednesday are one of the oldest professional clubs in the world and the fourth oldest in the English league. It was a cricket club when it formed in 1820 as The Wednesday Cricket Club (named after the day of the week when they played their matches). A meeting on the evening of Wednesday 4 September 1867 at the Adelphi Hotel established a footballing side to keep the team together and fit during the winter months. The Wednesday, as they were named until 1929, were founding members of The Football Alliance in 1889, and its first champions that inaugural season.

The Wednesday joined The Football League three years later when the leagues merged. Sheffield Wednesday were also one of the founding members of The Premier League in 1992. Their main rivals are Sheffield United, the two clubs having contested the Steel City derby on a regular basis for 100 years. Hull City, Barnsley, Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Rotherham, Chesterfield and Doncaster Rovers are also local rivals. The Owls have spent the majority of their history in the top flight of football since joining the Football League in 1892. They have won four League titles, three FA Cups and one League Cup, but their League Cup triumph in 1991 is their only major trophy since 1935. They play their home matches at Hillsborough Stadium in the northwestern suburb of Hillsborough, built in 1899 when the lease expired at their previous ground of Olive Grove. We thought it would be a good idea to let fans in on a couple of apps available.
