Sheffield FC Rulebook

Sheffield FC – The Worlds Oldest and First Football Club formed in 1857 have recently discovered that a piece of their very early history with be auctioned by Sotheby’s between 12th and 20th of July.

Unfortunately we missed out on bringing the rulebook home and lost to a bid of £56700.

Message from SFC Chairman Richard Tims:

 ''I would like to pass on thanks to everyone that donated towards our crowdfunding campaign to buy the copy of the 1859 Rule Book auctioned by Sotherbys . Unfortunately we were unable to secure the book. The Document sold for £56700.

I am actively trying to find out who the winning bidder is and hope they are a friend of the Club.

We will contact all donors and offer to refund their donation.''
