Question about Bramall Lane

Recommended Posts

This is one for the stats guys, so as we are aware England will play a group match at Bramall Lane during the 2021 rugby world cup, meaning that Bramall Lane will have then hosted an England team playing rugby, cricket and football, my question is are there any other grounds/venues that can make this claim?

 

Cheers

 Maybe Northampton's old ground which also doubled as a county cricket venue. Just guessing here,  as it was the only other 3 sided football ground that I can recall from way back when.

They've had them all down at the lane. Harlem Globetrotters, Billy Graham, Cliff Richard, Bruce Springsteen but not as far as I know, the queen.  She must be a Wednesdayite because she's been to Hillsborough twice.  :)

Everton played at Anfield before a rent dispute with the ground owners saw them move to Goodison Park  then Liverpool FC were formed to play at Anfield.
