Wednesday return to Hillsborough for the first home game of the 2018/19 campaign this weekend.
The preparation for the clash with Hull City is all but complete as Jos Luhukay plots a return to winning ways for Wednesday and a first three points of the new season.
As previously communicated, the front cover of all matchday programmes will have a special Sheffield flavour as we send a member of the first team squad to a renowned area of the Steel City, with the aim of producing an eye-catching cover shot and feature section.
But we are not just stopping there as the Sheffield theme will continue inside the stadium.
Feedback from supporters has indicated a strong desire to embrace the Sheffield music scene at Hillsborough, and those in the industry with links to the club, and we agree this could add a special value to the matchday experience.
With a strong musical heritage in the city, coupled with current and up and coming artists/bands making their own waves, the club feel that embracing and showcasing this talent is a positive step.
Starting from Saturday’s match v the Tigers, we will create our first all-Sheffield playlist, including changes to the more familiar pre-match anthems of yesteryear.
Going forward, we are encouraging supporters to get involved and tell us what music they feel would add to the atmosphere at the game and we’ll add the best to make a fresh playlist each week.
Enjoy the music and most of all, enjoy the game!
