Sheffield United's League One game against Wolves will kick off at 1:25pm to celebrate the club's 125th anniversary.

The match on March 22 coincides with the day the Blades formed in 1889.

United's managing director Mal Brannigan told the official club website: "We would like to sincerely thank South Yorkshire Police and Wolverhampton Wanderers for their help in allowing us to kick-off at 1:25pm.

"When we were asked to bring the game forward we thought this would be a good idea to tailor the kick-off time to help us begin what will be significant year in the club's history.

"Sheffield United remain tremendously proud of our heritage.

"The game will kick-off a year-long celebration of the anniversary of the Blades and more details will follow in due course."
