Box to Box – An evening to launch Curtis Woodhouse’s Autobiography

On Thursday 6th October, Sheffield United will be proud to play a part in yet another major event in the life of one of its former players.

Sport cannot have seen too many characters like Curtis Woodhouse – from his days as an apprentice with the Blades, to becoming its youngest ever captain in the FA Cup, to England, the Premier League, boxing title fights and victories, football management and beyond.

It is a story that you just couldn’t make up. Woodhouse has now told the full story, an honest account of his journey in ‘Box to Box’.

Bramall Lane is very much his spiritual home, and as he famously says, “Once a Blade, always a Blade” – with that in mind it is fitting that the book sees its launch at S2.

The Platinum Suite doors will open at 7.30pm with a pie and pea supper served at 8pm – Woodhouse will then take the stage at 9pm for a Q&A session before signing copies of the book which will be exclusively available on the night priced at just £18.99 per copy.

Tickets for the event, which are priced at £25, are now on sale from the Commercial Department on 0114 253 7200 or by emailing

There is also a chance for 30 people to join Woodhouse on this special night for an intimate Champagne reception in the Legends of the Lane. These tickets are priced at £50 per head and include the best seats in the room for the aforementioned Q&A.
