The Sheffield United F.C. Player of the Year is an annual award presented to players of Sheffield United on behalf of the club's fans to recognise an outstanding contribution to the previous season. First presented in 1967 the award was organised by the Official Supporters Club and voted for by its members.[1] The award was officially recognised and commemorated by the club and since the late 1990s has been presented at a gala dinner. From around 2000 the award was widened to include voting from the general fanbase and various other awards have also been presented including Young Player of the Year and Goal of the Season.
