The Steel City Cup was a pre-season "friendly competition" played between Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United annually for four years between 1993 and 1996. Wednesday only entered a reserve team in 1996, as they concentrated on their preparations for the new Premier League campaign and this proved to be the catalyst for the Cup's demise. The 1993 game also doubled up as a testimonial for Derek Dooley.

The trophy stated life in 1990 and doubled up as Lawrie Madden's testimonial & was a pre season affair at Hillsborough in August 1990 in front of 19,000 fans that saw Wednesday win 3-0 at Hillsborough.
