Welcome to the Sheffield Eagles Heritage Project - collecting, recording and sharing the history of the Sheffield Eagles.

Since the Club played their first game on 2nd September 1984 there have been highs and lows, with plenty of stories to be told about the Club, many of them never collected or shared before. This project is a chance to look back to where the Club has come from but also look forward to the future at a time of change and new opportunities for the Club. It's a a two-year project running from 2022 to 2024, led by the Eagles Foundation and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
