Barnsley: Ground Guide

Barnsley: Ground Guide

We take a look at Oakwell

Oakwell was opened in 1888, however it has been modernised over the years. The North Stand is the newest stand at Oakwell and is a large single tier stand, housing up to 6,000 fans. Replacing a former open terrace it was opened in 1999. Away supporters are housed in this stand.

 

Capacity

Oakwell has a capacity of 23,287 this ranks Oakwell the sixth smallest ground in the Championship. Barnsley’s modern all seated attendance record came in 2000 on the 11th March in a Division One fixture against Manchester City. The attendance was 22,650.  As a local derby, it will be close to a sell out.  Last season Barnsley averaged just over 12,000.

 

Away end

The away end has a maximum capacity of 6000, however Leeds fans have been allocated 4,400. This is one of the largest away ends in the Championship and there are no restricted views. There is a range of food on offer in the away end. This includes; a range of Pukka Pies (£3.20), Sausage Rolls (£2.60), Burgers (£3.80), Hot Dogs (£3.80), and Chips (£2.60). Please note that the refreshment kiosks are cash only.

 

Travel

For fans travelling by train, Barnsley Railway Station is about a 10 minute walk away from Oakwell, but please take note of the following information HERE. For fans wanting to drive, there is limited parking around the stadium as most parking spaces and car parks are just for permit holders. Fans can try parking at the MetroDome, although it can be slow to get out of after the game has finished.  Barnsley is the second closest away game for Leeds and is only a short 46 mile round trip.
