Barnsley FC - Oakwell
With a capacity of more than 23,000, Oakwell is more than double the size of the average home gate. A nice modern stadium with one stand in need of redevelopment. The West Stand has wooden flooring in the upper tier and there are some 'issues' with the roof, all of which culminating in the club announcing back in 2008 that they would be knocking it down and re-building it. If this was to happen, it would increase capacity by just under 4,500.
Visiting supporters are seated in the North Stand. You'll normally get about 2,000 tickets but if there is more demand the number can rise to around 6,000. It's not recommended that away fans drink in Barnsley city centre at all. So if you do it might be a good idea to cover up any colours.
Oakwell seating plan:
Where To Drink
The Metro Dome, which serves food till 2pm, The Coach and Horses and The East Deane Working Mens' Club both on Doncaster Road are reportedly away fan friendly. The East Deane Club serves food from a hatch but you have to sign in to enter. Children are welcome however, if accompanied by an adult.
Parking is freely available on site at the club. There are two large car parks, one for home and one for visiting supporters which allow easy access to and from the stadium.
