Media Requests


Media Accreditation


Media requests for first team matches at Oakwell can be made online through the DataCo Press Accreditation booking system, via i-PBS. Please note, all media requests must be received at least 48 hours before kick-off.

You will be unable to apply via i-PBS after this point and the Club will not accept requests made direct to the Club after the deadline.

For the current 2017/18 season, the Club will operate a barcoded ticketing system for entry to the stadium. Press tickets and passes will be available for collection from the Main Reception at Oakwell.

All journalists and photographers must have a Media Accreditation number provided by Football DataCo and provide their relevant identification when requested by Barnsley Football Club staff.

Entrance to the stadium is via Gate 40 of the West Stand.

Limited parking for press and media personnel is available in the C.K. Beckett Stand Car Park upon prior request on a first come, first served basis.




As well as your ticket, you will receive a Barnsley Football Club accreditation pass. This MUST be shown upon request when you are inside the stadium. Your pass will include the areas of access you have been granted.

The Head Coach/Manager of both teams will be brought up to the West Stand Media Suite post-match. Written press should remain there for the press conferences to begin.

Radio/TV journalists will be instructed by the Barnsley FC Media Team as to where they can interview players and staff.
