The Reds take on Aston Villa at Oakwell, and we want you to come and celebrate our 130th anniversary with us!

Back on September 17th 1887, Barnsley St. Peter's faced off against Manor House of Ward Green in what was its first official match as a football club. 

Now, 130 years and a whole lot of history later, Barnsley welcome Aston Villa to Oakwell in the Sky Bet Championship this Saturday 16th September 2017, live on Sky Sports for a 5:30pm evening kick-off. 

This will be our anniversary weekend and we have plans to celebrate our unique history and commemorate this momentous occasion throughout Saturday's fixture. 

These plans will be released over the course of the week across all of our social media channels. So stay tuned!
