We are celebrating our 130th anniversary this weekend as we welcome Aston Villa to Oakwell for a 5:30pm kick off, live on Sky Sports!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have a number of special events, which are listed below....
- Former players* have been invited to Oakwell as guests of the Club, and they will be introduced to the crowd prior to kick off
- We have a special 130 page edition of our matchday BE RED programme; the cover was specially painted by Reds fan and artist, Ben Mosley and includes interviews galore with players and staff, past and present as well as our usual content.
- Inside 130 lucky copies of the programme will be a Golden Ticket which entitles the recipient to a free '130th Anniversary' limited edition scarf.
- Reds fans will once again be able to use the Layar App with this edition of BE RED, to get exclusive, augmented reality features.
- Using Snapchat, Reds fans will have access to a special Barnsley FC filter throughout matchday at Oakwell, and around town all weekend.
- Bottles of Coors Light, hot drinks and soft drinks will be priced at £1.30 between 4pm and 5pm.
