What's On In The Family Zone?

15 August 2018

Open from 1.30pm and based in the Investment Room East Stand Upper, the newly refurbished Family Zone is the best place for young children to sit and experience the match.

The Family Zone will be a regular host to a number of exclusive and child friendly activities for the entire family to get involved with throughout the season. There is also a unique catering menu, featuring special options created specifically for children. All activities will be run pre-match, and once the action is underway, they will be carefully stored until the next home fixture.

Take a look at what we've got in store for you this weekend:

1. Petting Zoo Experience

Snakes, lizards and a range of other animals, offering fans a unique experience, to pet and hold the creatures. They’ll be found just outside the Family Zone, so get in early and beat the queues!

 2. Meet Toby Tyke

No visit to Oakwell would be complete without meeting our mischievous mascot, Toby Tyke. Toby will be prowling around the Family Zone prior to kick-off, so be sure to grab him for a selfie and hi-five.

 3. Giveaways

Across the course of the 2018/19 season, a number of items will be given away in the Family Zone. This week, Reds Goalkeeper, Adam Davies has signed a number of pictures for supporters to pick up in the Family Zone - FOR FREE!

 4. Experience Upgrade

Every week, one lucky fan who has a ticket for the Family Zone will be randomly selected to receive an ‘experience upgrade’. This week, one family will be given the unique opportunity to join in with the Flagbearers on the Oakwell pitch! As per last week, a member of Barnsley FC staff will be on the concourse from 2.30pm to select a lucky fan!

 5. Player Visit

How often do fans get to meet their favourite players… in person?! Every week, two players from the squad will head up to the Family Zone at 2.15pm for pictures and autographs. They will only be around for ten minutes, so get in early and don’t miss them!

 6. Fun & Games

Love playing pool? Reckon you can beat your family at Connect 4? The Family Zone will have a number of other activities for children to engage with. This will range from a colouring station, through to table football and Connect 4.

Sound good? Tickets remain on sale for Saturday's fixture against AFC Wimbledon.
