Family Zone vs Portsmouth

11 December 2018

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

The Family Zone is 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. 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.

2. Giveaways

Across the course of the 2018/19 season, a number of items will be given away in the Family Zone. This week, it's the Christmas edition of Toby Tyke's cartoon.  Be sure to pick up a free copy before kick-off and find out if Toby managed to save Christmas!

3. Experience Upgrade

At each home Sky Bet League One fixture, a number of selected supporters have received an ‘Experience Upgrade’. This has seen young fans become a member of the matchday squad, watch warm-ups from the dugout and even assist the referee with his pre-match duties.

This week it’s a special one. Every supporter under the age of 13 who has a ticket will go in to a draw for the opportunity to join our Flagbearers on the pitch!  

As per last week, a member of Barnsley FC staff will be on the concourse from 2.30pm to select a lucky fan!

4. 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.

5. Santa Claus

With the clash against Portsmouth being our last Oakwell fixture before Christmas, a special guest is scheduled to make an appearance at approximately 2.30pm, before meeting other fans at half-time!

6. Half Time Sing-a-long

Half time is set to be special, as Janine Dyer is back by popular demand. She will be performing a number of festive classics on Oakwell, that all supporters can join in with.

Tickets for Saturday's game remain on sale to all fans. Tickets can be purchased either in the Reds Superstore, over the phone on 01226 211 183 or online.
