Family Zone - Boxing Day

26 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 on Boxing Day:

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, flagbear from the dugout and even assist the referee with his pre-match duties.

This week, we’re giving fans another fantastic opportunity to sit in Daniel’s seat, and catch the pre-match warm-ups!

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. ARKO Training

Family Zone favourite, Mark, is back for a Boxing Day special. Mark has been on hand on numerous occasions this season, teaching young supporters some essential First Aid, but now, he’s got a range of games to test your knowledge!
