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 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.
Across the course of the 2018/19 season, a number of items will be given away in the Family Zone. This week Toby Tyke has been busy and has left a number of cartoons scattered around Oakwell for junior fans!
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. ARKO Training
Mark from Arko Training is back in the Family Zone on Saturday, delivering yet another fantastic, educational, First Aid workshop!
6. Badge Making
After the fantastic feedback from his last visit, Dan is back with more creative, arty fun!
