Open from 10.30am 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. 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:
1. ARKO Training
Mark from ARKO Training will be back in the Family Zone this week to continue his child friendly first aid training course. This week, Mark will be showing young Reds how to use a defibrillator whilst discussing where they can be found and what to do if somebody was in arrest.
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.
Across the course of the 2018/19 season, a number of items will be given away in the Family Zone. This week Reds Head Coach, Daniel Stendel has signed a number of pictures for supporters to pick up in the Family Zone - FOR FREE!
4. Experience Upgrade (click here for more information)
This week it’s a special one. Every fan who has a ticket for Saturday’s fixture with Luton Town (including season ticket holders) will go into a draw to have the amazing opportunity to be a ‘Director for the Day’.
One Adult and Child will get to experience Saturday’s game at Oakwell in an all new environment. Together, they will eat with Barnsley FC and Luton Town Directors, before watching the action from the Directors Box.
The two lucky winners will also be given the opportunity to ‘shadow’ particular members of the Board, before getting the opportunity to meet players and management.
