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 Saturday:
1. Mick Hollinworth - Caricatures
Mick is returning to Oakwell to offer juniors FREE caricatures. The talented artist will be based just outside of the Family Zone from 1.30pm up until 3pm! Drawings normally only take five minutes from start to finish! If you see him, take a memento of your day with you.
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. To celebrate his debut, new signing Jordan Green has signed a number of pictures and will leave them for junior supporters.
4. 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, assist the with the referee's pre-match duties and even accompany a player out on to the pitch!
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 watch the warm-ups from the dugout, before announcing the teams to the entire stadium!
As per last week, a member of Barnsley FC staff will be on the concourse from 2.30pm to select the lucky fan!
5. Fun & Games
Love playing pool? Reckon you can beat your family at Connect4? 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 Connect4.
