As we approach 10,000 season ticket sales for the 2021/22 season, we would like to thank you for your continued support. Oakwell has not been the same without you and we are all looking forward to the day that supporters return to their seats.
Head Coach, Valérien Ismaël said: “Although I have not yet met our supporters in the stadium, I can feel the intensity and passion that they have for this Club. It will be a real boost for me and the players when they return and of course, we hope that it is in time for the play-off fixture.
“I am well aware that so many people backed the Club financially during the most difficult of times. I am immensely proud that the Club has been able to give our fans joy, belief and satisfaction this season. Things are going in the right direction at the moment in the UK and we can start to look forward, but when we reflect, we must be thankful.
“I must also thank supporters who have committed to the upcoming season. We enter the play-offs with real motivation and hopefully we can reward our fans with some great performances in our final games.”
With the early bird deadline now passed, existing seasonal members have until 31 May to retain their seat for the new season. Following that date, all unrenewed seats will become live for everybody.
With questions regarding capacities and attendances remaining ahead of the new season, the Club have made the decision to put a limit on seasonal sales until further clarification is granted.
Regardless of divisional status, there is always a desire to sell-out Oakwell. Yet, with such uncertainty still, it is deemed essential to provide members with value for money. The primary method for securing this, is to fulfil our commitment by doing all that we can to ensure that 21/22 members watch as many of their entitled league fixtures, in their selected seat, as possible. To assist with this standpoint, 21/22 seasonal memberships will be capped at 11,000 sales.
Once the 11,000 figure is hit, a waiting list will be created allowing further supporters to register interest. Once we have assurances from the relevant agencies that we can accommodate in excess of 11,000 supporters, the sales process will resume. If this step is implemented, further information will be shared.
All at Barnsley FC would like to thank our members, new and old, for their incredible support during these times.
