Our final home Sky Bet Championship clash of the 21/22 season will now kick-off at an earlier time on Saturday 30 April.
The fixture against Preston North End was originally scheduled to commence at 3pm. However, following extensive consultation with the Safety Advisory Group, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and South Yorkshire Police, this game will now kick-off at 12:30pm.
Barnsley Football Club submitted detailed proposals to reassure key stakeholders that supporters from both Clubs could attend this fixture safely at the original time of 3pm, but unfortunately this was not achievable.
We must thank the EFL and Preston North End for their support on this matter whilst also apologising to supporters for the short notice and inconvenience this may cause.
Preston’s last visit to Oakwell ended in a Reds victory, as goals from Alex Mowatt and Victor Adeboyejo were enough to overturn an early Sean Maguire effort back in December 2020
