Following discussions between Barnsley FC, South Yorkshire Police and Sheffield Wednesday FC, an agreement has been made to move the game currently scheduled for 3pm on Saturday 28 January, to Sunday 29 January at 1pm.
Lengthy discussions around ticketing have taken place over recent weeks to maximise the amount of people allowed to attend what is likely to be a highly anticipated fixture for both sides.
In order to achieve this and to satisfy all parties tasked with managing public safety, an agreement was struck to move the kick off to 1pm on Sunday 29 January.
Supporters are reminded that if either or both the Reds and Sheffield Wednesday progress in the Emirates FA Cup, this fixture will be rearranged for a later date due to the fourth round of the competition set to be played on the weekend of 28 January.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Tickets for this fixture have not yet gone on sale due to the anticipation of the Emirates FA Cup Round 3 results for both sides, to be played across Saturday 7 January and Sunday 8 January.
Further information on this fixture will be released in due course.
