Barnsley Football Club is delighted to announce the launch of our brand new 1887 Business Club!

As part of the scheme, local businesses will have a unique opportunity to network and gain access to exclusive Barnsley Football Club experiences.

At Barnsley Football Club, we understand the importance of putting our local community at the forefront of our thinking, to continue to promote businesses and firms from within the region to help Barnsley flourish.

In our 135th year as a club, this distinctive package gives you official Club Partner status, coverage across our print and digital platforms, that will be seen by thousands of Reds supporters, as well as discounts on all merchandise at the Reds Superstore.

You can also enjoy viewing a fixture of your choice, at Oakwell, from the Copier Systems Legends Suite, enjoying magnificent hospitality in the process.


Paul Ibbetson, Managing Director of DX, said: As a lifelong fan of Barnsley spanning 45 years, I was delighted to be given the opportunity to become a partner for this great club through the business I am Managing Director for, DX – we now sponsor the ‘famous’ West Stand.

“As a proud partner it has provided me with a wonderful insight into the workings of the club and the opportunity to meet the staff that make the club tick everyday behind the scenes. I have also had the privilege of meeting the team, management, and players on a frequent basis which, as a fan, was a lifelong dream.

“Under Khaled’s leadership, the engagement has improved significantly, and the partners are now involved on a regular basis regarding a wide array of club matters. As a lifelong fan, businessman and now partner, I can provide views from many perspectives ensuring that we get our football club back engaged with the community and enjoying success on and off the field.”

Barnsley Football Club recognise that no two businesses are the same. Therefore, the 1887 Business Club is designed to cater to your business’ needs and resources, via a structure that offers alternating levels of sponsorship. Existing partners of Barnsley FC will automatically be enrolled into the 1887 Business Club and receive accredited benefits, branding, and event invitations; a £250 donation to Reds in the Community can be achieved via a successful 1887 Business Club referral!

To celebrate the launch of the 1887 Business Club, we will be hosting an inaugural breakfast in the Copier Systems Legends Suite on Thursday 23 June – fixture release day. Here, you and your business will have the chance to hear from CEO, Khaled El-Ahmad and Head Coach Michael Duff ahead of the upcoming season.
