Barnsley Football Club want to recognise, highlight and reward the service and achievements of individuals who have made a significant impact at Oakwell, whether that be as players or staff.
To be considered for induction, individuals must be either retired or, in exceptional cases where a playing career is still ongoing, be at least 30 years of age. All inductees must also have played/managed for at least five years in England.
Since the inception of Barnsley Football Club, fans have been the cornerstone of the club. This will give every fan the opportunity to be heard and to say thank you to the greats of Barnsley FC.
All new members will be added at a special annual induction ceremony, within the reigns of an Oakwell hospitality event.
As well as a digital Hall Of Fame accessible to all fans at no cost, with inductee profiles, pictures and information, a physical site will also be created in the Boardroom Corridor in the West Stand, to be added to year on year.
Each supporter will have their opportunity each year to vote for an individual from the shortlist who they believe should be inducted into the Oakwell Hall Of Fame. This will be done either digitally via this very website, or in person at Oakwell.
The fans vote is arguably the most valued of all. It’s the supporters’ opportunity to honour Barnsley FC individuals, and ensure that they remain etched into the annals of our great club.
