Oakwell Stadium

Key facts

Club: Barnsley FC | Opening: 1888 | Capacity: 23,287 seats

History and description

Oakwell Stadium was built in 1888. It got extensively redeveloped in the 1990s, with only the original main stand from the early 20th century left standing.

First, a new East Stand got built in 1993, followed by a new South Stand in 1995. Works were completed with a new North Stand in 1999.

In recent years, plans have been made to replace the old main stand with a new modern all-seater stand, but it is unlikely that these will get realised in the upcoming years.

How to get to Oakwell

Oakwell Stadium is located just east of Barnsley’s town centre and rail station. The walk will only take 5 to 10 minutes.
