Tyke the Time to Read This!

Burnley FC have contacted Vital Burnley with some important information regarding our clash against the Tykes at Oakwell on Boxing Day.

South Yorkshire Police have provided the following details regarding travel to the ground and facilities available.

The message reads as follows:

Welcome to Barnsley.

Please take a few moments to read the below information

South Yorkshire Police wish you a safe and enjoyable fixture. Safety is of paramount importance and we seek your support to achieve this.

To assist you, we will escort your coach to the Football Club away end car park adjacent to the ground.

Refreshments are available at the ground along with limited capacity at the nearby Metrodome Sports Club. I would be grateful if you would consider using these facilities rather than going into the town centre. It helps with the free flow and safety of the fixture.

Please make your way to the away turnstiles that are situated to the left-hand side of the ground as you approach. Turnstiles will be open from 1.30pm.

Please act responsibly and enjoy the fixture.

At the conclusion of the match, please make your way directly to your coach. All coaches will leave together when full and will be escorted by the police back to the M1 Motorway.

South Yorkshire police will be working in partnership with Barnsley Football Club and other agencies. There is a significant police and club steward operation to deal with those attending the fixture in a drunken state. Please drink sensibly. Drunkenness, Pitch incursions or Racist behaviour will not be tolerated.

Positive action will be taken against any offenders.

Thank you for your co-operation. I hope you enjoy an entertaining festive match.
