The Barnsley Football Club (UK) has announced the launch of its brand new 1887 Business Club!

The ‘Barnsley FC’ stated that as part of the scheme, local businesses will have a unique opportunity to network and gain access to exclusive Barnsley Football Club experiences.

The Barnsley Football Club is a professional association football club based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England (UK), which plays in the Championship, the second tier of English football, and will compete in the EFL League One in the 2022-2023 seasons following their relegation.

The 18,515-capacity Oakwell Stadium is a multipurpose sports development in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England (UK) used primarily by the Barnsley Football Club for playing their home fixtures and those of their reserves.

The Barnsley Football Club puts the local community at the forefront of their thinking, and will continue to promote businesses and firms from within the region to help Barnsley flourish.

The ‘Barnsley FC’ further stated that in its 135th year as a club, this distinctive package will give them official Club Partner status, coverage across their print and digital platforms, which will be seen by thousands of ‘the Reds’ supporters, as well as discounts on all merchandise at ‘the Reds’ Superstore.

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

Said Paul Ibbetson, Managing Director of DX, “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. As a proud partner it has provided me with a wonderful insight into the workings of the club and the opportunity to meet the staffs that makes 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.”

The DX West stand of the Oakwell Stadium is closed since last year as the stand requires remedial works.

Added Ibbetson, “Under CEO Khaled El-Ahmad 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.”

The Barnsley Football Club recognizes 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 F.C. will automatically be enrolled into the 1887 Business Club and receive accredited benefits, branding and event invitations. A £250 donation to ‘the Reds’ in the Community can be achieved via a successful 1887 Business Club referral!

To celebrate the launch of the 1887 Business Club, the club will be hosting an inaugural breakfast in the Copier Systems Legends Suite on June 23rd – fixture release day.
