Barnsley Brace Themselves For City Invasion

Oakwell, the home of Championship side Barnsley will host Manchester City's UEFA Cup home tie scheduled for either July 17th or 31st.

Due to the City of Manchester Stadium being used for summer events the pitch will have to be relayed, (which is expected to be done at the beginning of next week), meaning the turf will need to settle in before it can be used.

Barnsley, who are ya?

Oakwell

The stadium's capacity is 23,000.

West Stand - The West Stand has a total seating capacity of 4,752.

East Stand - The East Stand is a two-tier development and has a capacity of 7,492.

South Stand aka The Enterprise Stand has a capacity of 4,508.

North Stand - This stand is generally reserved for away supporters and has a capacity for 6,000 spectators.

The draw for first qualifying round takes place on Tuesday July 1st.

Why aren't you playing it at a stadium that holds more than 23000?

Lack of descent grounds in the vacinity of Manchester!

I cannot understand how you chose Barnsley, Whats the distance about 50miles?

Only at City could a Bon Jovi concert disrupt European football plans! Let's just hope we dont go down in a "blaze of glory". We just need to "keep the faith", and hopefully the match wont be like "bad medicine", and that progression to round two will be like a "bed of roses"!
