Barnsley Brace Themselves For City Invasion

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.

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"!
