UK's first dedicated women's football stadium to be built in Barnsley

Barnsley planning UK’s first dedicated women’s football stadium

Wednesday 17th July 2019

The club, which currently plays in the ladies 4th division are eyeing up a 2,500 capacity stadium located to the east of the town centre.

The development would cost in the region of £5m and would be funded through grants and private investment.

Barnsley are aiming to become a top 20 team in the near future - they’re 2 promotions away from that aim at the moment. It is hoped that the new stadium will help them achieve that goal.

If the club’s planning application is granted, the stadium should be completed by the end of next year.
