Barnsley fans planning to travel to Chesterfield for this weekend’s league one season opener are being reminded that the fixture is a sell-out for away fans.

Barnsley FC have sold out their 1,976 seat allocation for the game, which kicks-off at the Proact Stadium at 3pm on Saturday.

No further tickets for away supporters will be available and Barnsley fans are urged not to travel to the fixture if they do not already have a ticket. 
There will be an increased police presence in Chesterfield on the day and British Transport Police are also providing resources to this fixture as well as intelligence officers from South Yorkshire Police.

Superintendent Graham McLaughlin, who is leading the policing operation, said: “We want people to enjoy this event and indeed the whole matchday experience. Derbyshire police are well-versed in policing high-level football events. I would remind fans that any disorder will not be tolerated. 

“Anyone who causes trouble or is excessively intoxicated will be removed from the ground or barred entry in the first place. If necessary we will arrest offenders and we will seek Football Banning Orders where appropriate. 

“This will be the first fixture where the new Body Worn Video cameras will be used by Derbyshire officers. “
