Bumper Crowd Expected For Derby Opener

Bumper Crowd Expected For Derby Opener

Hillsborough can expect a bumper crowd for this Saturday's Championship opener between the Owls and Barnsley.

Fans of both Wednesday and Barnsley are expected to be snapping up tickets like hot cakes this week as derby fever adds to the interest of the season opener.

Our Oakwell neighbours have already sold over 3,000 tickets for the clash, and are expected to break the 5,000 barrier before the big kick-off.

And tickets are also selling well for the home areas, with a crowd close to, if not in excess of, 30,000 through the Hillsborough turnstiles.
