BARNSLEY Football Club is looking into installing electric vehicle charging points at Oakwell due to growing demand from fans.
The stadium, which does not currently have any charging facilities for visitors whose cars are either battery-powered or plug-in hybrid models, is the subject of an internal review which could pave the way for points to be placed in the site’s car park.
A spokesman told the Chronicle: “The club recognises that electric cars are becoming more popular, so it is looking into the possibility of having charging points at Oakwell.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
