Barnsley were founded in 1887 as Barnsley St. Peter’s. They played in the Sheffield and District League from 1890 and then in the Midland League from 1895. They entered the Football League in 1898 and reached the FA Cup final in 1910. They won the FA Cup two years later.

Barnsley spent the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s in the Second and Third Divisions and in the 1960s and the 1970s they played mostly in the Third and the Fourth Divisions.

In the 1980s and the 1990s, Barnsley re-established themselves as a Division Two side and in the 1996-1997 season played in the English Premier League for the first time in their history. However, they promptly got relegated the very next season.

Since then Barnsley have been struggling with financial matters and relegation issues and have been playing in the Championship and Division One.

Barnsley play their home matches at Oakwell which has a capacity of 23,009. The club bears the nicknames The Tykes and the Reds.
