Oakwell, the home of Championship side Barnsley will host Manchester City’s UEFA Cup home tie scheduled for either July 17th or 31st.

Due to the City of Manchester Stadium being used for summer events the pitch will have to be relayed, (which is expected to be done at the beginning of next week), meaning the turf will need to settle in before it can be used.
