Barnsley Football Club is a professional association football club in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, which plays in the Championship, the second tier of English football. Nicknamed ’the Tykes’, they were founded in 1887 by Reverend Tiverton Preedy. The club's colours were originally blue, but were changed to red and white in 1904. Their home ground since 1888 has been Oakwell.

Barnsley won the FA Cup in 1912 and were runners-up in 1910. The club won the 2016 Football League Trophy, beating Oxford United 3–2 in the final, and the 2016 Football League play-offs, beating Millwall 3–1 in the final.

In 2017, a majority stake in the club was sold to a consortium led by Chien Lee of NewCity Capital, Paul Conway of Pacific Media Group and joined by Indian businessman Neerav Parekh and baseball player and executive Billy Beane.

Barnsley's rivals include fellow Yorkshire clubs Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Leeds United as their biggest rivals, with Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United also considered as rivals
