Enjoy a family friendly environment at Hillsborough!
Sheffield Wednesday are dedicated to providing a family friendly environment both in and around Hillsborough. The club were delighted to be awarded the EFL Family Excellence Award for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

As part of SWFC's ongoing commitment to families, the club have designated part of the Grandstand as the official Family Area of Hillsborough.
This area is ideal on a matchday for parents and children alike. The Grandstand hosts spacious concourses and toilet facilities and the seats within this section offer a fantastic high view of the game.
The Family Zone which was previously situated in the middle of the stand has moved and is now housed in the concourse area between gangways F and G of the Grandstand and provides a dedicated and significantly bigger family area of the stand.
The entertainment within the Family Zone begins when the turnstile open at 1.30pm with something for everyone in the family including colouring stations, face painting, table football and not forgetting Play Your Wednesday Top Trumps Right! Please note activities vary from game to game.
At each game the following will take place in the Family Zone:
1.50pm – 2.15pm – Visit from club mascots Ozzie and Barney Owl
2.00pm – 2.30pm – Magic Mark the Magician will dazzle fans of all ages with his fantastic tricks
2.15pm – 2.45pm – A visit from a Sheffield Wednesday player
Both our mascots have their very own dedicated Twitter accounts – be sure to tag them in any photos you have with them and you may even get a retweet – follow them here:
Within this family area, as is the ethos throughout Hillsborough, the club has a zero tolerance policy on foul and abusive language and racial or homophobic chanting.
In addition, the Grandstand has family friendly stewards who are on hand for any issues you have during your day with Wednesday and we also have a dedicated phone number for supporters to contact during the game should you wish to anonymously report any form of anti social behaviour. This number is: 07963 138580.
