About Huddersfield Town
Formed in 1908, Huddersfield Town has one of the proudest histories of any club in English football.
Recognised as one of the most successful English clubs of all time, we were the first to win the English League title three times in a row in 1924, 1925 and 1926. This is a feat that has only been repeated by three other teams; Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.
The Club embarked upon a ‘New Era’ when Dean Hoyle became Chairman in 2009. We are the Yorkshire Club and have formed innovative partnerships with Kirklees College, Thornton + Ross and Umbro to name a few. Our unique collaboration with charity the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has raised over £420,000 since its inception in 2009.
During the ‘New Era’, Huddersfield Town has been nominated for an impressive nine accolades at the Football League Awards, scooping the titles of ‘Family Club of the Year’ and ‘Best Matchday Programme’ as well as being highly commended in the Marketing and Community categories.
The current Football League Independent Supporters Survey ranks Huddersfield Town first out of all 72 Clubs at communication with supporters, attracting new fans and creating a matchday experience.
A ten point pledge has been outlined by the Board of Directors which underpins the Club’s values. Those pledges are:
honesty, integrity, trust, commitment, quality, pride, respect, character, value and success.
Simply, our history serves as an inspiration for our future as we build a Club that our supporters can be proud of.
