Huddersfield Town has launched a new scheme for children who are celebrating their sixth and seventh birthday during the current 2016/17 season – the Terriers Pack!
The scheme is an extension of the successful ‘Terrier 7s’ scheme that was launched back in the 2004/05 campaign, with the aim to encourage children to support their local club.
For just £20, each child that registers will receive a Huddersfield Town replica home shirt presented on a match day by Terry the Terrier and a Town player.
You will also receive two adult and two junior tickets to a Huddersfield Town home league match!
The scheme is available for children who are celebrating their sixth and seventh birthday between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017.
Leaflets have already been sent to schools in the area, but if your child is eligible and your school is not involved please contact Hilary Horsfall on 01484 484112 or via firstname.lastname@example.org and a leaflet to be forwarded on.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis explained:
“Supporting local schools and encouraging fans of the future to attend their first Huddersfield Town game is a very important part of the Club’s sustainability moving forward.
“The previous Terrier 7s scheme was immensely successful in giving seven year-old children a day to remember at their first football game at Huddersfield Town, so it seems only natural that we’ve extended that offer out to six year-olds too. Our research indicates that you select your football team at those ages, so hopefully we can sway some local youngsters our way!
“’Terriers Pack’ is the latest in a range of initiatives we have for young supporters in the area, which includes the new-look Young Terriers scheme and the extended Schools Focus scheme this season.”
Nadio Granata from Stafflex added:
“Stafflex is one of Huddersfield Town’s biggest supporters and is extremely proud to be able to sponsor the relaunch of the Terriers Pack.
“We wish every Terrier a blue and white Happy Birthday at six or seven and many exciting years watching their favourite football team.
“Come on you blues!”

Huddersfield Town recently launched its first official junior membership scheme, the Young Terriers!
Relaunched in tandem with the existing Young Terriers group, the new-look scheme is available to all Town fans aged under 18 years old and boasts benefits exclusive to members!
Upon joining, Young Terriers will receive a special membership card and an exclusive Young Terriers scarf, which can be picked up from the Stadium Superstore whenever convenient.
Members will also receive a special signed photo from one of the more popular members of Town’s squad, Michael Hefele!
The Young Terriers will also get the chance to vote for their Player of the Season, with a new Young Terriers award being added to the Club’s prestigious Annual Awards ceremony in May.
Ahead of every Saturday home match day at the John Smith’s Stadium, there will also be hour-long football sessions held at the Zone on St. Andrew’s Road for Young Terriers members from 12.30pm. You’ll receive full details of this in your membership pack when you join. Please be aware that these pre-match activities do come at an extra cost.
Other special events exclusively for Young Terriers members throughout the course of the season. Keep checking the new Junior Fans section on htafc.com for more information!
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis explained:
“Everyone at the Club is very excited to launch this new junior membership scheme, which I’m sure will be very popular with our youngster fans!
“The Young Terriers is already an established brand at Huddersfield Town as an independent supporters’ club formed way back in 1983. I know a lot of supporters will have been ‘Young Terriers’ back in the day, including the head of our current main club sponsor PURE Legal, Phil Hodgkinson.
“Recently the staff involved with Young Terriers approached us asking for help and so it seems like the ideal opportunity for the Club to relaunch and rebrand the Young Terriers.
“Now we’re looking forward to working together to make the Young Terriers appeal to our younger fans, who are vital to the long-term sustainability of the Club.”
Huddersfield Town’s 'Schools Focus' initiative,held in association with Syngenta, offers young supporters across the region cheap tickets to come and experience a live game first-hand with their families!
This season, the Schools Focus initiative has been relaunched and offers parents and children from local schools the chance to come to ANY Town game at special, low prices, throughout the 2016/17 campaign.
At the beginning of the season, Town delivered special Schools Focus brochures to all schools in the local area.
With this brochure, parents and children can come to any – or all – of Town’s home games in 2016 for just £10 adults and either £5 or £3 Under-18s. Simply turn to pages 5 through 10 for special vouchers for each game, which you can cut out and bring to the Ticket Office. Bring the whole family!
The booklets also feature a unique URL that can be used to redeem the voucher online (you need to register or sign in first).
As well as the 90 minutes of action-packed football on the pitch, there’s lots more to enjoy on a match day at Huddersfield Town.
In the special Fantastic Media Family Stand, you’ll find fun things to do and visit like face painters, balloon modellers, Terry the Terrier and his new friend Tilly - and some of the Town players will pop over to say hello too!
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:
“We want to give local youngsters and their families a chance to come and sample the atmosphere at a Town home game.
“Previously the Club has run around four Schools Focus games every season. They’re always very popular, so now we’ve extended the offer to every one of the remaining home games!
“The booklet that our team is delivering to schools this week features discount vouchers for every game that’s left in 2016; a second booklet will be delivered for the fixtures next year.
“We’ve also got an exciting new Schools Focus ambassador on board to help us improve the scheme; details about that person will follow soon.
“Please ask your school about the booklet and redeem the vouchers at our Ticket Office ahead of match day."
