Alternative venue secured for Sheff Wed fixture
Huddersfield Town is to play at an alternate venue for its fixture in the new Under-21 Premier League Cup.
The Club has been drawn at home to Sheffield Wednesday in the second qualifying round on 9 September and the fixture will now be played at Bury’s Gigg Lane on Wednesday 30 October, with kick-off at 1pm. Entry will be priced at £3 for adults and £1 concessions.
Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens commented:
“We have been unable to secure use of the John Smith’s Stadium pitch and so the Club is very grateful to everyone at Bury FC for allowing us use of Gigg Lane to fulfil this fixture.
“The competition was unveiled at short notice, but it is an excellent new initiative and one the players and Club are looking forward to being a part of. Similarly the support of the Premier League and Sheffield Wednesday in allowing an alternative venue has been crucial.”
