Season Card holders can move into FM Lower (North Stand) free of charge vs Bournemouth
Town fans will be able to use their Season Card to gain entry to the Fantastic Media Stand Lower Tier when the new ‘North Stand Loyal’ group makes its debut against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday 9 August 2014.
At the end of the 2013/14 season, a survey was sent out via Town’s new fan engagement panel ‘All Together Town’ (click HERE
for more info). The results identified the match day atmosphere in the John Smith’s Stadium as requiring improvement, and after consultation with Season Card holders, the Club supported the demand for a singing section behind the goal.
The ‘North Stand Loyal’ is a supporter-created and driven group of like-minded fans who wish to congregate and improve the match day atmosphere by creating a Wall of Colour.
NSL has created a crowd-funding initiative that allowed for the creation of several fantastic banners (click HERE
) that will be on display this season, and in support of the NSL’s goals the Club is now waiving the normal admin fee to transfer stands for this game.
Just over 350 Season Cards have now been sold in this stand – and now Season Card holders from other home areas will be able to use their access card without paying the usual transfer fee to join the ‘North Stand Loyal’ in the Fantastic Media Stand Lower Tier when AFC Bournemouth visit on 9 August 2014.
Season Card holders from other stands should simply take their Season Card to the Fantastic Media Stand lower tier and have it scanned as normal to gain entry and swap stands.
There will also be cash turnstiles available on match day for this stand (click HERE for prices).
Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens explained:
“As was identified by the ‘All Together Town’ survey, improving the match day atmosphere is a high priority for Huddersfield Town fans and the Club.
“The North Stand Loyal group has gained a lot of momentum in the closed season and this will give other Season Card holders from other stands the opportunity to move into the Fantastic Media Stand Lower Tier and sample the atmosphere.
“We hope to extend this ‘free’ transfer system for another four games at least, but first we will need to review how things work and consult with the Stadium authorities (KSDL) after the AFC Bournemouth game.
“We hope that the hard work of the fans and the Club comes to fruition on 9 August and we see lots of supporters behind the goal cheering on the team.”
