Get in the mood for Huddersfield Town’s first ever home Premier League match at PPG Canalside’s Fanzone, sponsored by Perrys Vauxhall, on Sunday 20 August!
Like last season there’s a number activities for all the family at the Club’s PPG Canalside fanzone, kicking off at 10am ahead of Town’s match against Newcastle United.
The ever-popular Boothy’s Beer and Banter returns for the new season at 11am as Club Ambassador Andy Booth is joined on stage by former Newcastle United centre back Steve Howey. The 45 year-old made 191 appearances for the Magpies between 1989 and 2000 before joining Manchester City.
If you have any questions for the centre back, who was capped four time by England, then come down to PPG Canalside and take part!
The Club's outside bar, provided by Heineken, will be open at 10am and will serve Fosters, John Smith’s Beer and Strongbow as well as a number of other drinks. The beer tent will be under a marquee, provided by H V Marquees, and will be available for people aged over-18.
PPG Canalside will also be serving the Club’s Official Beer Hat-trick, which was brewed by Club Partner Magic Rock; available for just £3.20. Not only that but a special Magic Rock beer will be available to Huddersfield Town fans on Sunday!
At 11.30am local band LewRay will be performing the bands’ new single #HereToStay live in the new trailer staging, provided by Expect Distributions.
There are also activities for our younger supporters at the Fanzone! For the young budding footballer, you will now be able to have a kick around with other young Terriers on our new artificial grass area which was brought in by West Yorkshire Artificial Lawns.
Fans of all ages will be able to show off their skills once again and take control of the likes of Lionel Messi and Elias Kachunga on FIFA 17. A GAME den (below) is available during the fanzone, the gaming consoles and monitors are kindly provided by GAME and IIYAMA.
That’s not all! You can have fun on our climbing wall sponsored by Odin Events, race your friends with electric cars on the decking at PPG Canalside and get special balloons made for you!
Why not get some food ahead at PPG Canalside before heading to the John Smith’s Stadium? As usual there’s a BBQ available for supporters, a match day menu featuring a build your own burger station and special Huddersfield Town donuts, so you can enjoy warm blue and white donuts on your way to the ground.
There’s also the chance for fans to win a tremendous cash prize courtesy of Club Partner and Fanzone sponsor Perrys Vauxhall. To win the money all you have to do is predict the correct score for the game against Newcastle United and have your ticket drawn out at random. The prize pot is £100, which will rollover if the correct isn’t predicted!
Why not miss queues at the John Smith’s Stadium and pop into Huddersfield Town’s retail shop at PPG Canalside? Lots of gifts will be on offer to get you ready for Sunday’s match.
Like last season, fans will also be able to take a short ride from the Fanzone to the John Smith’s Stadium on the shuttle bus provided by Yorkshire Tiger.
The bus will be making runs from PPG Canalside to the Stadium prior to Town’s match against Newcastle United, leaving at both 12.30pm and 1pm. You will be able to go on the bus for as little as £1.
Parking is available at a first come first served basis for Club PPG Canalside members, guests can attend with a member for free.
