Appeal from the Club ahead of Spurs match

- Town fans asked to arrive earlier for home matches
- Increased gates and security checks at games
- Supporters thanked in advance for their support

Huddersfield Town fans are asked to arrive early for home games as the Club’s inaugural Premier League season continues, starting with the sold-out clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 30 September 2017.

The increased gates, combined with increased security checks and some logistical issues with the scanning of barcodes on Season Cards, have led to queues outside the John Smith’s Stadium turnstiles as kick-off nears.

Now the Club is urging fans to make it to the ground as soon as is viable to ease congestion ahead of what could be a record gate on 30 September.

“Everyone at the Club is absolutely delighted to be backed by sell-out crowds as we continue in our debut Premier League season; the support from the stands has been phenomenal so far,” Town’s Head of Marketing & Communications David Threlfall-Sykes commented.

“As we’ve lived the first three home games, it’s become clear that the increased numbers have brought about tangibly bigger queues as kick-off approaches and everyone descends upon the Stadium.

“We’re doing all we can at our end to ease congestion, but we’d also ask fans to come to the Stadium as soon as is possible for them and not to leave it until the last few minutes to try and gain entry.

“We’ve found that the atmosphere is building earlier and earlier as every week passes, so please come down a bit earlier and enjoy the match day experience as we anticipate kick-off. This should ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action too!

“Thanks from everyone at the Club in anticipation of your help on this front.”
