Huddersfield Town has teamed up with the University of Huddersfield to celebrate the Chinese New Year with OPE Sports.
Following the Fireworks event at PPG Canalside on Saturday 10 February, the Terriers’ ‘Year of the Dog’ celebrations will continue at the Club’s Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth on Sunday 11 February (noon kick-off).
The Club have teamed up with the University of Huddersfield to celebrate the Chinese New Year with OPE Sports, by putting on some special oriental activities in the Fantastic Media Family Stand.
The stand will be decorated with facts about the Chinese New Year and there will be a calligraphy and ‘chopstick challenge’ for young Town fans to take part in, run by students from the Chinese Society at the University of Huddersfield.
Club Ambassador Andy Booth will also be in the Family Stand to meet young Terriers whilst also taking part in some of the challenges!
Town mascots Terry and Tilly the Terriers will be joined on the match day by two Pandas to meet youngsters, and University of Huddersfield students will be at the side of the pitch waving Chinese and United Kingdom flags.
In addition to this, there will be a special ‘Year of the Dog’ themed gift given out at the turnstiles to all under 18s, courtesy of OPE Sports.
