With Huddersfield Town’s Danish following on the rise due to the success of Jonas Lössl, Mathias Zanka and Philip Billing in the team, a group of Town’s Danish support flew over at the weekend to enjoy several Club activities.
After making friends with a Town fan who moved to their country 16 years ago, the Danish group - consisting of several fathers and their sons - were converted into Terriers fans several years ago and have stayed loyal in their following of the Club.
The group flew over from Denmark on Friday to play in the weekend’s PPG Cup which took place at the Club’s PPG Canalside Training Ground and saw kids of all age groups compete.
The children competed in the Under-11s tournament and were the first team outside of the UK to play in the competition; the boys successfully making it all the way to the Semi-Finals.
On Monday afternoon the supporters also attended a tour of the John Smith’s Stadium with Town legend and Club Ambassador Andy Booth. Whilst on the tour they had the opportunity to meet Huddersfield Town Chairman Dean Hoyle and have a group photo taken with both him and Boothy.
The families were particularly impressed with the views from the top of the stadium and the club shop, with the kids all being kitted out in the official shirts and purchasing club caps and flags.
The group watch almost every Town game on either Danish TV or on an online stream, flying over to watch the Terriers whenever they can. They attended several of Town’s home games last season, including that famous 2-1 home win against Manchester United, and are looking forward to flying back to the UK from Denmark next season to again take in the booming Town atmosphere.
With Dane’s Lössl and Zanka also making their country’s World Cup squad this summer, the fans are particularly excited this year for the tournament to get underway and are hopeful that their Town heroes will get some minutes in Russia.
