Huddersfield Town’s match against Brentford on Saturday 18 January will promote the Terriers Together message.
The Terriers Together brand highlights the work both the Club and Town Foundation do in relation to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Supporters attending Saturday’s game will be able to see First Team players warming up in Terriers Together and Kick It Out t-shirts, and all 11 children involved in the player walk out at the start of the game will be wearing Terriers Together t-shirts.
Guests from Kirkwood Hospice who may not otherwise be able to attend a Huddersfield Town match have been invited to watch the game from a box within the Fantastic Media Stand.
Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Services Manager Robyn Kennerdale commented:
“We’re really proud to showcase some of the work which has been happening behind the scenes at the Club and Foundation to make our organisation as inclusive as possible.
“We are an intrinsic part of our community, and by highlighting some of our inclusion initiatives, supporters’ groups and Foundation programmes through our ‘Terriers Together’ message, we hope to show that everyone can be a part of Huddersfield Town Football Club.
“We are also happy to be showcasing the work Kick It Out do to challenge discrimination and exclusion.”
Huddersfield Town’s Equality Working Group have spent the previous year working towards achieving the Premier League Equality Standard at preliminary level. They have achieved that and are now working towards the Intermediate Level. You can read more on this in Saturday’s edition of the Terrier, which also includes an exclusive interview with Town defender Tommy Elphick, the First Team’s ‘Terriers Together’ Ambassador. He spoke to the Terrier about what he’s learnt from his personal experiences.
