Equality, diversity and inclusion work showcased at Stoke City game
- Town’s annual ‘Terriers Together’ game on Saturday
- Club’s important work in equality, diversity and inclusion to be showcased
- Lots planned for this weekend’s live Sky Sports game
Huddersfield Town will use Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game against Stoke City at the John Smith’s Stadium to promote the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion in the annual ‘Terriers Together’ fixture!
Now an important part of Town’s annual fixture calendar, the game will be utilised to showcase the work that has been developed over the last few years under the ‘Terriers Together’ banner; an initiative designed to encompass everything the Club does to ensure it is welcoming and inclusive of everyone.
Lots of information about Town’s work will be included in ‘The Terrier’, our match day programme, whilst the players will once again warm up in special t-shirts promoting the ‘Terriers Together’ message ahead of the 3pm kick-off.
Town’s Under-17 side is also in action on Saturday, hosting Bradford City at Canalside, and they’ll get involved in the day too with their own ‘Terriers Together’ message ahead of kick-off.
This season’s dedicated fixture comes on the back of the recent news that the Club has achieved the Premier League Equality Standard at Intermediate level for its work in this area!

Zoe Shackleton, Town’s HR Manager, leads on Town’s work in the field of EDI and commented:
“It’s very sad that we have to hold this season’s ‘Terriers Together’ game during a period where we cannot be together, but it’s still important to advocate for equality, inclusion and respect for others, which this match gives us the opportunity to reinforce.
“When supporters are allowed back into stadia across the country, it is vitally important that everyone feels welcome at our Club, regardless of their background or any protected characteristic. Everything we do under the ‘Terriers Together’ banner plans to aid and promote inclusion and respect, through education and training of our staff to the ways that we market our games.
“We’re very proud to have achieved the Intermediate level of the Premier League Equality Standard, to have achieved Mindful Employer Status and to be a Disability Confident employer. We’re working hard to continue to develop and we look forward to sharing further updates with our supporters in the near future”
