Huddersfield Town are excited to announce a new collaboration with the Huddersfield Junior Football League.
The league, which has over 90 clubs taking part in matches across Kirklees and beyond, will work with the Terriers to increase junior participation in the leagues, as well as raising awareness of the league at a selection of home Town match days.
Junior Clubs will also be invited to work closer with the Terriers with a newly created ‘Junior Clubs’ package, which the Club will look to launch in the new year.
Group Ticket Sales Executive Lisa Bottomley commented:
“We work closely with many of our local Junior Clubs already - I’m sure our fans will have seen them taking part in the Guard of Honour before the home matches and visiting the stadium on match days.
“This new agreement with the league allows us to open our Club up to even more juniors in our local area and also allows the next generation to come down to the John Smith’s Stadium to watch some live football.
“We are keen to work closer with each club, and have already started to put some ideas together which we will announce in more detail in the new year.”
Huddersfield Junior Football League’s James Carter added:
“The Huddersfield Junior Football League is one of the largest in England, with thousands of youngsters playing the sport each weekend in our local area. We have always had a good working relationship with Town as our local professional club, but this new collaboration focuses this, and also helps us to get lots of awareness of the league to Town supporters.
“The Club helped recently by offering CPD sessions with some of the coaching staff for our managers, and it’s things like this which make such a difference and that we are looking to work closer with the Club on going forwards.
“The Club also dedicated a game to the HJFL earlier this season, offering awareness through LED advertising and the match day programme.
“I know a lot of our junior players are already fans of the Terriers, but this tie-up can help to introduce even more fans to the Club. We’re really looking forward to working closer with Lisa, Boothy, Robyn, Rachel and the rest of the team behind the scenes at Town.”
