Committed to making the Club as inclusive as possible, Town have been working on improving our match day experience for female supporters.

Ahead of our annual Terriers Together fixture on Sunday, and in recognition of International Women's Day, the Club are pleased to highlight recent improvements made to enhance our match day experience for female supporters.

Recently, Town have signed up to the Breastfeeding Friendly Scheme, run by the Breastfeeding Network, which exists to support families to ensure they feel confident when breastfeeding.

Although a woman can breastfeed her child in any public place, the Club recognises that some women may feel more comfortable to do so in a designated place. Located between the Core and Terriers Together Stand, the Legends Café Bar can now be utilised for breastfeeding on a home match day from noon until 5.30pm - when kick-off takes place at 3pm - and from 5pm to 10pm for evening fixtures.

Supporters can request a seasonal pass which allows access from the stand into Legends Café Bar, should it be required, by contacting, or alternatively they can contact the nearest steward on a match day.

As well as being a designated space for mothers, the Legends Café Bar also has baby changing facilities available, free baby changing products, and staff on hand to help with heating bottles for formula, if required.

Alongside this initiative, Town has also provided free period products in all female and accessible toilets around the stadium since 2017, with posters that include QR codes for fans who wish to provide feedback - anonymously, if preferred - on their own match day experiences.

In 2018, we also began supporting the Women at the Game ticketing initiative which aims to give women their first taste of live football in a supportive environment. And in 2021, the Club partnered with Her Game Too to raise awareness of sexist abuse in football and to help create a more inclusive atmosphere for female fans.

More recently, Town have joined forces with West Yorkshire Police and the WalkSafe app to help ensure those who make journeys on foot in Huddersfield, during the day or night, can pick safer routes home, and also share these with friends and family to ensure their safety.

During his time in West Yorkshire, our Chairman Kevin Nagle also met with members of our Women's+ Network to directly discuss their experiences at the John Smith's and how we, as a Club, can continue to improve this.

Female inclusion is an integral part of our Terriers Together work, and we want all supporters to feel welcome when they visit the John Smith's Stadium.
