Huddersfield: Challenging for promotion
Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle is expecting “a little bit of a stampede” after the club announced season tickets would cost less than £200 for the 2017/18 campaign regardless of whether they win promotion.The Terriers, on course for a return to the top flight for the first time since 1972, have announced 17,000 adult season cards will go on sale on April 6 for £199 in all home areas of the John Smith’s Stadium.

Season cards for fans aged eight to 17 will cost £79 and £29 for those under eight, with the prices fixed until the club’s divisional status for next season is confirmed.

“The prices will stay the same no matter what division Town are in next season if they’re bought before the deadline,” Hoyle told the Huddersfield Examiner.

“Don’t hang around because we expect the 17,000 to go very quickly.

“Last season I think we sold 11,000 within three days, so there might be a little bit of a stampede.”

Town sold 15,000 season tickets for the current campaign after cutting prices last summer and expect to comfortably hit their target.

“Last year was a real success,” Hoyle added. “We sold 15,000 and we finished 19th. This season we’ve had a more successful season, so I would expect us to sell more.”

Head coach David Wagner has steered the Terriers to third place in the Sky Bet Championship, six points behind the second automatic promotion place, currently held by Brighton, with a game in hand and nine left to play.
