Huddersfield Offer Incredible Gesture For Their Fans After Promotion

Huddersfield Offer Incredible Gesture For Their Fans After Promotion

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle admits that he feels "emotional" following the club's Championship playoff final win over Reading.

Christopher Schindler struck the winning spot-kick, after Danny Ward had saved from Reading's Jordan Obita.

"Promotion is worth at least 170 million pounds [$220 million] because of future prize money and broadcast earnings from being in the Premier League, the wealthiest league in the world". They are Huddersfield legends.

He told Sky Sports after seeing David Wagner's side defy the odds to end a 45-year spell outside of the top tier: "It's hard to speak right now".

Man City, meanwhile, offer season tickets as cheap as £299 - just £100 more expensive than the Premier League newcomers.

The German, who had a budget of less than £12m to work with this season, said: "By the way, Ian Holloway, all the best for next season".

"I know a lot of the pundits wrote us off". But I need few days for it to sink in.

Half of "Town" fans surveyed by the Huddersfield Daily Examiner earlier this year said they'd be willing to part with anything in the region of £250 to £400 for a season ticket next campaign.




"I'm so pleased with my players, my group and the whole town, and for the chairman (Dean Hoyle) who backed almost all my ideas".

"I'm not freaking out over the game or anything - it's a game of football", he said.

Their current manager is a close friend of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after working under his fellow German as Borussia Dortmund's reserve team coach and now Wagner will get to face his former employer on equal terms.

"It's been incredible, before I got here we finished 19th, so for us to be at Wembley now - it's been a massive season for Huddersfield".

"What we achieved this season is great, but in a final it doesn't matter how you play, the result is the most important thing", said the Dutchman.

"You always talk about "we", as "we" work together as a club and the people within the club - it's not only myself, but the technical staff and the team and everybody around it is doing everything in their power to make this club top a success and eventually get success as well".

He also went on to state: "I've just been in the dressing-room, and they're all singing about Ian Holloway".
