Success of recent games pays off.
Huddersfield Town supporters will once again be able to sit in The Pink Link Stand at the Club's upcoming home League One fixture against Leyton Orient on Saturday 26 February 2011.
Town worked together with the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association to allow home fans to sit in the south end of the ground against Colchester United in January and over 1,100 fans generated a superb atmosphere to help urge on Lee Clark`s side. The stand was open again last night. On the back of the success so far, the Club is making the stand available to home supporters for the upcoming npower League One fixture against the O`s.
Supporters that wish to transfer their seat into the Pink Link Stand for this fixture can again do so at the turnstiles for an administration fee of £1 if they show their season ticket booklet, whereas non season ticket holders can pay for entry at £21 for adults, £11 for seniors and students and £8 for under-16s
Huddersfield Town's spokesman commented:
"The recent games have showcased the potential that having home supporters in 'an away end` behind that goal has. The numbers in the stand against Colchester were good and were beyond expectation last night also, especially given the circumstances. At both games the improvement in the atmosphere was notable.
"We were proactive in opening the stand for the Carlisle game as following the early discussions, it wasn`t initially planned to be open. Although we clearly didn`t communicate that option anywhere near well enough, the home fans once again made a great difference to the noise level.
"Unfortunately the expected number of visiting fans that Carlisle and Oldham will bring in our next two home fixtures rules out the possibility of opening the stand to home supporters, we are all looking forward to seeing some supporters back in the Pink Link Stand come 26 February.
"As a Club we want this scheme to work when it can. The advice to Town fans is the same; get in the South Stand, adhere to the ground regulations and get behind the team! We will continue to work with the supporters to make this option available as often as we can."
"The South Stand being open to home supporters against Orient is absolutely fantastic news and shows what can be achieved by working together. We are sure more fans would have been in there last night with more notice and the club agrees. That said, we are delighted and hopefully we can get the 1,500 maximum in there versus Orient."
