Nicholas continued: 'Huddersfield Town is an exciting club to be involved with, playing in a fantastic stadium to hugely passionate fans. We are committed to building our relationship with the club, the fans and the town as a whole.'
CasinoRed.com Chief Operating Officer, Jonathan Truelove, said: 'We have chosen the biggest brand in Huddersfield because we are committed to realising the ambitions of what is already a vibrant and thriving town with a football club at the heart of its identity.'
Huddersfield Town Director of Business Development Sean Jarvis said: 'We are thrilled that we have secured an excellent deal with a dynamic national company operating in a growing industry.
'CasinoRed.com is very keen to develop their brand on a national scale and we are delighted they have chosen the town of Huddersfield and particularly Huddersfield Town as the place and vehicle to do that.'
Vital view - Not quite what we imagined as a new sponsorship partner, in fact couldn't be more different from the Yorkshire Building Society (save your money, or put it into property), we now have, gamble it away, hardly traditional family values, but as we are always saying on this site.
Money sure does talk very loudly, the volume is deafening. Where are those ear plugs.
