Book your place on the Breakfast Briefing as Sir Gary Verity, Sean Jarvis & Jacqui Gedman take to the stage to discuss the impact the Clubs promotion has had on the local and surrounding Yorkshire area.
Today marks the 100th day since Huddersfield Town secured promotion to the Premier League on that memorable afternoon in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.
From the exact moment that Christopher Schindler converted that £170 million winning spot kick in the shoot-out, things at the Club monumentally changed. The most obvious change was that the Club would now be playing in the richest league in the world. But with all the riches and the increased worldwide media exposure – what impact has the promotion had on the local surrounding area?
Sponsored by Ridley & Hall Solicitors and in partnership with both Kirklees Council and Welcome to Yorkshire; Huddersfield Town is delighted to be hosting a breakfast meeting with a very special panel, brought together to discuss the impact the promotion has had on the Club, the town and the wider Yorkshire area.
Welcome to Yorkshire CEO and Tour de Yorkshire pioneer, Sir Gary Verity will take to the stage along with Huddersfield Town Commercial Director, Sean Jarvis and Kirklees Council CEO, Jacqui Gedman for a very special Q&A session to discuss the impact the promotion has had on their respective constituencies.
The breakfast meeting will take place on Thursday 28 September 2017 in the Revell Ward Suite of the John Smith’s Stadium, with a breakfast arrival from 7.45am ready for the event to kick-off at 8.30am. The event is expected to run for around 90 minutes with the final whistle sounding at 10am.
Although entry to the event will be free, breakfast donations are welcome with all the money raised going to the Ridley & Hall 90th year charity partner, Kirkwood Hospice. The breakfast will include bacon sandwiches, a selection of Danish pastries along with tea and coffee.
Sean Jarvis, Huddersfield Town Commercial Director commented:
“I’m delighted that Huddersfield Town and Welcome to Yorkshire have joined together to put on this event. It’s a great opportunity to discuss and celebrate the benefits the Clubs promotion has had on both the town and the surrounding local area. It’s a real coup that Sir Gary Verity and Jacqui Gedman are taking part and I encourage all to book early to guarantee themselves a place on this event”
Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, Sir Gary Verity said:
“The whole of Yorkshire is immensely proud of Huddersfield Town’s achievement. It means everything to the club, the fans and the town and has definitely raised the profile of this part of our great county. We look forward to the Terriers’ continuing success in the Premier League and the inevitable boost it will bring to the local economy and visitor trade.”
