Northern Commercials ‘Backing’ Continues Date: 26/06/2014

Ahead of the reveal of the 2014/15 home kit on Friday, Huddersfield Town can confirm that its home shirt will once again feature the logo of long-standing club partner Northern Commercials across its shoulders.

For the third successive season, the logo of the Brighouse-based firm will appear on the back of the First Team’s home shirts during the upcoming Championship campaign – as well as on replica home shirts sold in the shop.

An independent business formed in the area in 1971, Northern Commercials sells new and used trucks and vans, specialising in Iveco and Fiat ranges.

As well as its Brighouse base, Northern Commercials has offices across the UK in locations such as Manchester and Brighton.

To celebrate the renewal of the partnership, Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis visited Northern Commercials to thank Dealer Principal and Managing Director Roger Peel.

Sean commented:

“Over the past two seasons, the Northern Commercials logo has become a recognisable part of the Club’s home shirts and I’m delighted that will continue as we head into the 2014/15 Championship campaign.

“We pride ourselves on working closely with locally based businesses with national reach and Northern Commercials is a prime example of a Huddersfield success story, as it has offices around the UK and is the Iveco dealer for the entire North West.

“Roger and the management team at Northern Commercials are passionate about their business and see the value in their partnership with Huddersfield Town. I’m looking forward to tailoring our working relationship to benefit both parties even further over the coming season.”

Managing Director of Northern Commercials and lifelong Huddersfield Town fan, Roger Peel said:

“I’m in a privileged position, to be able to support the Club and wider community through business. We are delighted to be extending our kit sponsorship to three years and look forward to a strengthened relationship with the Club over the course of the season.”
