Elland-based utility management specialist Orchard Energy has entered in to a seventh season as a commercial partner of Huddersfield Town.
Orchard Energy specialises in helping businesses across West Yorkshire, and throughout the UK, save money on their energy and water bills, while also providing services around bill validation and revenue recovery.
The firm first entered into a sponsorship deal with Huddersfield Town ahead of the 2011/12 season, when Lee Clark’s side prepared to face the likes of Leyton Orient and Yeovil Town in their League 1 promotion push.
Town ended the season with a Play-Off Final victory on penalties over Sheffield United, and Orchard Energy has stuck by the Terriers ever since, right through to the incredible Wembley triumph in May that elevated David Wagner’s side to the top level of English football for the first time in a generation.
The Orchard Energy logo will feature on the training kit of the Huddersfield Town players and coaching staff throughout the 2017/18 campaign, as the team prepares for clashes with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Perimeter advertising featuring the Orchard Energy logo will also be displayed around the John Smith’s Stadium.
Orchard Energy Managing Director, Amar Hussain, said:
“Through our work in the energy sector we have forged lasting relationships countless local business, helping them cut costs and achieve refunds on their energy bills, so we are proud to be one the longest-standing partners of our local club.
“While Orchard takes on the giants of the energy industry, we can’t wait for Town to tackle some of the giants of football.”
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis said:
“As one of the Club’s longest-serving commercial partners, we’re delighted to have Orchard Energy on board with us for our first ever season in the Premier League.
“We enjoy a great relationship with Amar and his team in Elland, and look forward to seeing the partnership continue to blossom in the years ahead.”
