Huddersfield Town completed their fairy tale season this afternoon by winning promotion to the Premier League – and the club’s board plan on rewarding long-term supporters.
Huddersfield started the season looking to simply avoid a relegation battle, but the brilliant leadership of manager David Wagner led them all the way to Wembley Stadium and a winner-takes-all showdown with Reading in the play-off finals.
It was a pretty turgid match, but Town managed to squeeze through a nail-biting penalty shootout and will now be playing the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea next season.
And if you’ve had a season ticket since 2009 or before, this afternoon’s result would’ve been doubly sweet, as those supporters will be paying just £100 for their season books – a figure which equates to just £5.26 per match in some cases, as per the Daily Mail.
Huddersfield supporters who have held season tickets since 2009 will be able to buy one for £100 next season. Around £5 a game. Brilliant??

We’re sure you’ll agree that it’s a pretty classy gesture from the club’s hierarchy – and surely it’s about time other teams take note and follow suit?
What do you make of the pricing structure?
