Huddersfield has announced a new partnership with local Kirklees College.
The deal will see Kirklees College feature on the front of Huddersfield’s first team home shirts for the 2010/11 season.
Speaking of the partnership Huddersfield’s Commercial Director Seasn Jarvis commented "This new agreement with Kirklees College is a very exciting one for the football club and I am looking forward to working with them throughout the 2010/11 season and beyond.
"As 'The Yorkshire Club', one of our main remits is to expand the reach of Huddersfield Town into the wider area and this new partnership with an organisation that is growing and with access to over 20,000 students and 1,400 employees across Kirklees will help us achieve this target.”
Chris Sadler, Principal of Kirklees College is also looking forward to the new deal and said "We are very excited by the many opportunities this partnership presents our college with; firstly to develop reward and recognition initiatives with our students and staff, secondly to engage with parts of our community that are hard to reach, such as people not currently in education, employment of training, and under-14 learners, and thirdly to place the college at the heart of local business networks.
"Our students will also enjoy extra-curricular enrichment activities and potential for work placements. Plus our staff will have increased access to use the fantastic facilities which will off-set existing conferencing costs whilst also increasing the quality of events. In return we provide the football club with exposure to the next generation of their supporters."
