Huddersfield Town FC extends 10-year sponsorship deal ahead of second season
Huddersfield Town and marketing agency, Fantastic Media have extended their 10-year sponsorship ahead of the club’s second season in the Premier League.
The Leeds-based marketing agency has been a long-standing commercial partner of Huddersfield Town, supporting the club since its centenary season in 2008.
The Birstall-based agency has a long history of sports sponsorship; sponsoring the family stand at the John Smith’s Stadium - home of Huddersfield Town – for the last 10 years; owning the stadium naming rights at Emley’s Welfare Ground; and supporting the Sheffield United Academy.
Huddersfield Town’s commercial partnerships manager, John Williams, said: “We have welcomed many new sponsors to the club thanks our Premier League status, but it is gratifying for us to welcome back Fantastic Media who have been with us for many years.
“Their sponsorship over many years has helped to make the club what it is today, and we look forward to their continued support for many years to come.”
As one of the biggest sports branding companies in the North of England, Fantastic Media works with professional clubs in the region including Leeds United and Sheffield United, as well as Huddersfield Town.
The agency - one of the fastest growing integrated agencies in the North - has seven Huddersfield Town fans as employees, including managing partner, Alisdair Straughan - who is former head of communications at the club.
He added: “Fantastic has supported Town for many years. We understand the commercial power of sports sponsorship and marketing and we have many of Huddersfield Town’s other partners as our clients, so the relationship works well for us.
“It gives us an opportunity to entertain our national clients at a local Premier League match - and, as a fan, I think that’s probably the ultimate mix of business and pleasure. We look forward to working with the club in the future.”
