Huddersfield Town Odds

There are a wide range of Huddersfield odds available at the start and throughout every season.

With Huddersfield’s history of yo-yoing up and down the divisions, Huddersfield Town relegation odds are a popular choice for many bettors. However, as well as odds on Huddersfield to be relegated, lots of bettors were looking at Huddersfield promotion odds before their success in the Championship playoffs in the 16/17 campaign.

In a league where teams seemingly come from nowhere to earn promotion to the Premier League, or equally find themselves in a relegation battle with ease, Huddersfield betting odds did offer plenty of value depending on the market you’re betting on.

As well as outright betting, odds on Huddersfield Town include a wide range of individual match betting. The Premier League is a very popular league to bet on, with most bookmakers offering a huge variety of odds on a single Premier League match.

Behind-the-scenes bets are common too. Huddersfield Town manager betting odds can also offer value, so it’s worth listening to the latest Huddersfield Town manager news to stay one step ahead of the bookies.

History

Huddersfield Town AFC are an English professional football team who currently play in the Premier League, the first tier of English football. The first English club to win three successive league titles, the 2017/18 season was their first in the Premier League, and have played in all four professional divisions.

The history of Huddersfield Town Football Club begins in 1908. The club bought Leeds Road recreation fields, which was to be the home of Huddersfield until 1994.

In 1910, Huddersfield Town joined the Football League and played in the Second Division. Leeds Road was reconstructed by architect Archibald Leitch, who had also overseen the redevelopment of many football grounds in that era. The new Leeds Road stadium was opened in 1911, but following a drop in attendance figures, coupled with serious financial issues, the club went into liquidation.

In 1919, Huddersfield Town reformed but financial worries were never far away. A plan was formed for Huddersfield Town to move to Elland Road in Leeds, but following a supporter fundraising scheme, the club was able to keep their roots in Huddersfield. This appeared to be the turning point for the club, and success soon followed. The following season they not only reached the FA Cup Final for the first time, and more importantly they won promotion to the First Division.

Two years later saw Huddersfield Town win their first major trophy. The club reached the FA Cup Final for a second time, this time beating Preston North End 1-0 to lift the famous trophy. Huddersfield followed their FA Cup success with their first Charity Shield.

Between 1923 and 1926, the club won three consecutive First Division titles, the first club in English football history to achieve this. They followed their historic achievement with two consecutive runner-up places along with another FA Cup Final appearance.

With increased success came an increase in support. Attendances at Leeds Road improved and to cope with this new influx of fans the Huddersfield Town stadium was extended to eventually give it a capacity of over 60,000.

Huddersfield Town’s highest ever attendance came in 1932, when 67,037 spectators watch Huddersfield play Arsenal. However, the facilities at Leeds Road were inadequate to deal with such a crowd and two fans were crushed. Later, more injuries to fans occurred and Huddersfield improved their terracing.

During this time, Huddersfield Town established themselves as a consistent First Division club. Three more FA Cup Final appearances along with a second and third place finishes led Huddersfield into the Second World War, where the football calendar was suspended.

When the football season resumed, the success that Huddersfield Town had enjoyed the previous decade was a distant memory, and the club began to struggle in the lower half of the First Division table. In 1950, the Leeds Road ground suffered a fire, and Huddersfield had to play at nearby Elland Road, the home of Leeds United. Their form continued to decline, and in the 1951/1952 season the club suffered relegation for the first time in Huddersfield FC history.

However, the club bounced back immediately. A second place finish in their first season in the Second Division sealed their return to the top flight, and life back in the First Division started well, finishing their first season back with a third place final position.

Their First Division status didn’t last long however, and Huddersfield were relegated for a second time in the 1955/1956 season.  They were to remain in the Second Division for 14 consecutive seasons.

The 1957/1958 season saw Huddersfield break another record, albeit an unwanted one. Huddersfield became the first club in English football to score six goals in a match and still lose, a 7-6 defeat to Charlton Athletic, even though Huddersfield at one point were winning the match 5-1.

Improvements continued to the Leeds Road stadium. The ‘Denis Law’ floodlights were installed, so called because they were paid for by the £55,000 sale of Law to Manchester City.

Following middle-of-the-table finishes in the Second Division, the 1969/1970 season saw Huddersfield Town clinch the Second Division title, and with it promotion back to the top tier. Again, though, their First Division place didn’t last and the club were relegated two seasons later.

This was the start of a serious decline for Huddersfield Town. Their first season back in the Second Division ended in disaster, a 21st place finish relegating the club to the Third Division. The 1973/1974 season was the first time the club had played third tier professional football in their history, and Huddersfield couldn’t adapt to their new division. After only two seasons in the Third Division, the club were relegated again, becoming the first First Division champions to play Fourth Division football.

The 1975/1976 season was the first of five consecutive campaigns Huddersfield Town spent in the bottom tier. In 1980, the club won the Fourth Division title, and signs of recovery continued with another promotion in 1983. 

Back in the Second Division, the club found it tough and couldn’t push on to achieve another promotion. Instead, the club found themselves suffering demotion once again, a 23rd place finish in the 1987/1988 season consigning the club to the Third Division once again. It was during this season that Huddersfield Town suffered their biggest ever defeat, when Manchester City beat them 10-1.

The club spent another seven years in the third tier. During this time, the club did reach the play-offs, but were defeated by Peterborough United in the semi-finals. However, in the 1994/1995 season, the club succeeded in the play-offs and won promotion back to the second tier of English football, now called Division One following the formation of the Premier League.

The 1994/1995 season was also Huddersfield Town’s first season in a new ground. The club left Leeds Road and moved into the Alfred McAlpine Stadium.

Whilst life in Division One started well, Huddersfield were soon on the decline. At the turn of the century, Huddersfield Town were relegated back to the third tier, Division Two. The club’s first season in Division Two saw them just miss out in the play-offs, the subsequent season saw Huddersfield relegated once again. 

It was just a one season stop in Division Three and the club earned promotion via the play-offs and the 2004/2005 season was the first of eight consecutive seasons in the third tier, now called League One.

In the 2008/2009 season, Huddersfield Town set a new unbeaten Football League record, having gone 43 consecutive games without suffering defeat.

2008/2009 and 2009/2010 saw Huddersfield Town endure two successive failures in the play-offs. However, it was third time lucky when in the 2010/2011 season they enjoyed play-off final success. The club competed in the Championship until the 2017/2018 season, after their playoff success saw them achieve promotion to the Premier League for the first time.

Huddersfield Town Badge

The Huddersfield Town badge history has seen five different badges utilised. The Huddersfield badge is based on the town’s coat of arms. During the club’s success in the 1920’s and 1930’s, where they made a number of FA Cup Final appearances, the Huddersfield crest featured the coat of arms along with the white rose of Yorkshire. 

After this period, the club generally only used the initials HTFC embroidered on the Huddersfield kits.

In the 1969/1970 season, Huddersfield Town used the nickname ‘The Terriers’, and in 1980 when Huddersfield Town designed and used a crest to be consistently worn on their kits, an image of a terrier appeared on the badge. 

The terrier sits atop the Huddersfield coat of arms, which included two Yorkshire roses and an image of Castle Hill, with ‘Huddersfield Town AFC’ featured in a banner underneath.

In 2000, a new badge was created. This badge featured a circular design, with three start at the top, Huddersfield Town AFC printed at the bottom and inside the circle was blue and white stripes, a terrier with a football and a Yorkshire rose.

However, the Huddersfield Town supporters didn’t like the new design, and after just two years the badge was changed back to the old Huddersfield Town crest.

In 2005, the club changed its name from Huddersfield Town AFC to Huddersfield Town FC, which resulted in the name being changed in the banner below the coat of arms. 

In 2007, the Huddersfield Town FC badge was slightly altered again. The old badge was placed in a shield shape with the return of the three stars, based on Huddersfield’s three successive league titles, featuring above.

In 2018, the Huddersfield badge returned to the Terrier, which was part of the Huddersfield kit design in the late 1960's/early 1970's.

Colours

The primary colours of Huddersfield Town are blue and white stripes. The famous blue and white stripes made their first appearance in 1913, and have consistently been used as the colours of Huddersfield Town ever since. 

The standard Huddersfield Town kit features blue and white striped shirts with white shorts and black socks. However, the colour of the shorts and socks has occasionally been altered, with blue shorts being worn instead. The colour of the socks has changed more frequently, with white, black and blue socks alternating as the seasons pass.

When Huddersfield Town were first formed, the team wore white shirts with black shorts and black socks. This kit was then changed to red shirts, white shorts and red socks, before the standard colours of blue and white were adopted. 

Huddersfield Stadium

The Huddersfield Town FC stadium is the Kirkless Stadium, also known as the John Smith’s Stadium. The club moved into this ground in 1994, when it was known as the Alfred McAlpine Stadium. It then became the Galpharm Stadium before the stadium was renamed the John Smith’s Stadium in in 2012.

The John Smith’s Stadium is also home to the rugby league team, Huddersfield Giants.

The John Smith’s Stadium has a capacity of 24,500, making it one of the largest in the Football League, and bigger than some Premier League grounds.

The John Smith’s stadium features four all seater stands. These are the North Stand, known as the Fantastic Media Stand; the East Stand, otherwise known as the Kilner Bank Stand or for sponsorship purposes the Britannia Rescue Stand; the South Stand, or the John Smith’s South Stand; and the West Stand, also called the Riverside Stand or the Revell Ward Stand.

Huddersfield Town Football Club’s first ground was Leeds Road. This was the home of Huddersfield Town from 1908 to 1994. Used for 1,554 Huddersfield Town league games, it’s record attendance was 67,037, achieved in 1932 in an FA Cup match against Arsenal.

Supporters

The biggest rivals of Huddersfield Town fans are Leeds United. Huddersfield Town have the upper hand in these West Yorkshire derbies, winning 25 meetings to Leeds’ 19. 

Huddersfield Town also have a rivalry with close neighbours Bradford City, and with these sides often sharing divisions over the last two to three decades, this rivalry has intensified.

Other fan rivalries include Barnsley, another Yorkshire side, and Oldham Athletic, Huddersfield Town’s Lancashire rivals. There have also been fan rivalries with Halifax Town and with Manchester City.

Huddersfield Town fans traditionally hail from the town of Huddersfield, its surrounding areas and other parts of Yorkshire. The Huddersfield Town official supporters club is the Huddersfield Town Official Supporters Association, which maintains close ties to the club. There are also Huddersfield Town supporters clubs throughout the country and beyond.

The North Stand features a group of supporters called the North Stand Loyal supporters group, who decorate the stand with flags and banners before each home game. The ‘singing section’ is located in the South Stand.

Famous Huddersfield Town supporters songs include ‘Smile A While’ and ‘Ooh To Be A Terrier’. ‘Smile A While’ has been sung since the 1920’s.

Ownership

The Huddersfield Town chairman is Dean Hoyle. Hoyle, a Huddersfield Town supporter himself, is also the owner of the football club. He joined Huddersfield Town’s board of directors in 2008, and a year later became the majority shareholder. He replaced Ken Davy, who for a short time retained a minority stake in Huddersfield Town.

Ken Davy had led a consortium that bought the club in 2003 after Huddersfield Town suffered serious financial problems. Before this time, Davy was also chairman of the rugby league club, Huddersfield Giants.
