Grant Thornton ready to support Town for another year

Wed 24th Aug 2011 | Football Sponsorship

Huddersfield Town has today announced that leading financial and business advisers Grant Thornton will be supporting the Club during the 2011/12 League One season.

Grant Thornton is one of the Club’s main partners and has pledged their support ever since Dean Hoyle became Chairman and re-branded Town the ‘Yorkshire Club’. Grant Thornton has backed the club since 2009 as recognition of the way the Club has nurtured links with supporters and organisations across the country. 

More recently, the financial advisers have supported the Huddersfield Town Enterprise Academy - which took place throughout the 2010/11 season and became a focal point for businesses in the Yorkshire area to come together and exchange ideas regarding business practice and networking. Three meetings were held throughout the season including one at Pontefract racecourse. For more information on the Huddersfield Town Enterprise Academy head to the Club’s commercial website; www.htafccommercial.com 

Grant Thornton UK LLP is a leading business and financial adviser with offices in 27 locations nationwide. They are a member firm within Grant Thornton International Ltd, one of the world's leading international organisations of independently owned and managed accounting and consulting firms.
