Huddersfield Town: Chairman Dean Hoyle set to cycle to Wembley for Play-Off Final

24 May 2017

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle abd his wife Janet are getting on their bikes so that a myriad of people can attend the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley.

Just as he did for Town’s last Play-Off Final at Wembley in 2012, Hoyle – alongside his wife Janet and five other cyclists – will cycle to the capital to raise funds under the Town Foundation banner, covering around 200 miles in the process.

The Terriers chairman also raised money to take local children to Old Trafford for the League One Play-Off Final of 2011.

Any money raised through the sponsorship of this year's ride will be used to give an estimated 200 Huddersfield locals from a myriad of different backgrounds a day to remember, paying for tickets and travel to Wembley for the Play-Off Final.

“Football is quite unique in its ability to bring people of different backgrounds together,” explained Hoyle. “The Play-Off Final gives Huddersfield Town a huge opportunity to make an impact on this front.

“I’ve been really inspired by the work that has been carried out in our area by the ‘More In Common’ charity, setup in honour of Jo Cox. As Jo now famously said, 'we have more in common than that which divides us' - I completely agree.

“By raising money, we can take around 200 Huddersfield people from all different backgrounds to the game together as one for a day to remember.

"Nobody should be marginalized or disadvantaged on the basis of their identity. That is not what Huddersfield Town is about and I want to illustrate that on the greatest stage of all, Wembley.

“I hope the community gets behind this idea and helps to create something special.”
