Sanjiv Buttoo, Editor of BBC Radio Leeds, told RadioToday: “I am really thrilled to announce that we have extended our coverage of Huddersfield Town commentaries for another three seasons. We’ve enjoyed a long and productive relationship with the team who have just started their second campaign in football’s top flight.”
David Threlfall-Sykes, Head of Marketing and Communications at Huddersfield Town said: “We’re delighted to extend our commentary deal with BBC Radio Leeds for a further three seasons. Ensuring that supporters who cannot make it to our games can closely follow our matches is very important to the Club and the West Yorkshire Sport team has provided great coverage for many years now. We look forward to working closely with the team at BBC Radio Leeds to build upon our great working relationship and to help bring our fans closer than ever to their team.”
