Women <3 Football is a Huddersfield Town Supporters Association (HTSA) campaign set up to raise the profile of Huddersfield Town Ladies FC (HTLFC) as well as women’s football in general.

HTSA recently ran a free coach to and from the Stafflex Arena for the HTLFC v Middlesbrough Women fixture, with a helping hand from Fans For Diversity. The stadium is located quite a distance from the town centre so this move provided supporters with an opportunity to get to the game easily. Along with a good turnout, the local newspaper covered the story.

HTSA has made huge efforts to formalise the relationship with the Ladies team. Along with changing the trust constitution and inviting key people at the ladies set up to speak at their AGM, they have also provided sponsorship to a player (Sarah Danby) as well as having the HTSA logo on the back of the shorts.
