Huddersfield Town’s main rivals are other two clubs from West Yorkshire – Leeds United and Bradford City. Games between any two of these teams are often referred to as the West Yorkshire Derby, in which Huddersfield have the upper hand over both adversaries in terms of head-to-head clashes.
To a lesser extent, there are rivalries with Barnsley, Oldham Athletic and Halifax Town, and there was once much strain between Huddersfield and Manchester City. That rivalry, however, has been rendered pointless when the reigning Premier League champions became a top club with rich owners in 2008.
The club was formed in the summer of 1908, and they’re therefore among the younger clubs in England. They entered the Football League in 1910, and having narrowly avoided a merge with Leeds in 1919 due to financial difficulties, they went on to reach the FA Cup the following year, and in 1926, they became the first club ever to win three consecutive top-flight titles; a feat only Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have so far managed to match.
The Terriers called the stadium at Leeds Road their home from their inception to 1994, when they moved to Kirklees Stadium, currently known as the John Smith’s Stadium. They were a top-flight team almost the entire time between their first promotion in 1920 and the relegation in 1956, but since then they’ve been going through various rough patches. Apart from a pair of two-year stints in the top flight (1970-72 and 2017-19), they’ve been floating through the second, third and fourth tier of English football. Apart from the three league titles in the 1920s, they were also the runners-up on three occasions. They have the 1922 FA Cup in their trophy cabinet, and they’ve reached the final of that competition four more times. But they’ve never had much success in the League Cup, where they’ve only managed one semi-final (1968).
