Huddersfield Town have just launched a special limited edition charity shirt … and they are selling fast.

The team will wear the shirt at Town’s home clash against Norwich City on Wednesday, March 15 with money from the sale going to four charities.

These are: Slaithwaite-based Ruddi’s Retreat, which provides free caravan holidays for families with seriously ill children; mental health charity Andy’s Man Club; the Huddersfield Town Foundation; and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The shirt is yellow and red and only features the Yorkshire Air Ambulance logo and colours as English Football League rules do not allow all four charity logos to be shown.

Only 500 have been made and when they’ve gone, they’ve gone. There are only a very limited number of adult sizes remaining which are only available in the Town shop at the John Smith’s Stadium. Junior sizes are still available in-store and online at

Designed by internationally renowned illustrator and Town fan Peter O’Toole, the shirt costs £49 for adults and £39 for juniors. It can be personalised with all letters and numbers in red.

Peter has previously worked on projects for leading brands such as Mundial football magazine, FIFA, the New Yorker and Variety magazines. He has worked with Town’s retail team since 2016, collaborating on projects from kit launches through to retro mug and T-shirt designs.

Town’s head of retail Luke Cowan said: “The aim behind the idea of the charity shirt is to raise awareness of four fantastic charities and to raise lots of money with all proceeds split between the charities.

“I think our fans will agree that the shirt is something very different to the famous blue and white stripes and back us by buying it.”

Club ambassador Andy Booth added: “The shirt is certainly eye catching and I hope it catches the imagination of our fans who will purchase it and wear it with pride at the Norwich match.”

Peter O’Toole said: “My advice to fans is to buy as soon as you can as I’m sure these will be collectors’ items in the years to come.”
