With regret, Huddersfield Town Women announce that we will not be applying for promotion into the FA Women’s Championship for the 2021/22 season.
After months of contemplation, the board decided that this is in the Club’s best long-term interests and we will continue to build in order to be in a better position to meet the FA regulations needed to compete in the second tier in the future.
Club Chairman David Mallin says that the club still holds ambition to fight for promotion next season.
“We had planned to make an application for a FA Licence to gain promotion to the Championship but, given all the uncertainty the committee have decided to hold off for this year which gives us 12 months to plan and, be better prepared for the financial costs that promotion would bring.“
“We only want the best for the players and understand that fans will also be disappointed by this decision, but it’s for the best and we hope everyone will see that. We didn’t want to make an application if we can’t sustain a credible campaign in the Championship.”
