Huddersfield Town administration and takeover rumours

Rumours are currently circulating on social media platforms that Huddersfield could be potentially entering administration as early as next week.

This is currently unconfirmed by the board or officials at the club. Huddersfield sit 23rd in the Championship just 6 points from safety following a recent 1-0 defeat away from home at The Hawthorns. It is well documented the club has had on-going issues off the pitch but this now looks to be finally culminating with more recent speculation of a potential takeover.

The club is currently owned by Dean Hoyle with 25% and Phil Hodgkinson with the larger majority of 75%. René Neelissen who owns AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Eredivisie league is rumoured to be interesting in buying into the club. [Yorkshire Live] There are also apparent rumours of an American bidder, too.

Rumours yet to be confirmed. With Huddersfield currently in a relegation battle with Blackpool, Wigan and Cardiff City - entering admin would all but confirm relegation with a looming points deduction applicable if it became a reality. The Terriers haven't had much luck recently with the conclusion of the 2021/2022 campaign. Town finished 3rd place in the Championship - 6pts shy of an automatic promotion spot behind AFC Bournemouth. Nottingham Forest who sit 14th in the Premiership then went on to knock the Terriers out the playoffs following a 1-0 victory at Wembley.

Since the start of the 22/23 Championship campaign Huddersfield haven't managed to gain any momentum due to injuries and form. The Terriers will be hoping for positive news over the next few weeks both on and off the pitch to end this Championship campaign.
