Huddersfield Town delighted fans by announcing a new cut price deal for 2016/17 season cards, with an initial first 10,000 on sale for £179 for adults, £69 for 8-17 year-olds and £23 for children under the age of eight.

The announcement from Dean Hoyle won plaudits from fans and attracted national attention - with Town now among the cheapest clubs to watch in England.

David Wagner hopes the new deal will woo back disaffected supporters ahead of his first full campaign in the hotseat.

Tickets go on sale at 7am this morning online and at the ticket office, and we're down at the John Smith's Stadium as the first fans snap up the chance to watch Town for amazing prices.

Your guide to buying a Town season card

Huddersfield Town fans are now buying their £179 season-cards. It’s a brilliant cut-price deal for the 2016-17 campaign and chairman Dean Hoyle is hoping for a massive take-up to improve the matchday atmosphere for head coach David Wagner and his team. The cut-price deal – amounting to £7.80 per game – is available to the first 10,000 people, initially, buying in the LV= Britannia Rescue Stand (Kilner Bank), the Revell Ward Stand (upper and lower tiers) and the Fantastic Media Family Stand (upper tier). So here’s your guide to buying a Town season card: 1 – Existing season-card holders who are simply wanting to renew their ticket are recommended to return the renewal form and method of payment in the envelope which has been sent out to them by the club. By returning details in this way, they will get in early for the first 10,000 sold and avoid having to queue at the ticket office. 2 – People applying for a new season-card, or those who are existing holders but want to move seats, can book on line from 7am tomorrow (Thursday, March 17), visit the ticket office or book over the telephone – although lines are expected to be extremely busy. Fans are reminded that booking fees apply for debit and credit cards. Cash and cheques are the cheapest method of payment. And a finance option is available on line. Existing season-card holders keeping their own seat should note they will not receive a new card – their information will simply be uploaded onto this season’s card. New cards will only be issued when a fan is changing seat or price class (ie junior to adult). New card holders should receive their cards in July.

Booked on line in five minutes!

This was the queue early on

Deal of the century!

Wagner football the big draw

My colleague Alex Porter is talking to fans in the queue.

Chris and Darren been there since 6.15am.

Much earlier rise than usual for Chris. First season cards - Chris normally picks and chooses, Darren last came regularly around 10 years ago.

Prices are the main draw but Wagner “definitely” a big draw.

Much better football to watch as well as good prices.

Matthew is much more positive

Matthew Baker from Rawthorpe is a lapsed fan.

Didn’t renew this season but now back for next season due to prices “too good to ignore” and the football of David Wagner.

Much more positive and good to watch the team.

Looking forward to going to watch matches again

A first for Peter - how many more?

Peter Boyle from Halifax has been at the stadium since 6.15am.

He’s retired now, having returned from overseas, and was buying his first season card ever!

Been queueing so early because he was keen to get in the Revell ward stand with a prime position - which he got.
