Their manager is Lee Clark, who signed a contract to be manager on 11 December 2008 and took charge on 15 December 2008.

In 1926, they became the first English team to win three successive league titles a feat which only three other clubs have been able to match, namely Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, no team has bettered this feat. They also won the FA Cup in 1922 and have been runners-up on 4 other occasions.

Nicknamed The Terriers, their mascot is Terry the Terrier. The club traditionally plays in a blue and white vertically striped shirt with white shorts. The club has developed a reputation as having a strong academy, and the present squad contains a number of academy products.

The side play its home games at the Galpharm Stadium, a ground shared with rugby league side Huddersfield Giants. The ground was originally named the Alfred McAlpine Stadium (after the construction company involved in its creation) as part of a 10-year sponsorship agreement. In 1994, this stadium replaced Leeds Road, which was Huddersfield's home since their founding in 1908.

Their chairman is local businessman Dean Hoyle, who took over from previous chairman Ken Davy on 3 June 2009.
