Huddersfield Town will celebrate their promotion to the Premier League with the club's supporters at a civic ceremony on Tuesday evening.

The Terriers secured their place in the top flight with a victory on penalties over Reading in the play-off final on Monday.

Upon arrival in the square, players and club officials will take to the stage in order to address fans.

Just a day after supporters took over half of Wembley they will be back out in force to celebrate David Wagner and his players.

After the victory at Wembley, Huddersfield boss Wagner said: "I said to the players before the game that they are already heroes because they were fifth in the league. In football, hero to zero can sometimes be only a week but they are now legends. Everybody will remember what this group of players has done."

Next season will be the first time the Terriers have played in the Premier League, where they will face the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Huddersfield last played in England's top division back in 1972, making the return a historic moment for the club.
