By comparison, season tickets for MLS's NYCFC cost $23 per game.

Dean Hoyle, Huddersfield Town chairman, said: "When I took over in 2009, it has got harder and harder".

Ian Holloway, working as a pundit for Sky Sports at the beginning of the season, predicted that "The Terriers" would be relegated by the end of their campaign. We've been fantastic all season, everyone in the club.

"I think this whole group of players deserved it over the season". They've given everything in every game to reach this final.

Fittingly for a team who became the first in Football League history to be promoted with a negative goal difference, Huddersfield needed penalty heroics to go up. In training you can't create the same tension of a shoot-out in the stadium. "I still have a contract at Reading so there is nothing that is going to take me away".

"I'm so pleased with my players, my group and the whole town, and for the chairman (Dean Hoyle) who backed almost all my ideas". I'm sure we will be stronger.

"Of course, I've always dreamed of playing in the Premier League". The prize is so big and I feel for them. The planning begins immediately, given that they are a few weeks behind Newcastle and Brighton in terms of preparation, and manager David Wagner has shown that he has the tactical acumen not to be phased by the rigours of the Premier League.

"It needs to strengthen you". At the moment, it is hard but you need to take this experience into the next occasion.

"From the first day they treated me like I was an actual signing, I'm very grateful and glad to be part of it". "Both teams have had a lot of football and were exhausted".

"The players have done so well, I am proud of what these players have done this season". "He was an outstanding player throughout the season". We've got a great bunch of lads.

However, for Reading, how they pick themselves up over the summer is crucial. Everybody who wants to do so raise their hands.

David Wagner will be on the phone to Jurgen Klopp once the enormity of Huddersfield's rise to the Premier League sinks in.

"A lot of the pundits wrote us off before the season", said the 45-year-old German-born former United States worldwide.
