Best Sports Venue in the Region 2019


Best Sports Venue 2019

We are the current winners of The Best Sports Venue in the EI (Enterprise Inns) region of 400 pubs and bars. This honour was given to us by industry experts who saw our unique eye for detail when it comes to promoting and presenting live sport. We also won the Best Marketing Initiative in 2019 for how we delivered The World Cup 2018.

Live Sport from BT & Sky Sports


The Woolpack Sports Bar is renowned in Huddersfield as one of the best venues to watch live sport. On a Saturday afternoon, you will find 3 big screen HD TVs showing live football scores, Premier League football, horse racing, International rugby, or whatever the crowds want! And when there is a big boxing event or football match, we can pull down our 90 inch HD projector turning our pub lounge into a stadium!

The Woolpack Sports Bar is an official venue for Sky Sports and BT Sports. There is no foreign commentary, unreliable signals or poor quality picture. We show official broadcast games to the highest quality.

During World Cup 2018, we even opened our secret garden up, with a huge TV screen showing matches outdoors under our sheltered canopy with a bar, BBQ and table service to boot.

We absolutely love the big game atmosphere, with the volume turned up to the max and even support from the trumpets of Terrier Brass (Huddersfield Town’s official band) during the World Cup. We check every seat for optimal viewing position and re-arrange the layout to create standing areas. If you don’t believe us, check our Facebook!

You even have a chance of winning big money when watching big football matches at The Woolpack Sports Bar. Our own in-house score predictor runs for selected matches. For £2, simply pick the final score (and the time of the first goal as a tie-breaker) and if you win, the whole pot is yours. Most weekends we payout £40-£70, but when we have no winner, it rolls-over to the next game and has reached up to £700 before!

All Sports Live at The Woolpack Sports Bar


It’s not just football that we show at The Woolpack Sports Bar. We have a strong following for rugby, regularly showing Super League action on a Thursday night and England Internationals including the Six Nations. We also show major pay per view boxing bouts, including Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. Our PPV Boxing nights are always a big screen event, with the full surround sound… “Let’s get ready to ruuuuumbleeeeee”!

Horse racing is another popular sport at our sports bar. We always run a popular tipping competition for the Cheltenham Festival with cash prizes being handed out while watching the big races. The Grand National, of course, is another big racing event for us, as well as the Ascot Festival.

We have great connections with local sport too. Almondbury Woolpack FC run from our pub, two football teams who won back to back league titles between 2015 and 2017. We also host cricket teams during the summer, tennis clubs, badminton clubs and run golf tournaments.
