Sean Jarvis, former Director of Huddersfield Town, becomes Friend of WY Basketball

Exciting news from WY Basketball.  The ‘Friends of WY Basketball’ initiative just got a major boost with the addition of Sean Jarvis. A well-respected sports business professional and familiar face in Huddersfield, Sean played a vital role in Huddersfield Town Football Club’s success in achieving Premier League status for the first time in their history as their former Director. Currently, the Chief Executive Officer for Leicestershire County Cricket, Sean still has a real fondness for Huddersfield and its sporting culture.

Mark Mills, one of the leaders of WY Basketball, understands the importance of having Sean’s support for the organisation. He says, “Sean is an iconic name in Huddersfield and rightfully so. His help will really fast-track what we are trying to achieve here at WY Basketball.”

Sean’s extensive knowledge of the commercial sporting landscape in West Yorkshire and unmatched experience in delivering returns for commercial partners will be invaluable for WY Basketball. Sean is looking forward to helping out and says, “Mark approached me about launching basketball in Huddersfield several years ago and I could see the potential then but the timing just didn’t work out.  If the business community can get behind WY Basketball, they could make a really positive impact on the region.”

As a friend of WY Basketball, Sean joins Nadio Granata and Paul Mitchell in maximising the potential of basketball in the region. If you want to learn more about this exciting initiative and WY Basketball’s plans, then please don’t hesitate to reach out at
