You must have witnessed situations, in person or via pictures and videos, where popular figures are seen among the spectators watching their favorite teams or sportspersons during games. Celebrities have, in one way or another, identified with one sport/team or the other.

Renowned actor Patrick Stewart is an ardent supporter of English Championship team Huddersfield Town. The 82-year-old is an English actor whose career has spanned seven decades in film, television, theatre, and video games.

Stewart’s accolades include nominations for most prestigious awards out there. In 1996, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His remarkable contributions to the field of drama were recognized with a knighthood bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II in 2010. The popular TV personality starred in movies and shows like X-Men and Star Trek.

It may shock you to know that, unlike other popular actors, Stewart watches every Huddersfield game. He is based in Los Angeles, meaning he definitely cannot watch all Huddersfield games in person. However, he attended the match at Wembley, where Huddersfield secured their promotion, and more recently, he visited Vicarage Road, Watford FC’s home, to witness Huddersfield’s 3-2 victory over Watford.

Stewart once mentioned that he never misses a game and watches every match on TV. He emphasized the importance of these games in his weekly routine, noting that his wife recognizes their significance. Sometimes, he records the matches and selects a specific two-hour window to watch, appreciating the ability to rewind and enhance the viewing experience.
