At Ipswich Town FC we take great pride in our community. We understand that just like the support we receive from our fans; our support can make a real difference to individual causes and charitable organisations, whether it’s backing a campaign, promoting an event or donating a prize to help with fundraising.  

Wherever possible and appropriate, Ipswich Town FC works to support local charity and community events. Please email for more information, but please note that demand for the Club’s support is very high and unfortunately we aren’t in a position to accommodate everyone. 


With the increase in demand for charitable support, the Club aren’t able to assist everyone to the extent they, or we, would like. However, where we are able to, we do our best to support our fans with their fundraising by offering a donation of two tickets to a home game at Portman Road. This ensures we can support as many causes as possible.


Please note, we're unable to offer match tickets during the close season.


Ipswich Town FC receive a huge volume of requests for kit to be donated to charitable causes across the UK and Rest of the World. Unfortunately the level of kit which we have available to donate to causes is extremely limited each season. As a Club, we work with nominated charity partners in order to distribute all available kit on our behalf. This kit is then donated to charities across the world on our behalf. Due to this, we unfortunately do not have any additional kit which can be donated in lieu of any additional requests.


Due to the volume of requests the Club receives, we aren't in a position to accommodate requests for autographs, signed merchandise or items sent in to be signed by the manager or players. This is inclusive of charity requests. 

The Club sell a range of signed merchandise via and the official ITFC online auction website For more info about this service, details of products on offer or to place an order please email 

Alternatively, an area outside our main reception is put aside for autographs after most Saturday home games. This area can be accessed after the game via the main entrance on Constantine Road. A valid match ticket is required.  

If you would like to include a personal message in the matchday programme to mark an event such as a birthday, congratulatory, welcome or a bereavement, please email some words and a photo (where appropriate) to Please note photos must be sent as a jpeg attachment and be at least 200KB in size. The deadline for programme entries is 12 days prior to the match. 

If you would like to include a message on the matchday scoreboard please email Please note messages are short due to a limitation on characters (i.e. happy [age] birthday [name]) with the deadline for scoreboard messages 24 hours prior to kick-off. 


It’s always sad to hear that a member of the Ipswich Town family is no longer with us and we always try our best to provide support to family and friends at this difficult time. 

As we have lots of caring fans who would like to involve ITFC in service arrangements we offer the loan of a custom-made Ipswich Town coffin drape for funeral services which can be borrowed for up to seven days. We require a £250 cash deposit, payable on collection from our main reception, which will be refunded in full when the drape is returned to us in the same condition. 

Please contact our main reception between 09:30-16:30 Monday to Thursday on (01473) 400500 or by emailing to arrange.

What is the Club's 'Memorial Matchday'?

Our Memorial Matchday takes place on the first home game on the new year. We remember all supporters, ex-players and staff who have sadly passed away in the previous calendar year.

What's involved?

A minute's applause will take place prior to kick-off in memory of those who are no longer with us. A social media video and website story will be published, along with all names in the matchday programme.

How can I remember a loved one?
