Samba feel around Portman Road

The Suffolk School of Samba proved smash hits when they performed around the ground before Blues beat Norwich on derby day a few years back and the 40 strong group will be back at Town during the season, aiming to keep the Blue Army entertained with their rhythmic beat. 
Portman Road will be dancing to the samba beat on Saturday as the Club look to up the tempo on a matchday. To find out more about Orbzorbing, including Harness Zorbing, which is a new and exciting extreme experience that involves hurtling down a hill in nothing more than an inflatable ball, check out their website on
Watch out for the UpTown Girls who will be walking around the pitch before the game to sign up a volunteer to represent the Super Blues and the opposition.
Our friends from Orbzorbing, who are based in Colchester, will be overseeing a race between two fans over the length of the pitch to see who’s got what it takes in the ultimate ball control challenge.
A Town fan and one from the visitors will do battle in a game of speed, endurance and skill. Enter the zorb ball extravaganza.
The samba band are just part of a newlook to matchday at Portman Road, with the Club’s cheerleaders, the UpTown Girls in action, while at half-time there will be a head to head challenge between the supporters of both clubs.
With the next Olympics and the World Cup taking place in Brazil, it will be an early chance to get in the rhythm for Rio.
They will be in action around the ground before kick-off against Blackburn.

MyWay has been adopted as the Club’s new anthem after a landslide win in a vote amongst the supporters and it’s hoped there will also be a new addition to the soundtrack at Portman Road at the Blackburn game. Wait until kick-off to find out more.
