Blues’ Championship campaign gets underway against the recently relegated Premier League side, with a 3pm kick-off, but before a ball has been kicked, there is sure to be a roar of approval echoing around the ground.
“Blackburn are obviously recently relegated from the Premier League and wouldn't normally be classed as a Grade C game but it's our first Championship match of the season and a good opportunity for us to offer the very competitive ticket prices,” added Simon.
The game has been categorised as a Grade C game, with adult ticket prices set at £20, £25 and £30, apart from in Premium areas.
The athletes and torch bearers will receive a special civic reception at Suffolk County Council's Endeavour House headquarters before making their way to Portman Road.
“It will be a great opportunity for us to salute the achievements of them all and I’m sure our fans will give them a great ovation.”
“I hope our fans will take their seats in time to salute the fantastic achievements of our Team GB athletes, as well as the torch bearers who were rewarded for their personal dedication by carrying the spirit of the Olympics through Suffolk,” said Town chief executive Simon Clegg.
Joining them will be more than 50 of the Olympic torch bearers who carried the flame through the county.
