Portman Road passes pitch and stadium inspection with game against Barnsley to go ahead as planned
Town’s game against Barnsley this afternoon has been the given the green light to go ahead as planned, after passing an inspection of the pitch and the stadium area first thing this morning.
An extensive team worked overnight to clear the seating area an access points around the stadium and the safety officer at the Club has given the green light for the game to be played.
The pitch has been covered overnight and the snow that did fall has been cleared off the playing surface and into the first two rows of the Cobbold Stand and the East of England Co-op Stand.
Supporters in the lower tier of the Cobbold Stand will be upgraded to the upper tier. They should access through their normal turnstiles and will be issued with new tickets at that point.
Only the first few rows at the front will be affected in the lower Co-op Stand. Supporters in this area should check with stewards as they enter the Stand and those sitting in the ‘snow covered seats’ will be allocated new seats in the upper tier.
Supporters in those areas are advised to arrive early to ensure they are relocated in time for kick-off.
All fans are advised to be careful in and around Portman Road and take extra care with their journeys to and from the stadium.
