Earlier than planned release for 2013/14 kits but positive feedback from supporters
Town have revealed their new look for the 2013/14 season two days ahead of schedule.
The new home, away and goalkeeper strips have been released following an exclusive interview with Ipswich Player, which unfortunately was broadcast to iPad and iPhone users who have subscribed to the Football League’s official app, due to technical faults with Football League Interactive.
The Ipswich Player interview was scheduled to run live on Player early Saturday morning.
TeamCard and Season Ticket holders were set to get the first glimpse of the new kits at a launch event at Planet Blue on Friday evening between 5-8pm. This will still go ahead as planned, with those members being offered the first opportunity to purchase the new home shirt on the night.
Town’s Retail Manager, Lee Hyde, said: “It’s frustrating that a technical issue through no fault of our own has caused us to release the new kits ahead of schedule.
“We were made aware that the kits had been leaked online via Twitter and although frustrating, the feedback we have received from supporters has been very positive.
“So far the fans seem to really like the kit and it is great to see such a positive response.
“Lots of planning went into the scheduled launch evening on Friday at Planet Blue and we will still be going ahead with that, with TeamCard holders and Season Ticket holders having the first chance to purchase the new home shirt on the night of the event.”
