Hit the bar and you could be in the final to win a £2000 cruise

Fancy your chances of hitting the bar at Portman Road and winning a cool £2000 cruise at the same time?

That’s the prize on offer this season in the Club’s crossbar challenge, sponsored by Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines, that takes place at half-time.  

Each competitor will have two efforts each at hitting the bar. If they hit the target they will automatically qualify for the grand final to take place at the last Championship game of the season, against Sheffield Wednesday on May 3.

What you win
The prize on offer from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is a £2000 seven-night cruise for two people in May from Harwich to the Norwegian Fjords, home to some of Europe’s most naturally beautiful scenery. All food is included on your cruise and you will be staying in a superior outside cabin.

How to enter 
A Crossbar Challenge question will be published in each matchday programme and via the Club’s other communication channels in the lead up to the next home game. 
The answer to each question can be found on All entrants who answer the question correctly will go into a draw for the next game and three will be pulled out to take part. 

To take part in the Championship game against Nottingham Forest scheduled for March 29, answer the following question.    

In 2012, the Fred. Olsen Cruise ship 'Black Watch' was voted 'Best for...' what in the Cruisers Choice Awards? 

Email your answer to, along with your name, address and contact details by the closing date of midnight on Wednesday, March 26.
