Supporters take advantage of extension, ticket bundles catching on while five celebrate watching Town for free
Approaching 1000 supporters took advantage of the extension to the Early Bird prices to purchase a season ticket over the last month.
Blues brought in Emyr Huws, Jordan Spence, Joe Garner, Dominic Iorfa, Bersant Celina and Tom Adeyemi over the summer break, with Martyn Waghorn making it seven new arrivals when he joined the Club from Rangers yesterday.
The original Early Bird deadline was set at April 17 but the Club decided at the end of last season to honour those prices until midnight on August 4.
Those supporters who bought a season ticket for 2017/18 by April 17 received £10 added to their season tickets cards by the Club which can be used to purchase goods - including match tickets - online at www.itfcdirect.com as well as merchandise in Planet Blue.
There is no minimum spend to use the £10. It works the same as any ‘voucher’ and you don’t have to use the full amount in one transaction. If you spend £5, the remaining fiver will remain on your season ticket card.
Five lucky Blues received their season ticket for the new campaign free of charge after being pulled out of the hat as the winners in a grand draw.
Averil Lockwood, Jonathan Earle [represented by Amy Berriman], Steven Perkins and Michael Kelly (above) were at Portman Road on Saturday for the win over Birmingham to use their prize for the first time while George Leonard (below), who is travelling, was backing Blues from the other side of the world.
Town’s ticket bundle scheme has also received an encouraging response from the Blue Army with last season’s total take up already eclipsed this term.
Supporters can choose from the three options available and save up to £28 against individual match tickets.
