Bumper crowd expected as Town look to turn derby day Blue
The countdown to derby day is on with Club staff at Portman Road today to put out around 25,000 blue cards in seats ready for kick-off.
Town are looking to create a wall of blue as Luke Chambers leads the team out for the clash with Norwich.
“The fans have got a massive part to play in all this. This is a game for supporters and if we’re together, we’re stronger,” the skipper told the Club website.
“It should be a great atmosphere and the more blue we see on the day the better.”
Blue cards - ready to be held up as the players walk out - will be under seats in all home areas except lower Sir Bobby’s, where the giant Town flag will be unveiled before kick-off.
The FanZone opens at 9.30am with alcohol served from 10.00am. There will be a steel band playing; mini football; a penalty shoot-out, inflatables; face painting and loads more.
Psalms, who won a Vodafone Future Breakers competition on Capital FM in July and were invited to the Vodafone Big Top 40 studios in London to perform their debut single ‘This Isn’t Love’, will be performing in the FanZone.
The band includes Town’s assistant manager, Terry Connor’s daughter, Nicole, along with Sam and Ryan and they will be playing two sets.
Supporters are reminded that the game is an all-ticket match.
Tickets will be on sale online at www.itfcdirect.com until kick-off and in Planet Blue until 10.30am on matchday.
Only supporters who have a purchase history at Portman Road will be able to buy match tickets for the game.
Norwich have sold out their allocation. The game kicks-off at midday and is covered live on Sky TV.

The blue cards are sponsored by Vertas and Mervyn Lambert Plant Hire and include a competiton to win a signed shirt and match tickets.
