Blues launch new ticketing scheme with thousands of tickets set to be distributed to local schools.
Ipswich Town have today started a new school ticket scheme which will see free tickets given away to local primary schools.
There will be a ‘School of the Day’ for each league game and that school will receive a batch of adult and junior tickets to attend a designated fixture at Portman Road. The scheme is designed to take the weight off teachers’ shoulders and allow children to attend with a parent or guardian.
The scheme will kick off for the West Bromwich Albion game with Whitton Community primary school the chosen ‘School of the Day’.
Blues midfielder Cole Skuse was on hand earlier today to distribute tickets to pupils at Whitton primary.
“This sounds like a great idea and having met some of the youngsters and given them their tickets I really hope they'll enjoy coming to a match" he said.
"Football can bring people together and this is a good opportunity for them to come to what might be their first ever match and see what it's all about."
Dan Palfrey, PR and Marketing Officer at ITFC, also expressed the importance of the scheme: “We want to encourage youngsters to come to Portman Road and gain that football bug,
“Hopefully they'll enjoy the experience with a parent or guardian and then maybe look to come back in the future.”
Please note, schools are contacted directly by the Club and it is at the Club’s discretion to which schools are selected.
