SCHOOL TICKET SCHEME CONTINUES

16 July 2019

Blues continue ticketing initiative with thousands set to be distributed to for 2019/20 season

Going into it's second season, Town's primary school ticket scheme 'School of the Day' will see free tickets given away to a different primary school for each home league game.

The chosen 'School of the Day' will receive 100 adult and junior tickets to attend a designated league fixture at Portman Road. The scheme that was very popular with schools last season is designed to take the weight off teachers' shoulders and allow children to attend with a parent or guardian.

The scheme is already up and running with invites to schools going out as we speak. The first game will be against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday, 14 September to allow enough time upon return from school holidays.
 
Last season, Cole Skuse, Trevoh Chalobah and Club mascot Crazee visited schools to distribute tickets to pupils and the Club will be looking to increase player presence in schools this coming season.

Dan Palfrey, PR Manager at ITFC, also expressed the importance of the scheme: “The scheme proved extremely popular last season. It was a no-brainer to continue it going forward this season.

“There is a good chance that it could be a child's first time at Portman Road, so we hope that they enjoy and embrace their visit. It's not just about the 90 minutes, we hope they take in our FanZone activities pre-match and want to return.”

Please note, schools are contacted directly by the Club and it is at the Club’s discretion to which schools are selected.
