Blues' dedicated Level Playing Field matchday against Royals
Town will once again be supporting Level Playing Field’s (LPF) Weeks of Action. This Saturday’s visit of Reading will be the Club’s dedicated LPF matchday.
LPF’s Weeks of Action are an annual period of inspiration and celebration of good access and inclusion at sports venues. Town take pride in the inclusion for all regardless of anyone’s disability, race or religion.
The Town players will wear LPF t-shirts during their warm-ups to raise awareness of the week and we’re delighted that LPF will also be our Charity of the Day. We will be joined by LPF Chief Executive, Owain Davies and Development Officer, Neal Hickey so please be sure to visit their stand in the FanZone.
The Ipswich Charioteers will be in the FanZone from midday, taking part in a small-sided wheelchair football match. Town fans will be able to get involved and we’re also looking forward to welcoming children from the Ipswich Deaf Society, who will be receiving their First Time Fans certificates from Bluey.
Alongside the Ipswich Deaf Society, we are also welcoming the divisional winners of the FA People’s Cup; Healthier for Life, Wots Up Warriors and Disability Sport. Congratulations, guys.
In the matchday programme there is an interview with father and son, Mike and Harrison Kemp. Harrison is a young disabled Town season ticket holder and the pair speak about their matchday experience at Portman Road.
Moving into the second week of action, we’re hosting a disabled football tournament at Portman Road on the practice pitch in partnership with Suffolk FA, where Tristan Nydam will be in attendance.
