Club to look to cater for those with health concerns when fans return to Portman Road
Town are looking at ways to help older and ‘vulnerable’ season ticket holders carry on watching football at Portman Road.
With so much uncertainty over when and how football will return in front of supporters amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Club owner Marcus Evans has written a letter to Town fans outlining the strategy Town will look to take for those season ticket holders who are happy to renew for 2020/21 now and take advantage of the Club’s 12 month interest free Direct Debit scheme.
The letter prompted some of the older generation season ticket holders to contact the Club with their health concerns over watching Town play at Portman Road when fans do return.
“The safety of every one of our supporters is always of paramount importance to the Football Club,” Marcus told the Club website.
“That will be more relevant than ever when football supporters start returning to stadiums again and we understand why our older fans and the more vulnerable will have concerns over that here at Portman Road.
“There are a number of possibilities that we will look at; maybe designated entrances to the stadium that only our older fans can use; allocated time slots as well. Anything that makes them feel more comfortable watching games at the stadium will be considered.
“We are also talking to the EFL about the chances of season ticket holders having the ability to watch games streamed live from Portman Road so they can watch from home if they have serious health issues.
“I can assure our older generation of season ticket holders that we will do everything possible to help them follow the Club’s fortunes close up.”
