Local primary school introduced to their local football team
Year 2 pupils from Cliff Lane Primary School were at Portman Road this afternoon for a tour and an ITFC themed maths and literacy lesson, before receiving tickets for Saturday's clash with Burton Albion.
The Class of Blues initiative is part of a strategic effort from the Club to engage further with youngsters in the area, including First Time Fans, School of the Day and Junior Announcer.
EFL research suggests that children are most likely to watch their first game at the age of seven and then go on to 'pick' which team they will support. Therefore, Town's Class of Blues initiative is a way of introducing Ipswich Town to Year 2 pupils at local schools.
