Legends mural the start as stadium to get Ipswich Town feel inside and out
Town owner Marcus Evans has said the Club are committed to improving the look of the stadium and giving it more of an Ipswich Town feel over the coming months.
Plans are in place for more branding inside and outside the ground, featuring the history of the Club, as well as improvements in decor.
A ‘Legends of Ipswich Town’ mural is now in place in the Sir Bobby Robson Stand and has gone down well with the Blue Army, while the roof of the stand will be cleaned in March.
“We are also in the process of providing more Ipswich Town branding around the concourses with the Legends of Ipswich Town mural in the Sir Bobby Robson Stand just the start,” wrote the owner in an article in Saturday’s matchday programme.
“The Cobbold Stand has been improved in look with further plans to enhance that in the summer.
“These are small steps on a long journey but I will aim to tick items off the list every season including those cosmetic improvements to the stadium.”
A mural depicting the history of the Club is planned for the windows in the Cobbold Stand, while the concourses in the Sir Alf Ramsey Stand will have a facelift before the season is over.
Local artist Sally Jackson provided the ‘Legends of Ipswich Town’ mural and will be involved in other projects around the Club.
“I’m thrilled with how the mural has gone down with the supporters,” Sally, who is in her final year at University of Suffolk, studying for a degree in fine art, told the Club website.
“I was at the game against Bristol Rovers and it was lovely to see the fans taking photos and chatting amongst themselves about the artwork.
“The Club recognise there are other areas of the stadium that could do with a bit of a ‘makeover’ and I’ll be working with them to put some ideas onto paper.”
