TOWN SUPPORT LEVEL PLAYING FIELD'S WEEKS OF ACTION

5 March 2020

Blues' dedicated Level Playing Field matchday against Coventry

Ipswich Town are proud to once again be supporting Level Playing Field's (LPF) Weeks of Action at this Saturday's match against Coventry City.

LPF's Weeks of Action are an annual period of inspiration and celebration of good access and inclusion at sporting venues for disabled fans. 

It'll be the fifteenth year of the campaign and we have plenty of activities planned for Saturday's game. Town players will be donning LPF awareness t-shirts in their warm-up, we have blind football in the FanZone as well as visually impaired tennis and boccia that'll be delivered by Ipswich Fit.

The SEN unit from Sidegate Primary School will be our School of the Day and our half-time penalty shootout will see a local disability team take to the Portman Road pitch.

Earlier this season we launched our sensory packs which are primarily aimed at children with autism to make Portman Road as accessible as possible. The packs have proved to be a huge success with almost 80 per cent of the packs being used on a matchday. 

The packs include:

  • Ear defenders
  • Mini soft football
  • Fidget spinner
  • disability awareness lanyard

If you're interested in obtaining a sensory pack for a matchday at Portman Road, please contact our disability liaison officer Lee Smith at lee.smith@itfc.co.uk
