Club receives EFL accolade
Town have been named divisional winners of the EFL’s Away Fan Experience award for the 2019/20 season.
Blues have come out on top in League One for providing the best away fan experience at Portman Road.
Since 2016/17, the EFL have been assessing away days up and down the country, awarding the host club a score based on a range of criteria including planning and travel to the game, arrival at the ground, concourse facilities, seating accommodation, and engagement from Club staff.
Town were praised for the detailed away day guide’s that are published on the Club website and sent to the opposition by the Town’s supporter liaison officer, Liz Edwards.
Blues’ Junior Announcer initiative that sees a young home and away fan visit the Portman Road dugout to read out their team’s starting XI was also highlighted as best practice.
Town’s score of 9/10 which was received following our match against Shrewsbury Town in August 2019, sees Blues granted the divisional award for League One.
Other divisional winners were Middlesbrough in the Championship and Mansfield Town in League Two.
