DETMER | WAKING A SLEEPING GIANT

26 April 2021

“We will work tirelessly for the supporters. We are genuine in what it is that we’re trying to accomplish at this football club"

Mark Detmer says Gamechanger are at Portman Road to connect with the supporters, inspire young fans and wake a sleeping giant.

The real estate expert is part of the Three Lions group - along with Brett Johnson and Berke Bakay - that instigated the purchase of Town from Marcus Evans through Gamechanger 20 Ltd, which is backed by US investment.

All three are hoping to get to watch Town play as early as possible next season and Mark told the Club website: “We are biding our time until we can travel to Ipswich. We can’t wait.

“What we looked for in a club was a passionate fanbase and an opportunity to wake a sleeping giant.

“Clubs survive because of the fans and the community that they’re in so when we looked at the opportunities in England, by far Ipswich was our favourite – there wasn’t even a close second for us.

“The community will be a big aspect for us. I think it’s really important to have that connection with supporters.

“We need to focus on the youth. There is an unbelievable opportunity to create those same experiences, those memories that their parents or grandparents will have experienced following the Club. Our goal is to get the youth as passionate about Ipswich as so many other generations have been.

“We will work tirelessly for the supporters. We are genuine in what it is that we’re trying to accomplish at this football club. We’re all in and we hope that supporters will be all in on our efforts too.”
