Almost 21,000 expected at Portman Road for Gills test
Town welcome Gillingham to Portman Road tomorrow, and the below matchday guide will tell you everything you need to know if coming to the match.
Following the government's easing of Covid-19 Plan B restrictions, and in line with the latest guidance, the Club can confirm COVID Passes will no longer be required as a condition of entry to Portman Road.
We are, however, encouraging supporters to take a lateral flow test before travelling to the game.
ARRIVAL TIME TO PORTMAN ROAD
Supporters are strongly advised to arrive at Portman Road in plenty of time, with 21,000 supporters set to be in attendance.
There are a limited number of tickets available and sales will run up until kick-off. They can be purchased on the day online via tickets.itfc.co.uk or from the matchday ticket office on Constantine Road from 10am.
No on-the-day sales will take place in Planet Blue, with supporters are encouraged to buy their tickets online and in advance of the match.
You will have a recommended entry time on your match ticket, please try and stick to this time as this will help with the flow of supporters. These are only a guide, though, and you will not be denied entry if you miss your slot.
Season ticket holders will not have an allocated entry time, but are still strongly advised to arrive in plenty to time.
The ticket office phone lines (03330 050530) are open from 10am until midday on Saturday. The ticket office is also contactable on email via email@example.com.

AROUND PORTMAN ROAD
Flower beds have been installed at Princes Street end of Portman Road, meaning that supporters parking in the NCP Portman Road car park will need to either turn right towards Handford Road or go straight over down Sir Alf Ramsey Way.
