TOWN SUPPORTS LEVEL PLAYING FIELD WEEKS OF ACTION

28 February 2022

Lincoln clash to be designated fixture

Ipswich Town is proud to be supporting Level Playing Field Weeks of Action.

The annual campaign takes place between 26 February and 13 March, and is about celebrating disability access and inclusion at sports venues.

Town’s home game against Lincoln City on Tuesday, 8 March will be the Club’s designated Level Playing Field match, with other activities taking place during the fortnight:

Saturday, 26 February

Town's disability team travelled to Bury Town on Saturday with both sets of players supporting Level Playing Field.

Thursday, 3 March

Our adult disability football session will be running at Portman Road. For more details, please email lee.smith@itfc.co.uk.

A group of disabled Town supporters will take part in a quiz against rivals Norwich City via Zoom. 

Monday, 7 March

The Club will be showcasing the work of Soccer Sight - the service which allows visually impaired supporters to listen to full match descriptive commentary for all league and cup fixtures from within the stadium, to help improve the matchday experience.

Tuesday, 8 March

There will be matchday messaging at our game against Lincoln City, along with a presence in the FanZone and a feature in the matchday programme.

Saturday, 12 March

Hidden disabilities charity, Sunflower, will be in the FanZone promoting awareness. Wearing the Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around the wearer including staff, colleagues and health professionals that they need additional support, help or a little more time.

Ipswich Town is proud to be an inclusive football club, that strives to ensure football is accessible and all supporters have an enjoyable matchday experience.

If you would like to take part in any of the events listed above, please email the Club's disability liaison officer Lee Smith at lee.smith@itfc.co.uk.
