The way I see it is, until the football resumes with supporters in attendance, as a donation towards the club. Say what you want about Marcus Evans etc etc but the club needs are financial support more than ever and if my £27 a month can help towards that then so be it.

I pay upfront so I will lob in my contribution in the next couple of weeks.

As you have £27 a month spare, why do you feel that ITFC is the best recipient for it?

I appreciate that this could sound like I am having a dig, but I really aren't, just wondering what thought processes are behind giving money to the football club when there are other deserving causes out there.

I see what you're saying, but I'm in a fortunate position like Sitters that I can afford to carrying on paying it monthly, however, am I missing something?

Football will return at some point (how soon/when that will be is anyone's guess), so at least I know that I have my ST to go when it does.
Secondly, if you don't renew, then football does return, you don't get the cheaper price and you'll have less months to pay it off so it'll end up costing quite a bit more a month.

Not yet but will do so this week. Nothing (directly) related to Covid-19 per se and games being behind closed doors or not happening at all, it's more that (a) I might be moving away from the region in the next 6 months, and (b) I don't really enjoy the games anymore anyway and haven't for a fair while.

I’ve paid it for the last 6/7 years so why change?

And like Paul_Knows says it makes sense to carry on paying as it’ll stay the same price for the coming season and the next as well, no point in shooting yourself in the foot.

Yeah I contacted the ticket office this morning and sent the required email.

Considering the uncertainty surrounding group gatherings, and the likelihood of games being played behind closed doors,I felt freezing the price wasn't really showing consideration for the supporters.

Just like SitfcB I will continue paying and as far as the games we have missed out the club can have mine as a donation. Possibly we are in a luckier position than others on this board but Ipswich Town FC still has to continue running as a business. Yes you may feel other constitutions May need money and I have supported them, but ITFC is my club and don’t want to see us going the same way as Bury.

Fair enough. I've cancelled as well to be honest.

I did think it was a decent package Evans offered us but I decided quite a while ago not to renew.

Think I will cancel now they’ve made it clearer about no group gatherings until 2021.

The savings made in future seasons from having a constant season ticket isn’t really noticeable, to be honest.

The money saved from cancelling 3 Season tickets will however be very noticeable.

You could argue that to be the case whether there's a pandemic or not.

We'd be a dull sanctimonious bunch* if, after meeting our essential commitments, we only spent money on 'deserving causes'.

I emailed and cancelled the DD. Being furloughed and over £1.5k a month down on take home I really cant justify paying for a season ticket when more important things are needed. Football is a luxury some cant afford at the minute.

Agree with this and would love to do the same. But sadly cant. It's a nightmare trying to get a job ATM, really really tough.

If you're usually pulling in £4k plus take home then £330 a year for a season ticket is a drop in the ocean, surely.

Stopped mine last week.
With so much uncertainty about when crowds will be allowed back into stadiums decided that I would wait and see how things pan out. If fans are not allowed back into grounds until 2021 it might even be a case of asking myself have I really missed attending games that much.

I cancelled on Friday. I’ve been loyal enough over 40+ years not to feel bad about it.

Lambert will still be in charge next season, ME will invest less, crowds will be down, the squad will be weaker than ever and to be honest I’ve not missed going to games as much as I thought I would over the past few weeks.

Unlike the majority of comments I have read, I didn’t think much of ME’s email about next season.

I really hope I’m wrong, I’d love us to have a good season but I just can’t see it. The last decade, especially last season and how it just petered out have knocked any remaining optimism i had about the club out of me.

Cancelled mine and XRS junior but would have done so irrespective of Covid-19. Four to five hour round trip, Junior potentially off to Uni and first year back as ST holders (had a ST for 10 years+), we are just not getting to enough home games, much easier to buy individual tickets,

I take a similar view to buying music - sure it's NOT 'essential', but frankly it's a thing that's keeping me sane and a lot of the artists I love are 'working' artists who rely on touring to make a living. So I'm buying direct from websites and bandcamp where I can.

Where has the financial contribution been throughout the past decade in the transfer markets though?

Too many windows have been and gone with no real ambition being invested into the playing squad.

Recruit has been overall p*ss poor for many of year.

I have no doubts, absolutely no doubts that come this transfer window Downes and Woolfenden will be sold and we will be looking around the bargain buckets again for bosman frees.

ME will invest less? It’ll be at least at the current level and in reality more given the complete lack of income at present.
