Non-League Day...

It would be great to use the international break to fill up the attendances at local non-league football clubs that could do with the boost that a bumper attendance would give them.

Usually super cheap, and a great day to witness and encourage local non-league football teams...

Here's some local to Ipswich... or you can put in your own postcode and find a game near you...

A great way to get kids into live football in a cheap, safe, friendly environment while having a pint in the clubhouse and a pie at half time. You that is, not the kids..

Absolutely. And ITFC themselves promoted Non-League Day last season, listing a number of local non-league games. I can't see them doing it this year, if they're wanting to fill Portman Road for the ITFC Women's team. It's a shame they've done that on the Saturday rather than their usual playing day of Sunday.

Just saw this post and thought it would add a few waverers...

"Genuinely fallen out of love with (top-flight) football.

Maybe even all "elite" football in general.

It's a combination of Academy clones, playing the same style, the end of 3pm kickoffs, too much footy on TV, VAR, state owned teams etc etc

The rich and greedy have essentially killed the working class game as its a cash cow/business now.

League 1 & League 2 is still interesting as it reminds me of footy when I was a kid, in the sense that teams have different styles and they're closer to the fans (or "customers") than those further up the pyramid.

Honestly, to anyone under 30 football was unreal in the 90s to early 00s, some of the names playing the game then was 🤯🤯 - Sunday you'd watch football Italia on Channel 4, you'd have to stay up to watch MOTD it felt special, a treat, almost.

If you DO miss the excitement of football and you're sick of the stuff I mentioned above, go support your closest team further down the pyramid.

Football isn't dead, it's just moved to lower league BUT...

It WILL die if we don't start supporting these sorts of teams by turning up and putting our hands in our pockets, buying the programs, a burger and a pint.

If you DO have a team locally playing in Vanarama National Leagues or lower go and check them out, take your kids - it's a couple of quid to get in and it's well worth it."

You mentioned Non League Day on the women's football thread, is their a need to have this thread as you seem to be trying to derail interest in a historic Ipswich Town womens match at Portman Road on 23rd March 2024...You could try to generally push for non league football engagement, which most of us support, but given the clash of dates refrain from targeting 23/3/24 specifically.

Non-League Day IS ON the 23/3/24... so that is why I mentioned it on the other thread, as it's a shame and rather disappointing the club have moved the Women's game to the Saturday from the Sunday as it now clashes with it, whereas last season they supported it (see below).

I'm not trying to 'derail interest' - I started this thread after I'd posted it in the women's football thread, as I thought it might get lost in the comments there and it is a big day for local non-league football clubs to get much needed support on an international break - which is what "Non-League Day" is about, which if you read the links I included you'll find out.

It's a very good point.

Whilst the initiative from ITFC is fantastic, it feels like an incredibly rare slight mis-step in scheduling the match to clash with Non-League Day.

Bang out of order and somewhat at odds with your sentiment towards the women's team too. Perhaps you might want to rethink this post?

There are non league matches every weekend, perhaps you should advertise non league matches and support the ITFC womens match equally, given the clash on 23/3/24. Extra supporters turn up at local games and at PR, a win win outcome.

if people are stuck, they could do worse than go join the punks and Hippies at Clapton AFC on the 24th. Experience the oldest ground in London - its quite something! One thing though: don't go if 'woke' annoys you!

Personally, I shall be most likely getting another kicking on the aged footy pitch at the hands of East Essex dons. Last match: 11-0, but we did start with 8.5 players and they are the best team in the league.

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry. Was Ullaa

Hoppy regularly posts about non league football and his side Ipswich Wanderers, in fact there has been a post pinned for about a month where he was raising funds for the club to have ground upgrades.

I presume the game isn't on the Sunday as the club have weekly stadium tours on those days.

What's 'obnoxious ' and 'hypocritical ' about supporting both, local football and womens football? Why the club changed the date to Saturday is for them to answer.

I answered it, they do stadium tours on the Sunday, all of which are sold out for the whole season so no room for rearrangements.

What didn't YOU understand?

I'm involved as a volunteer at a local non-league side, Ipswich Wanderers. Non-League Day has been established for a number of years now, specifically on an international weekend, to try and encourage people to go out and support such clubs that could really do with the larger crowds on that day.

I know, from an Ipswich Wanderers perspective, how tough it is to run a club at that level, so the larger crowds are a MASSIVE help, more through the gate, more purchases from the kitchen and the bar etc etc.. every little bit helps. (which is also why I did the 16 mile sponsored walk from Ipswich Wanderers to Stowmarket Town before the game on Saturday to raise some additional funds for the cost of the ground grading requirements we've got to complete).

The success of ITFC men's team in the Championship is fantastic, and the season so far has gone beyond our wildest dreams. As a season ticket holder of a number of years, ITFC has always been my club so I am loving it. The downside of that success is that even when Town are playing away from home, people are watching the games on TownTV, or by other means, and attendances have been down in the non-league scene as a result, which adds to how tough it is to keep going.

You said on the other thread that you'd "Mentioned watching them in the past but playing out at Felixstowe put us off." and "Didn't realise the womens team were down in 3rd division" ... and "Lets support them, they afterall represent us all - they to are IPSWICH TOWN." (obviously apart from if you have to go all the way to Felixstowe to do so...!!) - so moaning about someone involved in a local non league club making a post about supporting non-league clubs on Non League Day when you've clearly not been that bothered about supporting the women's team up until this point does seem a bit hypocritical, don't you think?
