Town Launch Portman Road Fanzone
Wednesday, 27th Jul 2016 17:38
Town have announced the launch of a new matchday Fanzone at weekend games at Portman Road with free entry for all home supporters, featuring bars, live music, food and a kids' area.
The Fanzone will be situated on the FieldTurf behind the East of England Co-operative Stand and will be open to season ticket holders, those with match tickets and club members from three hours before kick-off.
The Blue Inn marquee will host bars with a range of beers, while live matches will be shown on giant screens.
There will also be food outlets, live music and for youngsters bouncy castles and other activities.
“It’s an exciting venture,” said Town MD, Ian Milne. “We are hoping that the Fanzone will be a place that Town fans will meet up before kick-off and enjoy that pre-match build-up and buzz you get in the lead up to the game.”
The Fanzone will be open for the first game of the new season, against Barnsley on Saturday 6th August, with a number of Town legends set to attend.
Entry will be via Gate 1A from midday with last orders at the bars at 2.30pm. All supporters must exit the Fanzone through Gate 1A and head to their regular turnstiles in order to enter the stands. More details on the club site.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
