Portman Road to Stage County Cup Finals
Friday, 9th Mar 2018 18:13
Portman Road will stage four Suffolk FA county cup finals in May.
The finals of the Omni Freight Services Suffolk Premier Cup, CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup, the Suffolk Junior Cup and Suffolk Primary Cup will all be staged at Portman Road unless the Blues are involved in the Championship play-offs.
The games will take place from Tuesday 8th May until Friday 11th May 11th with all the games 7.30pm kick-offs. Which final will take place on which day is yet to be decided.
Last season only the Senior Cup final was staged at Portman Road due to the pitch being renovated and the Elton John concert with the other games hosted by Colchester United at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Suffolk FA chief executive Richard Neal said: “We’re delighted to be able to host four Suffolk FA County Cup finals with Ipswich Town Football Club this year.
“Our strapline for county cups is ‘Living the Dream’ and we thank the team at ITFC for their commitment to make that ambition a reality for the players, coaches, spectators and officials involved in these finals.
Town club secretary Stuart Hayton added: “We are thrilled to be staging these county cup finals at Portman Road. It is important that we as a club continue to support and engage with our local communities and with grassroots football.
“We look forward to watching some of the most talented amateur players from Suffolk showing their skills on the Portman Road pitch.”

Avoiding Sunderland's Fate - Lessons From Sunderland Till I Die by vancouverblue
I was sat watching Netflix last night and the Sunderland Till I Die docuseries. As one episode turned into two and then five and thoughts of that decent night's sleep I knew I needed disappeared into the early hours, I couldn’t help but think of the similarities between them last season and Town this year.
We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
