Town Launch New Kits
Tuesday, 29th May 2018 18:13
Town have revealed their kits for the 2018/19 season, which see a return to white sleeves for the home strip, as well as red detailing, and orange for the away.
Last week, the Blues agreed a new four-year deal with adidas, the club's kit manufacturers since 2014.
“Reverting to a retro-inspired round neck, Town’s new home shirt features white sleeves with blue and red contrast detailing,” the club explain on the official site.
"The red detailing continues across the adidas three-stripe branding to the shirt shoulders, shorts side panels and sock turnovers.
“The away kit is one of the most striking kits yet from adidas. The solar orange shirt, shorts and socks, feature contrast black detailing. It’s sure to be easy to spot from a distance, being the brightest away kit Town have worn in recent times.
“Continuing the orange theme, Town’s goalkeepers will also wear an orange kit when turning out at Portman Road.”
The kits will all bear the new EFL names and numbers, in partnership with mental health charity Mind, which will also be available on replica strips. Town’s shirts will also again feature local charity EACH and the new shorts sponsor Nicholas Estates.
The away kit will be available via Planet Blue and online from Friday 8th June with hte new home strip due at Portman Road at the end of June, with a launch date of Friday 29th June having been pencilled in. The home kit can be pre-ordered online from Tuesday, 6th June.
The two goalkeeper kits will be launched in July on a date yet to be confirmed.
The shirts will be priced at £45 for adults and £35 youth sizes, which won’t include the Magical Vegas logo due to EFL rules on gambling sponsors.
The kits will be on display on the Town stand at the Suffolk Show on Wednesday and Thursday.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
