Norwegian Blues Retain Supporters Cup
Saturday, 1st Jun 2019 18:20

The Ipswich Town Supporters Club of Norway won the annual Supporters Cup for the second successive year in Oslo earlier this afternoon, thrashing Manchester City 6-0 in the final.

The tournament, which has been run by the Supporterunionen for Britisk Fotball for more than 20 years, is a six-a-side competition involving more than 1,000 Norwegian supporters of British clubs.

In the group stage the Blues beat Kidderminster 7-0, West Brom 6-0 and then Liverpool 1-0 to top Pool F.

A 2-0 victory over Arsenal followed in the round of 16 before Manchester United were vanquished 6-2 in the quarter-finals.

A 3-1 victory over Wolves in the semi-finals took the all-conquering Blues the final where they hammered Manchester City to carry off the trophy, which they won for the first time last year, at a canter.

This is quite amazing - this is a PROPER tournament length, and out of 1000 people, our guys were the winners! 7 in a row! Big congratulations from North Dakota, USA! :D

That's what happens when you can't buy winning

Well done, class is permanent

Fantastic effort.

However, I'm more amused/impressed there are at least 6 Kidderminster fans in Norway.

Respect to these guys .... great achievement considering the competition and the numbers they must attract.

Those scorelines make great reading, if only, Those were the days when we used to hand thrashings to the likes of Man Utd! Those pitches bring back some memories too!

Well done guys.

Heja de blåa! (COYB! - sorry can't do it in Norwegian, but you'll understand). Fantastic supporters.

Nice to see them wearing a "proper" shirt rather than that Magical Vegas nonsense.....

If I became an Ipswich Town Supporters supporter but never went to see them play, would that make me a plastic fan?

The ref in picture 4 looks like he's about to violet the ball in picture 3.

Fantastic job lads and well done----especially on a dodgy looking pitch!!

Lap of honour next season before a game-----would be nice if the club could organise that (not holding my breath!!)
