Town Confirm School of the Day to Continue
Tuesday, 16th Jul 2019 13:07
Town have confirmed they are continuing the School of the Day initiative which was instigated last season.
The scheme will again see free tickets - 100 adult and junior seats - given away to different primary schools for each home league match.
Invites are already going out with this season's first School of the Day game the visit of Doncaster Rovers on Saturday 14th September once the school holidays have ended. The club directly contacts schools and it is at their discretion which are selected.
Dan Palfrey, Town's PR manager, stressed the initiative’s importance: “The scheme proved extremely popular last season. It was a no-brainer to continue it going forward this season.
“There is a good chance that it could be a child's first time at Portman Road, so we hope that they enjoy and embrace their visit.
“It’s not just about the 90 minutes, we hope they take in our FanZone activities pre-match and want to return.”
