Annual Open Day on Thursday
Wednesday, 24th Jul 2019 22:31
Town’s annual Open Day takes place this Thursday at Portman Road.
Gates to the free event open at 9.15am with the squad and manager Paul Lambert taking part in an hour-long signing session at 9.45am.
Entry to the Open Day FanZone is via Gate 1 on Sir Alf Ramsey Way but those wanting to attend the signing session must enter via Gate 17 on Portman Road.
Last year more than 2,500 fans got selfies and autographs with the players split across a number of tables.
The players will subsequently be put through their paces by boss Lambert and his staff in a training session on the main pitch from 11am, which can be watched from the East of England Co-op Stand.
Following the training session, a mascot race is planned with Town mascots Bluey and Crazee taking on all challengers.
With the weather expected to be very hot, fans are advised to bring plenty of water and sun cream, although the bars will have drinking water available free of charge and there will be food and drink on site.
Mark Murphy’s BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show will be coming live from the event, which was attended by 5,200 last year, while the FanZone will have a range of activities for all ages, among them the below.

History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
