Town issue safety message ahead of tonight’s game
Town fans are asked to stay in their allocated seats and not move into Section 6 in the lower Sir Bobby Robson Stand if they don’t have a ticket in that area.
The Club have been made aware of supporters in that part of the stadium moving across into that area after entering the ground.
“The noise and atmosphere generated in Section 6 and in the Sir Bobby Robson Stand in general has been fantastic,” Town secretary Stuart Hayton told the Club website.
“We have had reports though that some supporters are moving across into Section 6 when they have not got a ticket in that part of the stadium and that is causing some safety concerns and annoyance for fellow supporters who can’t get to their own seat.
“We ask supporters to remain in the seat they are allocated because the safety of all fans is of paramount importance to the Football Club.”
Stuart also reiterates that the Club will not tolerate any form of offensive or anti-social behaviour from supporters – at home or away, including chants or songs.
“The football world has pushed out the message again this week that racism and any other offensive behaviour or comments will not be tolerated in the game,” he added.
“Our fans are among the best behaved in the country and have been for many years but with recent events in Bulgaria and in the FA Cup game at Haringey, it’s timely that we reiterate Ipswich Town has a zero tolerance to any anti-social behaviour and we will act accordingly if we need to.”
The Stamp It Out text number, 07834 439229, is available for all supporters to report discreetly any incident they feel needs attention, enabling the Club to investigate.
