Town fans living in Germany attend first game of the season
A family of Town fans living in Germany have shown their support for less fortunate families by donating their season tickets for the 2022/23 campaign when they are unable to use them.
The Gomer family, who live in Munich, travel to Portman Road when they can and will likely make it to three or four games in Suffolk this season. They attended their first match of the season on Saturday and saw Bolton Wanderers hold Town to a 1-1 draw. Before the match, Lindsay and his family were greeted by Sarah Dooley, Head of Business & Operations, and met the first-team squad on their arrival at Portman Road.
“Thank you so much for the most amazing experience,” said Lindsay.
“I still can’t quite believe what went on in those few minutes. To meet the three Marks (Ashton, Steed and Detmer) as well as Mark Heath and Stuart Watson and then of course Kieran McKenna and the team as they got off the coach was an utter privilege for a fan and genuinely something I will never forget.”
“My family indulge me a lot with my love of ITFC but they too had a great day and were really appreciative of what you did, so thank you sincerely from them too and once again from me. I wish you well with the great work you do and look forward to being in touch over the season.”
When their season tickets are not in use, the Ipswich Town Foundation will arrange for underprivileged supporters to enjoy the matchday experience on their behalf.
If you know a group of Town fans who may be interested in using the tickets, please contact Leanne.email@example.com.
