Ipswich Town have agreed a price-capping deal for away games with 12 fellow Championship teams, the club have revealed.

The Portman Road outfit have written to the vast majority of the other 23 clubs in the division offering a reciprocal deal to cap the price of away tickets for adults at £25.

“We have received a very encouraging response so far and we have agreed a deal with 12 clubs,” Town’s director of retail operations, Lee Hyde, told the club website.

“Some clubs have expressed an interest and want to consider it further before making a decision and some have yet to come back to us. That happens at this time of year with people away on holiday.

“At the moment, of the clubs we have contacted, only one has rejected the idea.”

The maximum price of £25 will only apply on a reciprocal basis. If the opposition do not take up the offer, their fans will pay the standard price for that game when at Portman Road.

The Ipswich Town stalwart recalls his fondest memories, his regrets and expectations in his final interview before jetting off to begin his American dream.

Tommy Smith will be watching from afar as Ipswich Town attempt to find a new level of consistency to force their way into the Championship play-offs.

Tommy Smith leaves Ipswich Town after more than 267 appearances for the Blues over 10 years - he certainly made his mark. We’ve picked out the best pictures from his time at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town U23s paid for failing to convert their chances as they lost 2-0 to Sheffield United in the Premier League Cup at Portman Road, writes Harry Mallett.

Ipswich Town will miss the ‘influence and experience’ of departing stalwart Tommy Smith, according to striker Martyn Waghorn.

Long-serving defender Tommy Smith admits the tears were flowing when he said goodbye to his Ipswich Town team mates having today completed his move to MLS side Colorado Rapids.

Ipswich Town remain 12th in the Championship table following Saturday’s dire 1-1 draw at lowly Bolton Wanderers.

Martyn Waghorn knows he and his team-mates must rediscover their clinical side and begin to put together winning runs if they are maintain any kind of play-off push.
