TICKETS for Ipswich Town's Christmas holiday home games are selling like hot cakes.

Even though the top-of-the-table clash with Wigan Athletic on Tuesday, December 21 is being televised live on Sky, a crowd of between 27,000 and 28,000 is expected to turn up at Portman Road. By yesterday 26,300 seats had been sold.

The home Coca-Cola Championship game with Stoke City a week later, on December 28, is already approaching 22,500 tickets sold, which will probably predict an attendance of around 25,000. Also on general sale is the New Year's Day clash with West Ham United, with 26,200 tickets already snapped up. If they continue to sell at the same rate a crowd of approaching 28,500 is likely.
