Ipswich Town Football Club have announced they will increase season ticket prices for the second time in eight years.

All adult season tickets in the lower tiers around Portman Road have been set at £399 for the 2014/15 season (a £9 rise over the season), while price increases in the upper tiers are around six per cent (between £25 to £50 extra for the season depending on the seat).

Those prices apply for those who buy before the ‘early bird’ deadline of April 14. Supporters will once again be ale to spread their payments over 12 months using an interest free direct debit scheme, with junior prices once again kept low as the club attempts to attract the next generation of fans (Under-11s pay the equivalent of 43p a game, U16s works out at £4.91 a game, while U20s is £10.05 a game).

Season ticket holders who purchase before the early bird deadline and who invest £10 a month in the club’s Academy Association for the year will receive a free season ticket for 2015/16 season should Town win promotion to the Premier League next year.

“One look at the Championship table illustrates the progress we have made over the past year or so,” said Town joint managing director Jonathan Symonds.

“Under Mick (McCarthy), we are heading in the right direction and striding closer to our ambitions of Premier League football.

“While success at first-team level is obviously the priority, we are also committed to investing in homegrown talent through our academy and we hope to reach Category One status by the end of the season. That will put us in the best position to find and develop our own players and see them progress to the first-team.”
