Football fans can once again watch England in World Cup action on a big screen at Portman Road on Saturday.
All four of England’s games in the tournament have been shown in the FanZone, located behind the East of England Co-op Stand, with around 2,000 people watching the drama unfold on Tuesday night as Gareth Southgate’s side held their nerve to beat Colombia in a penalty shoot-out.
The Three Lions now face Sweden in a quarter-final on Saturday (3pm ko) and Ipswich Town Football Club have changed their plans for the IP1 LIVE music festival as a result. The second day of the event has now been pushed back to 6.30pm.
Gates open at the FanZone will open at 1.30pm, with entry remaining free.
When the England game has finished, fans will be asked to vacate the stadium immediately to enable IP1 LIVE to start on time.
Undercover kick off the entertainment at 6.45pm, with Underline The Sky, JS & the Lockerbillies and Barny Holmes to follow before Samantha Harvey is on stage at around 9.45pm.
Tickets for the event are priced at £5 for adults and £1 for children and are on sale via www.IP1Live.com or at the stadium on the night. A donation from the event will be made to EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices).
