Away Days: Ipswich Town

9 April 2015

Plan Saturday's Trip

The first of back-to-back away games, this weekend Blackpool make the hefty trip to Portman Road, where they'll take on play-off hopefuls Ipswich Town.

The Seasiders' record at Portman Road isn't an impressive one, and with The Tractor Boys hunting down a top six spot it looks to be a tough assignment.

Nevertheless Pool have impressed in recent games, and travel with nothing to lose after relegation to League One was confirmed.

Here is a quick guide on getting to Portman Road. 

By Car
Around 270 miles separate Bloomfield Road and Portman Road, but supporters are advised to allow up to five hours to make the trip. The best route involves using the M6 and A14. 

Portman Road,

By Train
Ipswich train station is a five minute walk to the stadium. The quickest route from Blackpool North involves going via Preston and London Euston, then trains run directly from London Liverpool Street to Ipswich. In total the trip takes around five hours to make. 

Home to Ipswich Town since 1884, Portman Road can sit 30,311 supporters on a matchday.

Standing outside the stadium famously is Sir Bobby Robson's statue, after he proved so successful as the club's manager between 1969 and 1982. Most recently expanded in 2002, the stadium also has a stand named after Sir Alf Ramsey.

Blackpool's last visit there resulted in a 0-0 draw last season.

Supporters can pay on the gate at the away turnstiles on Saturday, however a price increase will be put in place.

The original prices were as follows: 
£26 for Adults
£19 for Seniors (60+) and NUS card holders
£18 for Under-20s
£10.50 for Under-16s

On the day an additional £2.50 will be placed on adult and concession tickets, while Under-16s will pay £1 extra.
