Movement of Away fans nearer the North Stand at ITFC sign now

Over the past few seasons there has been a noticeable slump in the atmosphere at Portman Road. The away fans are located about as far as possible from the vocal North Stand. Away fans from nearly every club have noticed the poor atmoshere there is at Portman Road and the severe lack of light hearted banter that there is from the South Stand and have noted it as being the main part of the experience that they found least enjoyable at ITFC, some even mentioning the crowd at Portman Rd. to be no more than "cardboard cut outs" that they "don't get behind their team."

Clubs in this division which I will now list, all have their vocal home fans near to the away fans which shows there is no reason why this can't be done at Ipswich:

Bristol City, Hull, West Brom, Crystal Palace, Cardiff, Preston, Blackpool, Leicester, Southampton and even our two local rivals Norwich and Colchester.

These are just the clubs from the Championship with countless others in the Premiership and Lower divisions, where it is managed safely and effectively. Many of the clubs noted above have some of the best home atmospheres in the division and it is no coincidence.

So we propose to Ipswich Town Football Club that we can boost the atmosphere at Portman Road like many other clubs by having the away fans moved to the north end of the Cobbold Stand. We would hope the club could listen to its loyal fans. Signitures will also come from away fans who have visited Portman Rd.

    If the atmosphere was better, i believe more people would come becuase it would be enjoyable to have a bit of banter with the away fans if the team was not playing well. instead of sitting there complaining! Does the club not want to make more money thoru

    The noise from the North stand at Ipswich is commendable, to move the Away fans closer would increase the atmosphere and make for an even better day out at Portman Road Club Cambridge United

    why also are derby matches moved to an ungodly hour. There is little trouble and would make no difference if matches kicked off at a sensible time, but you do insist on ruining peoples enjoyment. What would happen if Ipswich and Norwich met in FA cup and
