The club are looking for fans to make their presence felt at behind-closed-doors matches by sending their Town flags to display in the stands.

Anyone with a flag that would like it to be displayed at Portman Road should email dan.palfrey@itfc.co.uk with a picture of the flag, details of its size and how it will be fixed.

The club will review and confirm whether the flag can be displayed and when it can be dropped off at Portman Road.

People are warned not to take flags to Portman Road without approval from the club as they will not be accepted.

Once the flags are in a safe position on seats, they will stay there until further notice and will not be removed after each match. The club has said it cannot accept responsibility for flags which may become damaged due to weather conditions.

Flags will be available to collect from the stadium, when hopefully a limited number of fans can return to Portman Road.

The club has also said flags must be dropped off and collected by the same person.
