IPSWICH Town Football Club is teaming up with health professionals today to help people kick their smoking habit today.
The Blues' community trust is working with the Suffolk Stop Smoking Service and the Kickfree campaign will launch at today's home match against Plymouth.
In addition a new quit club will start at the club's Portman Road ground on Tuesday, February 10, and continue every Tuesday night from 6.45pm to 8.15pm.
The stop smoking advice is free and will include Ipswich Town goodies and other Portman Road experiences for successful quitters.
Tracy Green of the Suffolk Stop Smoking Service said: “Research shows smokers are up to four times more likely to stop smoking successfully if they get support from their local NHS Stop Smoking Service, compared with relying on willpower alone.
“We're hoping that any football fan who wants help to give up smoking will come and visit the Kickfree stand on Saturday.
