IPSWICH Town is set to unveil its season ticket prices for the next campaign within the next few days.

Members of the media have been called to attend a briefing at the football club tomorrow when details of prices will be discussed.

It is not known whether there will be any change in the cost of a season ticket and individual tickets, although current season ticket holders will have their ticket prices frozen.

When the football club unveiled its pricing scale for the current campaign, it offered fans buying a season ticket the chance to renew it for the same price in 2003/04.

This promise was made regardless of whether the season ended with promotion to the Premier League.

Season ticket prices were last increased – by an average of 2.9 per cent – at the end of the 2000/01 season, when Town finished fifth in the Premier League and qualified for Europe.

After relegation the following season, ticket prices were frozen even though there are more matches in the Nationwide League.

A record 19,000 season tickets were sold for the current season, although this is likely to drop for the next campaign if Premier League football is not secured.

This season the football club has recorded an average attendance of more than 25,000 at its home matches and the last two home matches have seen bumper crowds in excess of 29,000.

With two matches of the current season left to play, Ipswich need to win their games and rely on other results to get into the lottery of the play-offs.

The last home game of the season is against Wimbledon on Saturday.
