Following the changes to football over the lockdown period, the Club has opted to maintain its production of matchday programmes through a subscription model, alongside individual programme sales.
With supporters unable to attend games on the resumption of the 2020/21 season, the club has chosen to offer a subscription model to allow supporters to get their matchday programme delivered, and hopefully get closer to that 'matchday feeling' in the comfort of their own home, for every home fixture this season!
'The Pirate' picked up a whole host of awards over the lockdown period, celebrating a fantastic 2019/20 season for the programme. In early July, the programme was judged to be the best in League One by Premier Progs, before winning the 'best programme in Sky Bet League One award' in the Programme Monthly and Football Collectable awards. 'The Pirate' was given a score of 18/20, the joint highest across all four divisions, a massive credit to hard work and craft put into the production of the programme.
Moving into this coming season, our suppliers, Curtis Sport, have set up a page on their online store to allow you to purchase the subscription for £95, which will include all home programmes for the season, both in the league and various cup competitions. Curtis Sport will then send you a copy of your programme ahead of each game directly from their production house - meaning just one payment will cover you for the duration of the 2020/21 campaign!
The subscription will begin with our bumper 100-page season preview, which will feature as our programme for the Ipswich game on Saturday, 19th September! However, there will also be a small, simple edition of 'The Pirate' for the EFL Trophy game against Walsall.
It'll include a reflection on the 2019/20 season, a preview for the season ahead, as well as much much more!
Individual programme purchases will also be made available throughout the season from the Curtis Sport website.
