Football stands together

7 March 2022

Tuesday night's Sky Bet League One fixture against Ipswich Town will see the two sides come together in support of the people of Ukraine, and all those suffering from the ongoing conflict.

As a mark of solidarity, City will wear all yellow on the night, while Ipswich will don an all blue home kit. The corner flags at Portman Road will be Ukraine flags, with a large flag also set to be displayed in the Cobbold Stand.

The two sides will also unite before the match tomorrow night, with a collective photo and display scheduled to take place shortly before kick-off along with a minute’s applause.

The British Red Cross' Ukraine Crisis Appeal will be holding a collection outside and inside the ground, with all proceeds going directly to those suffering from the conflict in Ukraine.

Imps chief executive Liam Scully said: “Like many people, I have been following the events in Ukraine with sadness and a sense of despair. As a club we have made changes to our social media and also shown a message of solidarity on the advertising boards at LNER Stadium.

“Tuesday’s game against Ipswich Town will see both sides come together to show our support and thoughts for the innocent people of Ukraine. We are calling for peace and our thoughts are with all those who have been impacted.”

In times of adversity, football stands together. We ask that all supporters attending Tuesday’s game show their support in whatever way they can.
