BIAS is committed to representing the interests of our membership. As part of our relationship with the club, the BIAS committee has regular meetings with BFC reps to receive updates, raise issues directly, and provide advice.

After the Nottingham Forest game last night BIAS met with both Kurt Pittman and Alan Walsh to discuss the matter of the new gantry structure in New Road. We felt the meeting was constructive and although we are yet to reach an acceptable and final conclusion to the matter we understand that, as a first measure, the black hoarding around the new larger gantry will be replaced with a clear perspex surround. BIAS remain disappointed that the club failed to
How was is it for you? Ipswich Town was our first home league game of the new season and it would really help BIAS if you could take a quick two minute survey to tell us of your experience. The survey has been designed to help us work with the Football Cub to improve the match day experience and equally for us to recognise when the Football Club are getting things right and are doing things well. We would

Recognising this, BIAS was keen to create as many
We are looking for supporters who would like to blog on the BIAS website.
The BIAS committee recently met with representatives of the Football Club to discuss a wide range of topics.
On Monday BIAS met with Kurt Pittman and Rosina Jones from the club to talk about next season’s ticket pricing, put forward the views of our members, and work to get a better deal for fans. We heard about the way that the pricing levels are set, and about how the club is using data to make informed decisions, and saw some of the ways this information is being used to try and grow the fanbase.
