Ipswich Town have reported that early season ticket sales have dropped by 7% compared to the same period last year according to the East Anglian Daily Times.

The Tractor Boys have won just one of their last seven league matches as the club’s Play Off chase has faltered and fans have made the decision to vote with their feet ahead of another potential season in the Championship next season.

Ipswich Town saw season ticket sales ahead of the 2015/2016 season total 13,561 and that figure increased to 14,014 with the sale of half season tickets following the club’s solid first half of the season.

Since Mick McCarthy’s side’s 2-1 home victory over Reading in early February, the club have suffered a loss in form and have won just three of the following twelve league matches. Ipswich Town now find themselves eight points behind sixth placed Sheffield Wednesday with just five fixtures remaining.

Lack of entertainment has also been a factor for long suffering fans of The Tractor Boys with matches involving Ipswich Town producing three or more goals just once in the last seven fixtures.

The last three matches at Portman Road have seen Ipswich Town lose to struggling Brentford and Rotherham United and only manage a goalless draw with relegation threatened Charlton Athletic. These results have done little to encourage supporters to renew their season tickets.
