Sue and Sophia’s Matchday Experience - Ipswich Town

29 October 2019

On Saturday against Ipswich Town two Southend fans were invited pitch side to meet their favourite Blues player and got a chance to go behind the scenes and see what goes on prior to kick off.

Sue travels a fair distance to watch the blues in action, not only to the home games but also the away ones too.

Sophia got to meet her hero Stephen Humphrys, and chat with a number of players and managed to grab some photos with them along the way.

Both of their experiences started with a tour around the ground and a chance to have some photos on the pitch and in the dugout, we then went behind the scenes into the press room and tunnel area where Sophia and Sue got to meet some of the Blues players and got the chance to have a photo with their favourite player.

We also had a young Blues fan read the team news out before kick-off, another one of our pre-match activities taking place this season.

If you want to or know someone who would like to do this at a future game make sure to contact

We will be continuing to do experiences such as ones like the above throughout the whole of the 2019/20 campaign at Roots Hall, so if you know someone in mind who you think is deserving of a bit of behind the scenes access and wants to come and meet their favourite player pre-game or celebrate a birthday in a way that they or you will never forget, please contact
