The Blues go green...

Project ambassador and club skipper, Jason de Vos with chairman, David Sheepshanks.

Ipswich Town Football Club has started an initiative to make itself the first ever carbon neutral football club.

With the support of main sponsor E.ON, the Defra Climate Challenge Fund, and CRed, the 'Save your energy for the Blues' carbon reduction programme aims to help tackle the issue of climate change. The season long initiative is the first project of its kind anywhere in the UK.

The scheme also aims to help the club, Ipswich Town fans and the wider Suffolk Community understand and tackle climate change through informing, challenging and changing people's attitudes.

I think this is a great scheme. Whilst people's political, emotional and even religious persuasions can change, your football club is for life. When a politician talks about green issues, no one really listens. I really hope though that this will make even the most apolitical of people stand up and take note. I hope that this scheme is the first of many, and I'm proud that the Tractor Boys are leading the field for once!
