Ipswich Town v Hull City (re-arranged).

Ipswich Town have a re-arranged match tonight versus Hull City (which was postponed from Sat 3rd March), and they have decided to re-use the original programme + an 8 page updated insert.

What are your views on this and have Ipswich Town got it right tonight ?

I understand that the cost of producing a programme for any match must immense and is clearly the over-riding factor in their decision.

Other Championship clubs also have re-arranged matches tonight, so I wonder if they are following a similiar theme or issuing a brand new programme ?

I look forward to your views/comments.

8 pages of update is better than some. Palace often used to manage just a folded insert (one sheet, so I suppose you'd call it 4 pages) when this happened to us in the Championship

How many weeks ago was the original programme printed for? If it's 2/3 weeks then fair enough I'd say, Championship clubs run at a massive loss every year so its a fair call

yes thanks Dorking.

the original match was postponed on the Friday 2nd (one day before) the match, so I guess the programmes would have already been printed.

I think this is the only option open to ITFC, rather than scrapping the original print run and running a second batch for tonight's match.

I wasn't sure at first - but I am happier with it now.

Many Thanks.

10 days seems fair to reuse the original in my opinion.

Brentford had just a four page insert. Confused

Wolves have issued the original programme with an eight page update. Seems sensible to me.

I was at Tamworth v Darlington last night. Tamworth used the programme from 3 March, with no insert, but only charged £1 for it instead of the cover price of £2.50
