Birkbeck MSc Students Spend the Day with Ipswich Town

Birkbeck MSc Students Spend the Day with Ipswich Town

A member of Ipswich Town’s ground staff talks a group of Birkbeck’s MSc students through the challenges of maintaining a good playing surface.

A group of students from our MSc programme recently spent a hugely rewarding day at Ipswich Town FC discussing how the club operates and how it manages its commercial activities. In a trip organised by Tim Edwards, one of our current MSc students, staff from the Tractor Boys introduced the group to a variety of club officials ranging from those involved in the marketing department through to ground staff responsible for the maintenance of the playing surface. The visit marked a further development in relations between the club and the Birkbeck Sport Business Centre, following Roger Finbow’s (an Ipswich Town non-executive director) recent presentation to our students and staff, and to people working in football.

Information about Roger Finbow’s presentation can be found here.
