Young Ipswich Town fans will get the chance to see the Blues in action thanks to free ticket giveaway for Suffolk schoolchildren.
The club plans to select a "School of the Day" for home games in the 2019/20 campaign, when the team plans to bounce back from League One after relegation last season.
The winning school will receive 100 adult and junior tickets, meaning parents can attend Portman Road with their children.
The lucky schools will be selected by the club, with invites currently being sent out to teachers ahead of the first match under the promotion on Saturday, September 14, when Town play Doncaster Rovers.
Last season Cole Skuse, Trevoh Chalobah and club mascot Crazee visited schools to distribute tickets to pupils.
