Ipswich Town will play in the third tier of English football for the first time in 62 years next season – and they don’t have long to wait before discovering who they’ll play and when as they try to bounce back up to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Town players and staff are currently off on their summer holidays before returning to training on Monday, June 24, followed by a pre-season trip to Germany at the start of July and then a handful of warm-up games back in the UK.
