Ipswich Town will begin their League One season with a home clash against Wigan Athletic on September 12.

As well as being at home on the opening day, Paul Lambert’s men will also be at Portman Road on Boxing Day (Northampton Town) before hosting Fleetwood Town on the final day on May 8.

The Blues will take on the newly relegated Latics at Portman Road behind-closed-doors, with Rochdale also visiting Suffolk prior to the October date set out by the government for the possible return of limited numbers of supporters.

That means the first league game for which fans could be inside Portman Road would be the visit of Charlton Athletic on Saturday, October 10. In a fixture yet to be officially confirmed, Gillingham are likely to visit in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday October 6, with supporters potentially present for that game.

As things stand there are 12 scheduled Tuesday night games – five at home and seven away – with both matches against Sunderland played in midweek.

Ipswich host Bristol Rovers on Good Friday before travelling to Rochdale on Easter Monday, while Town end 2020 with a visit to AFC Wimbledon and go to Fleetwood to begin 2020.

The Blues first competitive match of the season is against Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup on Saturday, September 5.
