Ipswich Town’s fixtures for the 2021/22 season have been revealed this morning, with the Blues beginning the season at home. 

First up for Paul Cook’s men is a clash with newly-promoted Morecambe at Portman Road on August 7, in a fixture which will hopefully be played in front of a large crowd following a year of games in empty stadiums. 

Town’s first away game of the season is a visit to Burton Albion a week later, before games at Cheltenham and then at home to MK Dons and AFC Wimbledon complete the August schedule. 

Relegated Championship teams Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham visit Suffolk on September 25 and November 23 respectively, while Cook’s first return to Wigan in front of fans is scheduled for December 11. 

Town are away at Gillingham on Boxing Day and at home to Lincoln on New Year’s Day, while the Easter weekend sees a Good Friday visit to Rotherham and a Monday clash with Wigan at Portman Road. 

Ipswich finish their season with a home game against Charlton Athletic on April 30. 

The Blues will discover their first-round Carabao Cup and final Papa John’s Trophy group opponents later today, with Town already known to be facing Colchester United and Gillingham.
