Ipswich Town have confirmed the FA Cup clash with Sheffield United will kick off at 3pm on Saturday, January 6.

The Blues and Blades was the first tie to be pulled out of the hat during Monday’s third round draw and, after it was not selected for television coverage, the game has been confirmed as a 3pm kick-off.

Adult tickets will be just £10 with seniors and under 23s priced at £5 with under 19s just £2.

The club will not be opening the upper tiers of the Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey stands (including disabled areas) and blocks O, P, Q and R of the Co-op stand will also be closed for the match.

Season ticket holders in the closed areas will be given priority on buying a seat elsewhere in the stadium. The Cobbold Stand season ticket holders are unaffected.
