Ipswich Town have confirmed that both of their East Anglian derby matches with Norwich City have been moved to Sunday lunchtimes.

The Blues will now host the Canaries at Portman Road on Sunday, September 2, with the reverse fixture at Carrow Road taking place Sunday, February 10 – both will kick-off at 12pm.

News as to whether the game at Portman Road will be shown live on Sky Sports will be communicated by the broadcaster by July 27, though that’s likely to be the case given the last eight meetings between the sides have been on TV.

Five of those aforementioned eight games have been played on a Sunday, while seven of them have kicked off at 12pm or 12.15pm (the other at 2.05pm).
