Ipswich Town will start their 2022/23 League One season with a home game against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, July 30.

Kieran McKenna's men then travel to newly-promoted Forest Green Rovers, followed by games against MK Dons (h), Burton (a), Shrewsbury (a) and recently-relegated Barnsley (h).

The third-tier will not pause for the World Cup in Qatar this November/December. None of Ipswich's matches clash with England's group games against Iran (Nov 21), USA (Nov 25) and Wales (Nov 29), though there is potential that the home clash with Fleetwood on Saturday, December 3 could come on the same day/time as England playing in the first knockout round.

Ipswich will also play on the same day as a World Cup quarter-final (Peterborough at home) and, potentially, will be in Papa Johns Trophy action on the day of a World Cup semi-final.

The Blues have a home Boxing Day fixture (Oxford United), then have away trips to Portsmouth (Dec 29) and Lincoln (Jan 1) over the festive period.

Over the Easter weekend, Town will host Wycombe and then travel to Cheltenham.

All four fixtures against newly-promoted duo Bristol Rovers and Port Vale come on Tuesday nights, as does the away trip to Burton.
