Ipswich Witches will begin their speedway season at Foxhall Stadium at the start of April this year.
The first home fixture of the season is against King's Lynn on April 2 in the Supporters Cup.
Ipswich's first meeting is a week earlier at Peterborough also in the Supporters Cup.
Ipswich will face the Panthers, King's Lynn and defending champions Swindon in their Supporters Cup group as teams race each other home and away with the winner of the group progressing to the final.
After the cup action gets the season started, the Witches begin their Premiership campaign against top-flight newcomers Sheffield as three-times world champion Nicki Pedersen and his Tigers visit Foxhall in April followed by a local derby away at King's Lynn.
In May, Ipswich take on the Panthers home and away as they also welcome Wolverhampton and former Witch Rory Schlein to Suffolk. The month finishes with a first trip of the season to Owlerton to face Sheffield in the 'Tru Plant derby'.
The Premiership season picks up the pace in June with the fixtures coming thick and fast as the Witches take on champions Swindon home and away who have 2017 world champion Jason Doyle in their ranks again in 2020. There is another East Anglian derby at Foxhall against the Stars before the month ends with fixtures against Belle Vue.
Ritchie Hawkins' side face Wolves in July before the season reaches crunch time in August with more local derbies against King's Lynn and away trips to Wolves, Sheffield and Swindon.
The Witches race their final home league tie against Swindon in September before ending the regular season with a trip to the National Speedway Stadium to face the Aces, hoping to secure their place in the end of season play-offs once again.
