Ipswich Town matches will be back behind closed doors under Tier 4 restrictions

Ipswich Town's home fixtures will once again be played behind closed doors after Suffolk was moved into Tier 4 Covid-19 restrictions by the government this afternoon.

Having previously been in Tier 2, Ipswich had been able to accommodate up to 2,000 supporters at Portman Road throughout parts of November and December.

However, the new guidelines will prevent fans from attending matches for the foreseeable future.

All Ipswich players and coaching staff are currently self isolating after a series of positive tests within the camp, which in turn has postponed the club's next two fixtures.

The Tractor Boys are due back in action on January 2 at Fleetwood Town, with their first home game of 2021 scheduled for January 9 against Swindon Town in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Meanwhile, the home clash with Northampton Town – due to be played on Boxing Day but called off because of Covid-19 – has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 16.
