Ipswich Town Football Club is an English football based in the city of Ipswich in Suffolk. They currently feature in the English Football League Championship and are the only fully professional football club in Suffolk. Ipswich have won the English first division title, the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup once each.

Ipswich Town were established in 1898 as an amateur side called Ipswich AFC. In 1888 the club merged with Ipswich Rugby Club to be founded as Ipswich Town Football Club. They joined the Southern Amateur League in 1907 and became the champions of the competition in the 1921-1922 season.

Ipswich Town turned professional in 1936 and entered the Football League on May 30,1938 and played in Division Three (South) until the 1953-1954 campaign when they were promoted to Division Two.

In the 1960-1961 Ipswich gained promotion to the English top flight and won the league in its very first season (1961-1962) under Alf Ramsey. But soon after Ramsey left the club, Ipswich spiraled down into the Second Division but recovered under (Sir) Bobby Robson when he became the club’s manager in January 1969. Ipswich became one of the top five clubs in the English first division under Robson and played regularly in the UEFA Cup, winning the second tie European club competition in 1981 and finished runners-up in the league in 1981 and 1982.

But Sir Bobby Robson left soon after and Ipswich sank into depression and into the lower divisions of English football but recovered to gain promotion to the English Premier League for the 1992-1993 season.

But Ipswich failed to hold onto their Premiership status and were relegated from the Premiership but returned and played in the UEFA Cup too. But they were relegated at the end of the 2001-2002 season from the English top flight and although they have strived to gain back promotion, they have not appeared in the Premier League since then.

Ipswich Town play their home matches at Portsman Road which can entertain a crowd of 30,311. The club is nicknamed the Blues, the Town but most commonly as the Tractor Boys.

Some of the achievements of the club include:-1 English First Division title-1 FA Cup-1 UEFA Cup
