Ipswich Town will play its Championship opener of the 2011/12 season this Saturday.
ITFC will meet Bristol City at Ashton Gate followed by the Carling Cup tie with Northampton at Portman Road next Tuesday.
Manager Paul Jewell expects a tough season ahead following the opening game on 6 August.
“It just proves what a tough league this is. I know it’s a cliché but every manager in this league will tell you that every game in this division is tough,” he told the ITFC website.
ITFC has recently signed Aaron Cresswell on a three-year contract after arriving as a free agent from Tranmere. Cresswell joins earlier signings Lee Bowyer and Michael Chopra.
Chopra said he is confident he can end the club’s seven-year wait for a 20-goal striker.
Shefki Kuqi was the last player to score 20 goals in the 2004/05 season.
ITFC is a marcus evans company.
