Fans are reminded that an allocation of 2,500 tickets for next month's friendly away to Ipswich Town will be available for telephone sales from 9am on Thursday.

The 4 August fixture at Portman Road - when Mark Noble will potentially return to the club where he played 13 games during a three-month loan in the 2006/07 season - promises to be a key part of the club's pre-season programme. It is the last first-team away fixture before the prestigious home friendly against Villarreal on Saturday 9 August. The match kicks off at 7.45pm and as well as standard seats, there also tickets available for disabled supporters.
