After years of following their side battling for points down in League One, Ipswich Town have shown how quickly things can change in football.

From watching their side secure promotion to the Championship last term, to competing for a shot at playing Premier League football next season, it really has been a whirlwind ride for Ipswich supporters in the last year.

The Dark Days Of League One

Ipswich Town fans are certainly not alone when it comes to supporters of a former Premier League club watching their side in the third tier of English football. The East Anglia outfit, who are 10/3 in the Championship betting to win the title this season, spent four years down in League One before promotion last term. Ipswich, who are 1/3 in the Championship promotion odds, turned a corner when manager Kiernan McKenna took charge in 2021. The former Manchester United academy coach has brought about significant change at Portman Road and brought smiles back to the faces of Ipswich fans who had been through it since relegation from the Premier League in 2001.

Ipswich have always had a strong and loyal fanbase, which has even branched out to other countries. Norway is one of the nations where people have taken Ipswich to their hearts, with a group of passionate supporters who travel across the North Sea to follow their side. Since McKenna took over from Paul Cook at Portman Road, the relatively inexperienced manager has clearly been earning the admiration of Ipswich fans both home and abroad.

Best Might Yet Be To Come

Playing an attacking brand of passing football, fans have been flocking back to Portman Road to see a side that are on the up. Battling for what would be astonishing back-to-back promotions, McKenna’s efforts have already seen him earn the honour of being awarded the Championship Manager of the Season. Considering the club had only just returned to the second tier, McKenna was fully deserving of the accolade and the fact he won it should fill Ipswich supporters with great pride.

From a team battling at the top end of the First Division in the 70s and 80s, to one that sunk to an 11th-place finish in League One for the 2021/22 campaign, Ipswich are a side back on the up. With a capacity of just under 30,000, Portman Road is a traditional stadium that has been bouncing in recent months. With a team that have pulled off some great comebacks in the Championship this season with late flurries of goals, fans of the club have been treated to some moments that will certainly live long in the memory. While the side have been punching above their weight against the clubs that came down from the Premier League last season, McKenna and his team will be doing all they can to finish the job a secure promotion.

There have been some days for Ipswich fans over recent years but with smiles back on faces and Portman Road rocking again, there’s plenty of momentum building that could see this famous club back in the big time.
