During the 1992–93 English football season, Ipswich Town competed in the inaugural season of the Premier League, following promotion from the First Division the previous season.

Season summary[edit]

In the 1992–93 season, Ipswich had a great start to the campaign and by January 1993, were in fourth place in the league and fans were hoping for at least a UEFA Cup place, maybe even the Premiership title, but a dip in form during the final weeks of the season saw the club finish 16th.[1]
