During the 1993–94 English football season, Ipswich Town F.C. competed in the FA Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Ipswich Town looked to improve on their 16th place finish of the previous campaign. Their initial form was promising, and in November they held Manchester United to a goalless draw at Old Trafford. But, as had happened a season earlier, their late season form took a dramatic slump and they found themselves in a relegation battle.

Ipswich's survival was secured on the final day of the season after fellow strugglers Sheffield United were beaten by Chelsea and Oldham Athletic failed to beat Norwich City.

Kit[edit]

Ipswich Town's kit was manufactured by English company Umbro and sponsored by Ipswich-based chemical manufacturer Fisons.
