Record by location[edit]

Ipswich's record at Portman Road is peerless in European football. For 45 years, Ipswich held the record for the longest unbeaten run of games at home in European competition.[72] The team's absence from such tournaments in recent years had seen the record overtaken by AZ Alkmaar,[73] whose home undefeated run was finally broken by Everton in 2007.[74]
