During the 1963–64 English football season, Ipswich Town F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

Just two seasons after being English champions, Ipswich were relegated from the First Division in last place. Although Ipswich were capable of scoring - the team found the net at least once in all but eight of the 42 First Division they played during the season - their defence was what let the team down, conceding 121 goals in 42 league games. As of 2011 this remains the highest number of goals ever conceded by Ipswich in a season.


Ipswich Town's kit was almost identical to the kit worn the previous season. Although there were no changes to the shirt, blue side panels were added to the shorts, and the socks changed from blue and white hoops to plain white with blue turnovers.[1]
