Derby date switched

Last updated : 28 October 2010

The East Anglian derby between Norwich and Ipswich at Portman Road next year has been moved from its original date of Good Friday. Extensive discussions had taken place between the two clubs, supporters and Suffolk Constabulary who had all voiced concerns over the Bank Holiday fixture. The game will now be played 24 hours earlier on Thursday April 21 with a 7.45pm kick-off. A Town statement said: "For fans of both clubs the derby games are the most important fixtures of the season. "We feel that bringing the game forward to miss the Good Friday holiday period gives supporters the best opportunity of being at Portman Road for what we are sure will be a great opportunity."
