Top 10 opening game attendances at Portman Road since 1938
at 00:45 30 Jul 2022

Record opening attendance this century is 27,374. Hoping the game against Bolton will overtake this

1) 30,154 (1977) - Arsenal (won 1-0 Geddis)
2) 29,544 (1972) - Norwich (Lost 1-2 Hamilton)
3) 28,490 (1976) - Tottenham (Won 3-1 Bertschin, Lambert 2)
4) 28,114 (1978) - Liverpool (Lost 0-3)
5) 27,680 (1975) - Newcastle (Lost 0-3)
6) 27,374 (2002) - Leicester City (Won 6-1 Holland(2) Counago (2) Ambrose George)
7) 27,371 (1979) - Nottingham Forest (Lost 0-1)
8) 26,185 (1983) - Tottenham (Won 3-1 Gates (2) Mariner)
9) 25,840 (1968) - Wolves (Won 1-0 O'Rourke)
T) 25,413 (2006) - Crystal Palace (Lost 1-3 Forster)

Lowest opening attendances
8.937 (1991) - Port Vale (Won 2-1 Kiwoyma, Thompson)
9,767 (1996) - Reading (Won 5-2 Vaughan(2) Scowcroft, Tarrico, Sedgley)

Edit - Thought I post the goals from the game against Spurs in 1976 that is number three on the list.


& the goals from the lowest attended opening game of the season from 1991 where 8,937 turned up.

I quite enjoyed this game from the past so thought I share
at 23:22 20 May 2022

Where we hammered Spurs 4-0 when the Portman Road Stand was under construction on both sides to expand it.

The first goal we scored we only had nine men on the pitch (Trying to remember another time we done that)
A peach of a header from Beattie for the 2nd
A well deserved third for Lambert after having a perfectly good goal disallowed minutes before
& Osborne with his 1st goal for the club to make it four



Edit if the link does not start where it should its 31:07 in

Great to see Bobby Robson in the studio as well as a quick interview with Kevin Beattie at half time. Never seen the highlights to this game so thought I put it up for those who were at the game like myself.

Even though we lost hopefully someone spots themselves from 24 years ago when a reporter asked some Ipswich fans for their thoughts.
