Throughout its history, Ipswich FC has produced many talented players and had successful periods. In the 1960s and 1970s, the club was managed by Sir Bobby Robson and enjoyed its greatest success. During this time, Ipswich won the English league title in 1962 and the FA Cup in 1978, as well as reaching the final of the UEFA Cup in 1981.

However, the club has a loyal fan base and continues to compete at a high level in the English football pyramid. In 2021, Ipswich appointed Paul Cook as their new manager in the hopes of revitalizing the team's fortunes.
