Ipswich Town fans will be subject to an alcohol ban at the East Anglian derby next month.

They will also be subject to new security measures in regard to ticket sales.

Ipswich Town said the security measures include:

• One ticket per customer number

City's chief operating officer Ben Kensell said: 'We can confirm we will not be selling alcohol in the away concourse area for our game against Ipswich Town at Carrow Road on Sunday, February 10. This decision has been taken after full consultation with the Police and Ipswich Town and follows significant criminal damage and intimidation to kiosk staff working in the area at the corresponding fixture last year.

'It is of paramount importance to us that fans of both clubs can enjoy the latest East Anglian derby safely and we hope the match will be a credit to both clubs in this regard.'
