The first Old Farm derby of the 2016/17 Championship season will take place at Portman Road on Saturday, August 20.
Norwich City will travel to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town on Saturday, August 20 with the home fixture on Saturday, February 25.
The Canaries have fared better in the more recent clashes between the two sides, most notably the play-off semi-final win in 2015, the 4-1 victory at Carrow Road in 2010 and the 5-1 demolition at Portman Road in 2011.
As well as the clash between the two East Anglian rivals, Norwich City fans can also look forward to trips to St James' Park on Wednesday, September 28 and Villa Park on Saturday, April 1 to take on fellow relegated Premier League sides Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
All three teams have been tipped as favourites to return to the top flight and Norwich City fans will be hoping for similar results at Carrow Road against both sides following last season's 2-0 win over Aston Villa and the dramatic 3-2 win over the Magpies.
