The decision was taken on Friday morning, with further heavy snow and freezing temperatures forecast for the Ipswich area overnight and into tomorrow. Although the Portman Road pitch would likely have been playable come 3pm on Saturday, the surrounding access routes are deemed to be unsafe for those attending the game.
The match will now be rescheduled in due course. Tickets bought in advance will still be valid for the new date. Should supporters wish to claim a refund, details will be released in due course.
