Ipswich Town have announced via their website that they will be taking on Essex rivals Colchester Utd in two 75 minute behind closed doors friendlies on the 18th August.
The Blues pre-season schedule is starting to take shape with a friendly with Tottenham already being confirmed.
The three games are all behind closed doors and not open to the general public.
However, former Town midfielder David Gregory will be commentating on the two Colchester Utd games as the Essex club provides a streaming service available to both fans.
The price for this will be £5 for each game.
