During the 2003–04 English football season, Ipswich Town F.C. competed in the FA Premier League.
Ipswich Town, in their second consecutive season in English football's second tier, finished the campaign in fifth place. Having scored 84 goals, Town could have finished higher had it not been for their poor defensive record: with 72 goals conceded, Town had the third worst defensive record in the whole division, and the worst of the top 18 teams. Town won the first leg of their play-off, against fourth-placed West Ham United, with a goal from teenage striker Darren Bent (who scored 17 goals in the league alone), but lost the second leg 2-0, condemning Town to another season in the new Championship.
