IPSWICH TOWN   2002/03
      UEFA Cup
     
   

Three UEFA Cup places were awarded to Fair Play entrants based on 2001/02 Fair Play results. The country topping the European Fair Play League got an automatic entry and all those above a certain co-efficient went into a draw for the other two places. England won one of those two places. The top side in the Premier Division Fair Play League without a European place won that UEFA Cup spot. That was Ipswich Town who only finished fourth in the Premier Division Fair Play League and were relegated that season. They became the first club from outside the Premier Division to represent England in a European competition since the formation of the Premier Division.
