Ed Sheeran’s an era-defining artist who has netted an array of accolades across his recorded music and live performances. He even holds the official record for the most-attended tour of all-time.
More than this he is a favourite son of Suffolk in the east of England and an Ipswich Town fan. And now he’s the new shirt sponsor of the football club’s men’s and women’s first-teams.
Ed says, “The Club is a big part of the community and this is my way of showing my support.”
The music icon, who ended his Divide tour in his hometown in front of 160,000 people over four nights in August 2019, has agreed an initial one-year deal with Blues, otherwise known as the Tractor Boys.
Ed continues, “I have always enjoyed my trips to Portman Road and I’m looking forward to going back there as soon as supporters are allowed into stadiums again.
“With the new owners from the US coming in, there are sure to be exciting times ahead for Ipswich fans, including myself.”
The 2021/22 football season will start in August, but you don’t need to wait that long to hear Ed. Tune in to our dedicated radio station right now!
