Sheeran, 30, will be the shirt sponsor for next season Tractor Boys, his favorite club. On the chest of players, a successful artist will announce a future tour.
The meaning of the logo already revealed to the shirt will remain a secret for a while. We’ll reveal that later.
Sheeran grew up in Ipswich, eastern England, and is still deeply involved in the region. In 2019 he concluded his Divide tour in the city. As many as 160,000 attended concerts at that time.
“This club plays a big role in the local community and I want to show my support that way,” Sheeran said. “I’ve always enjoyed the trips to Portman Street and can’t wait to be back on the field.”
Rosie Richardson, Commercial Director of the Partnership on behalf of Ipswich Town is proud, “I’ve worked with Ed and his management on many initiatives and have welcomed him and his guests to Portman Street many times. He’s always there for his hometown and that’s another example of his loyalty. We hope to see Ed – Just like any other supporter – soon again. “
Ipswich Town won in 1981 at the expense of the UEFA Cup. The club now plays in the first league, the third English tier, and is ranked ninth. Former well-known Dutch players at the club are Arnold Mohren, Bobby Pitta, Martin Reuser and Gianni Zuverlon.
