Ipswich Town announce Ed Sheeran as shirt sponsor for next season

Ipswich announce Ed Sheeran as shirt sponsor for next season
The singer's logo will appear on the Tractor Boys kit next term.

Four-time Grammy winner Ed Sheeran will be Ipswich's shirt sponsor for the 2021/22 campaign.

The 30-year-old, who grew up in Suffolk, will be hoping that his boyhood club become the 'A Team' after agreeing a deal which will see his logo appear on the men's and women's first-team shirts next season.

The logo compromises of +, x and %, which are the titles of Sheeran's first three albums – as well as -, = and the word tour.

The global popstar, who has had four UK number one albums and also enjoyed acting roles in Hollywood films, hopes it can be a 'Perfect' collaboration with the League One club.

"The Football Club is a big part of the local community and this is my way of showing my support," Sheeran said on the club's official website.

"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. Hopefully we can stop being sloightly on the huh!"

Sheeran, who says the meaning behind the logo on the shirt will be revealed soon, joins an elite list of musical artists who have sponsored football teams, including Wet Wet Wet, Def Leppard and the Super Furry Animals.

Ipswich are set for a third season in League One after a disappointing campaign, but were recently taken over by an American consortium.
