Sheeran Extends Shirt Sponsorship
Thursday, 9th Jun 2022 10:37

Framlingham-based pop star Ed Sheeran will continue his sponsorship of the Blues’ men’s and women’s first teams during 2022/23.

Lifelong Town supporter Sheeran began his sponsorship last summer and his Mathematics Tourlogo which appeared on last season’s home and away shirts again set to feature during the campaign ahead.

The Blues sold more home shirts last season than in any of the previous 15 seasons, doubling the 2020/21 figure.

Sheeran, who has had 13 UK number ones, told the club site: “I am delighted to be sponsoring Ipswich Town for another season.

“The club and the local community mean a lot to me and I always try to get back to Portman Road whenever I’m back in Suffolk. See you next season.”

Blues CEO Mark Ashton added: “It is fantastic that Ed has agreed to continue his sponsorship of the first-team shirts.

“Ed is a passionate fan of the club and the community of Suffolk. We will continue to work with him and his team to build what is already a strong and exciting relationship.

“We are grateful for his continued support, and we look forward to welcoming him to Portman Road again soon.”

Rosie Richardson, Town’s director of sales, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Ed has agreed to continue sponsoring the home and away shirts next season.

“We are excited to see what the future holds, and we are thrilled to continue the collaboration.”

Last summer Sheeran revealed that he received a Portman Road executive box as part of the deal, while he was also given a player tracksuit featuring his initials and number of shirts. The 31-year-old was handed squad number 17 for 2021/22.

Prior to that, in 2019, Town shirts with Sheeran’s Divide logo were on sale during his series of Chantry Park concerts.

Town are set to announce their new kits next week, the deal with long-running supplier adidas having ended this month.

Excellent News, Thank you Ed!

Marcus added 11:10 - Jun 9
Was obvious the sponsor needed to be confirmed before the new kit was announced. Also seems the wait is also because the current Adidas contract has to expire first.

Great to have Ed on board again

Delays more then likely caused by supply issues from China
Container ships spending weeks anchored at sea awaiting slots with Town kit and my bleeding furniture in them!

And strangely, during the rob brydon, David Mitchell, Lee mack show at the regent last night, the answer to the question, put to the audience via email prior to show, "who is the person linked to ipswich( the town that is), who ud prefer not to be", Ed Sheeran was the 1st choice. (Marcus Evans, Steven Wright not even in the top 3).
But yes, good news for the club.

Great news. Really hope this continues for a number of years and evolves into Ed taking a place on the board.

Nice one Ed !

Westy added 13:43 - Jun 9
Got to be good for the Club. I wonder if Ed will share a Box with Robbie Williams when we play newly promoted Port Vale (a Port Vale fan).

superblues9 added 14:16 - Jun 9
Is it being made by Umbro ? Going on the rumour mills can’t see anything concrete though ?

Bluefish11 added 14:19 - Jun 9
News articles like this make it so easy to identify the 'fake fans'. If you offered them a free box for the season with a £1,000,000 welcome bonus, they would still moan that it wasn't £2,000,000.

Many thanks to Ed Sheeran, top bloke! Others, long may you wollow in your pity and the loneliness of getting off by trying to accrue the most thumbs down.

WWF, it was a joke, do Admiral even exist now?

wewerefamous added 15:04 - Jun 9
Probably not IpswichT62, I remember Admiral footy shirts as a kid, it was like wearing a crisp packet! 😁
