British singer Ed Sheeran is your new shirt sponsor for third-division soccer team Ipswich
IPSWICH, England -- Language singer Ed Sheeran is your new shirt sponsor for third-division soccer club Ipswich.
The longtime Ipswich enthusiast, known for songs such as"Form You" and"Perfect," signed a one-year deal Thursday to sponsor the men's and women's tops next season.
"The soccer club is a significant part of the local community and that is my way of showing my support," said the 30-year-old musician, that grew up in the region. "I have always enjoyed my trips to Portman Road and I'm looking forward to heading back there as soon as supporters are allowed into stadiums again."
Ipswich is in the middle of the standings at League One with two games remaining, although the women's team plays in the fourth division.
An American consortium recently purchased the club and has vowed to spend in order to earn promotion to the second division.
"Together with the new owners from the U.S. coming , there are sure to be exciting times ahead for Ipswich fans, including myself," Sheeran said.
The new logo features mathematical symbols and the word"TOUR." His albums use mathematical symbols as names.
England captain Harry Kane is your shirt sponsor of fourth-division club Leyton Orient, his former club. The tops carry messages thanks to frontline employees battling the coronavirus pandemic. The Tottenham striker declared Thursday that Leyton Orient's house shirt next season will honor a charity to get the country's military veterans.
