Ed Sheeran has signed up to act as sponsor of his beloved Ipswich Town FC.
The Suffolk-born hitmaker, 30, a long-time fan of the club, will have his album logos adorned across the front of the shirts in a move announced on Thursday.
The League One side confirmed the deal on Thursday, after which Ed said: ‘The Football Club is a big part of the local community and this is my way of showing my support. I have always enjoyed my trips to Portman Road’.
Four-time Grammy winner Ed still lives in the area despite his massive global success, and it appears his boyhood club holds a place close to his heart.

The logo which will be seen on the front of both the men’s and women’s shirts next season compromises of +, x and ÷, which are the titles of Sheeran’s first three albums, as well as a minus sign and an equals sign.
The extra additions could allude to the prospect of new music from the star.
