Ed Sheeran replaces Marcus Evans Group as the club shirt sponsor

Ed Sheeran replaces Carers Trust (a charity) as the shirt sponsor. The club had been sponsored by the Marcus Evans Group for many years before. Marcus Evans was the former chairman and owner of Ipswich Town F.C., which he bought in December 2007. He sold the club to a new U.S. consortium in April 2021.

“The Football Club is a big part of the local community and this is my way of showing my support,” said Ed. 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!”

Town’s director of sales, Rosie Richardson, said: “We are obviously thrilled that Ed has agreed to become our shirt sponsor next season.

I have worked with Ed and his management team on various initiatives over the years and welcomed Ed and his guests to Portman Road for many games. He has shown his support for his hometown in lots of ways and this is another example of that."
