Was always disappointed that David Sheepshanks and Ed couldn’t collaborate and do something. Maybe a “Sheep-Sheeran” logo.

:lol: :lol:

Joking apart, this is great news and I'll certainly be purchasing.

Thats a pretty cool logo in its own right, itd be good if it could be extended to further merch like a line of hoodies or something.

SHEEEEERRRAAAAN !!
ReusersCurtains certainly got his nuts chewed in that comments section. :lol: :lol: :lol:

So, who is it? That you DerickIpsw? :D

The only negative is the possibility of Ed songs at HT. That fking Galway Girl song really climbs up onto the man-tits.

You've never heard Galway Girl? Holy shoot, Pat. Hope you haven’t been in some sort of coma, buddy.

If we all lived much much longer lives than we do......, I wouldn't care if I didn't hear that song again until I was 847 years old. And even then i'd scream, "SIRI, STOP MUSIC!"

Nice to have someone who genuinely loves the club and willing to give us some backing, cheers Ed!

Hoping the away shirt will stay Orange in respect for him lol.

Just for you pattegimp

In Pat's camp with regards to the Bieber. Apart from that latino song that the Mrs played to absolute flippin death, I do not think I know any other Bieber stuff. Maybe heard stuff but wouldn't know its him.

Hopefully with Ed Sheeran as sponsor, the logo isn't changed to just X after a few games.

Just a thought....... (happy about sponsor etc, don’t give me the ReusersCurtains treatment) ..... but I do wonder how many older guys anywhere from 35 and over will purchase an Ipswich top with Ed Sheeran stuff on it? 🤔 Hmmm. Think I’d be giving that one a miss.

Plenty of teenagers will be going for it though. In fact it’ll no doubt be the best selling Town shirt for years.

Not sure how many followers Ed Sheehan has globally, but if just 1% of them buys a Town shirt , that’s a helluva lot of money coming into this Club marko. Which in turn increases the amount the owners can put into the transfer kitty (60% of either revenue or profit , not sure which it is tbh ) .

I don’t think Ed Sheehan’s name will be on the shirts , but suspect it will have some connection to a new tour, possibly I don’t know . But take your point about big bellied , hairy arsed guys lol :lol:

I’ll beg to differ on that. No danger would I be wearing a shirt with ➕➗➖✖️ on it. 🤦‍♂️ :shock: No way.

Back on this pop star thing. Last time “musicians” got involved with football sponsorship...... it didn’t end well.

Local singer songwriter made good sponsors his home football club is fairytale stuff not happened since Elton John did similar with Watford and look what a journey they went on. I know Ed Sheehan is only a sponsor at the moment and not an owner but I believe we’re only at the start of the journey. If his next world tour kicks off and fulfils its potential and he wears our shirt onstage our fc brand will become huge across the world.
This is absolutely brilliant news for our football club and so refreshing after our recent cheap sh*t betting ad sponsorship deals.

All we need now is some decent players fit to wear the shirt.

Nice to see a local boy made good sponsor his childhood team - much better that ME.

I hope this doesn't mean, though, that his songs will dominate pre-match and half time - because I think his music is utter crap.

Happy to buy a shirt with mathematic symbols. Favourite subject at school. Managed a B at A level. Feel deprived now that I haven't experienced Ed Sheeran's music. Will have to try harder. Next year automatic promo but will settle for winning play offs. Was at Wembley 2000, best day ever Still remember Barnsley fans clapping us as we walked away after the game. Best day ever. Worst part Town fan asking could he squeeze in to sit with his mates. Most of match squashed but worth every second

Well ... I may as well complete the set with the only colour that’ll do for a third shirt!

These concepts kits look really good. Such a shame they won’t be actually used next season.

As with most "music" in the 21st century which without question is absolute f**king garbage that's not a name would even consider listening to. Just another faceless 'singer' that appeals to a certain minority but does nothing this end. Don't care what team he roots for or how well connected the name is to this club its something you wouldn't wish for regards sponsorship agreement. Too bad we couldn't get Chicory Tip or Alvin Stardust to brand our jerseys, something you can actually listen to, but not going to make any more of it.

Just symbols though not the actual name so guess you can live with it. One of the bonuses of not being able to see the team in live action week in week out comes out of it, rise above it by saying f*ck what appears on our shirts and just get behind the new expected team from August. All about what we do on the field out there aspects such as what you got here can go by the wayside.
