ED SHEERAN helped promote Ipswich’s new home and away kit in a stunning social media video.
Earlier this month the 31-year-old singer, whose net worth is estimated at around £147million, announced he will continue as shirt sponsor of the Tractor Boys for another year.
He became a sponsor of his beloved home club last year, putting his math tour logo on the front of both men’s and women’s shirts.
His influence resulted in the highest home kit sales for the club in 15 years.
As a result, he was given an honorary position in the squad after receiving the No. 17 jersey.
This year, Sheeran has again helped promote the jerseys, but this time in a huge social media promotional video that includes a cameo appearance from heavyweight boxer Fabio Wardley.
Wardley, who is also a passionate Ipswich fan, narrates the video while Sheeran models the new strip at the end.
The home shirt pays homage to the shirt worn by the Ipswich-based team that took part in the inaugural Premier League season 30 years ago.
The main body includes a triangular design based on the iconic Cobbold Stand on Portman Road.
It also has a hidden message inside the collar that reads “Run towards adversity” – a motto introduced when new American owners took over the club last year.

The red away kit celebrates the club’s recent reunion with Umbro, inspired by the 1995 kit.
Sheeran took to Instagram to share some pictures of the new kit with a comment that read, “New Ipswich Town kit for the Suffolk in all of us sponsored by your boy see you next season x.”
