Ed Sheeran to celebrate with Ipswich Town players

Ed Sheeran is planning to celebrate Ipswich’s promotion to the Premier League by going on a night out with the players.

The Suffolk-born popstar, who sponsors the club's shirts, filmed himself getting up early in Miami, USA, to join in with the Tractor Boys' celebrations.

The club was promoted to the top league after winning 2-0 against Huddersfield during Saturday's home game at Portman Road.

In a call to the players, Sheeran can be heard inviting them for a celebratory shindig when he returns to the UK on Wednesday.

He joked that a need to earn the money to pay for his sponsorship was keeping him away until then.

“Back to back promotions for @ipswichtown. Very emotional," Sheeran wrote on Instagram.

“It wasn’t that long ago I was sat at Portman Road watching them lose in League One with 11k people watching. This is huge for the club, huge for the town, and huge for football, showing anything can happen with belief and passion.

“Congrats to all the players, people at the club, and of course super Kieran. Sorry I can’t be there to celebrate but we don’t want another betting company as the sponsor next season eh. Uppa town. Emotional. See you in the Prem.”

Ipswich are back in the topflight for the first time since 2002.
