Ed Sheeran Fan

The singer-songwriter was born in West Yorkshire but moved to Suffolk as a four year-old and has become a big follower of the Tractor Boys, even sponsoring the club's shirts in the 2021-22 season. In return, the club name him in their squad list and gave him the number 17 shirt.

Nigel Havers Part-time Fan

One would almost expect that an actor who has seemingly spent his entire career playing quintessential, old-school English gentlemen would be more into rugger or cricket, but apparently Nigel Havers got a love for Ipswich Town whilst living in the area.

Keith Deller Fan

Born and bred in Ipswich, the former World Darts Champion has always followed the team.

Griff Rhys Jones Part-time Fan

Despite hailing from South Wales, comedian Griff Rhys Jones apparently got a taste for Ipswich Town after living between homes in London and Suffolk.

Will Ferrell Dual-club Fan

Back in 2012 the American was asked if he was a football fan. His reply, "I like football. My club is Ipswich. Or Aston Villa." It might not be the most convicing backing of a team, but to be fair Ferrell is actually a big football fan and bought a stake in Los Angeles FC in 2016.

Karen Pickering Part-time Fan

The former world champion swimmer was a member of the Ipswich Swimming Club. Since retiring from competitive swimming in 2005 she became a sports ambassador for Suffolk and has apparently been spotted cheering Ipswich on a number of times at Portman Road.
