Penn Commercial is the new player sponsor of Ipswich Town Football Club defender Axel Tuanzebe

Penn Commercial is delighted to be sponsoring Ipswich Town Football Club defender Axel Tuanzebe, who signed for the EFL Championship team in early September 2023, on an initial 12-month contract.  

Axel started and played the full 90 minutes for the win at Watford on Tuesday 12th December. He has admitted that the prospect of promotion is in the back of his mind, as the Blues went top of the Championship, with the 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road.

Axel says that such victories — Town’s fourth in succession and seventh on the road in 2023/24 — are what is required to get to where they want to get to come the end of the season:

“It's one of those wins where, if you spread out the season, it's one that you definitely need to win to be fighting for promotion,” he said. “It is on the back of our minds, but we’re focusing game by game. Everyone’s on board and everyone’s enjoying the mission. We’re a bunch of humble lads that are just giving their best every time they get selected to play for Ipswich.”

Vanessa Penn, Managing Director of Penn Commercial, added:

“It has been a great year for Penn and ITFC in 2023, and we are proud to be sponsoring Axel. Being a season ticket holder at Portman Road for so many years, I am always excited to be able to support our local club, and we are optimistic for the Blues prospects next year.”

Penn has also been a previous sponsor of ITFC goalkeeper, Nick Hayes.
