Ed wore the red, white and black scarf, which bears the same colours as those worn by the St Kilda Saints, seemingly showing his support for the team.

The singer paired it with a simple black t-shirt, which showed off his extensive tattoos, and a pair of blue jeans.

Sue, dressed in a beige blouse and her Mushroom Records scarf, chatted with Ed throughout the game, at times seemingly talking him through the rules of Australian football as he gazed out at the field.

The Shape Of You hitmaker also mingled with other guests in the private area, while enjoying a drink.

The day prior, Ed had also attended the football, that time with his wife, Cherry Seaborn, 28.

The couple after arrived in Australia along with their daughter Lyra Antarctica earlier this month.

It comes after Ed and his young family were reportedly close to being caught up in the flood emergency in NSW this week, shortly before his moving performance at Michael Gudinski’s state memorial.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald‘s Private Sydney, the couple and their seven-month-old daughter were staying in the Hawkesbury region of Sydney for two weeks of mandatory quarantine, when disaster struck.

The publications reported that the Ed ‘made a narrow escape from rising floodwaters’ in the area.

They said on Tuesday that the family left the property – that even had its own lake – on the ‘last road’ out of town that was not shut because of the flood waters.

It was also where the A-Team hitmaker wrote the song Visiting Hours – a detail he later revealed before performing it at Michael Gudinski’s memorial service.

Ed gave an emotional performance at Gudinski’s state memorial at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena earlier this week, revealing on stage that he was ‘very nervous’.

He sang his hit single Castle on the Hill – one of late music mogul’s favourites – and later broke down in tears as he performed a new song, Visiting Hours, which is about his daughter Lyra.

He also shared the stage with Kylie Minogue – whose music career was launched by Michael – to do a duet of her songs All The Lovers and The Loco-motion.
