Asked about the rumours he was set to be affiliated with Nottingham County FC, the Lightening Bolt singer told Peter Crouch: "Yeah I have, yeah. In the month of November. It was just something that came up.
"I saw that there was an opportunity for loads of sponsors to sponsor them for a month, and I thought it would be nice to invest in the club a little bit.
The life-long Notts fan added: "And to see my name on their shirt is pretty cool..."
Meanwhile, Bugg has announced his new studio album Hearts That Strain will be released on 1 September.
