We show that every closed oriented smooth 4-manifold admits a complete singular Poisson structure in each homotopy class of maps to the 2-sphere. The rank of this structure is 2 outside a small singularity set, which consists of finitely many circles and isolated points. The Poisson bivector vanishes on the singularities, where we give its local form explicitly.
