Bohemian FC Launch Bob Marley-Inspired 2022 Away Jersey

Irish side Bohemian FC has unveiled its new away kit for the 2022 season, paying tribute to Bob Marley, who played his last-ever outdoor concert in the club’s stadium, Dalymount Park, on 6 July, 1980.

If the new Bob Marley-inspired Bohemian FC away shirt is at all familiar, that’ll be because the 100 percent  fan-owned club originally tried to launch it back in 2018. Some legal issues regarding the imagery rights of the reggae star prevented that from going ahead, but now those kinks have been ironed out and the shirt has officially been released, with the full backing of all parties involved. And thank goodness, because it’s a beaut, following (or preceding?) In the footsteps of the Ajax third shirt in paying homage to the musician.

Continuing the club’s ongoing kit x music exploration that saw a collaboration with Fontaine's D.C. last season, the design here sees Marley’s image emblazoned on the front, alongside a red, yellow and green details on the front, as well as the rear neck and sleeve trims. The shirt is then given a tidy sign off in the form of an embroidered hem tag of the original concert ticket on the lower front. The club have stated that 10% of the profits from the shirt will be used to purchase musical instruments and football equipment for people in asylum centres across Ireland.

Daniel Lambert, Bohemian FC, COO said: "It brings me enormous joy to unveil this jersey today following years of work on the idea. The Marley concert at Dalymount is one of Ireland’s truly special musical events, his only ever Irish show and, sadly, his last ever outdoor one. His love of football is widely known to all, and that he played on our famous pitch before the concert, the same turf that some of the world’s best players have graced such as Pele, Best and Zidane is amazing.
