AFC Ajax and adidas launch third kit inspired by Bob Marley

Dutch football team, Ajax, together with adidas, has launched a 2021/2022 third kit inspired by Bob Marley.

The kit is described as a tribute to the Ajax fans and the love shared by the club and its fans for the reggae legend and his iconic song, Three Little Birds.

The black kit features red, yellow and green details. On the back of the jersey, just below the collar, it features a subtle reference to the song, with three little birds sitting on Amsterdam’s Andreas crosses. The kit will be worn in this season’s European matches, alongside Ajax’ home kit.

The story of Ajax, Bob Marley and Three Little Birds started in August 2008, when Ajax played a friendly match against Cardiff City. The Ajax fans were asked to remain in the stands after the game. To entertain the patient fans, the stadium DJ played several tracks, one of which was Three Little Birds, with the fans instantly embracing the song.

The kit features a jersey, shorts and socks, with Amsterdam’s Andreas crosses prominently highlighted on the socks. In addition, there is also a track top, track pant, sweater, t-shirt and Samba footwear.

The deal is a tie up between AFC Ajax, adidas, the Bob Marley family and Bravado.
