Bohemian FC unveils away jersey inspired by Bob Marley

Bohemian Football Club has revealed a collaboration with the Bob Marley family and Bravado for its 2022 away jersey.

100% fan owned, Ireland’s oldest football club is paying tribute to the star’s last ever outdoor concert, which took place in the club’s stadium, Dalymount Park, on 6 July 1980.

The one-off jersey pays homage to ‘An Afternoon in the Park’ in its design, featuring red, yellow and green details on the front, as well as the rear neck and sleeve trims, and an embroidered hem tag of the original concert ticket on the lower front.

10% of the profits from the shirt will be used by Bohemian Football Club to purchase musical instruments and football equipment to provide to people in Asylum Centres across Ireland. This will be done in conjunction with club partners, Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland.

“It brings me enormous joy to unveil this jersey today following years of work on the idea,” commented Daniel Lambert, coo at Bohemian FC. “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.”
