Bohemian Football Club (Bohemian FC), in collaboration with the Bob Marley family and Bravado, Universal Music Group’s leading global merchandise division, has announced the release of the Irish club’s 2022 away jersey.
Ireland’s oldest football club, Bohemian FC, pays tribute to Marley’s last outdoor concert, which took place in the club’s stadium, Dalymount Park, on July 6, 1980. The one-off jersey pays homage to “An Afternoon in the Park,” the Marley Dalymount concert, in its design.
"It brings me enormous joy to unveil this jersey today, following years of work on the idea,” says Daniel Lambert, chief operating officer, 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.”
Ten percent of profits from the shirt will be used by Bohemian FC to purchase musical instruments and football equipment to provide to people in Asylum Centers across Ireland in conjunction with club partners, Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland (MASI).
“I think this is a brilliant thing in terms of the memories of the day, the first major worldwide star to play an open-air gig in Ireland,” says Pat Egan, concert promoter and booker. “It will be an iconic shirt and help keep the Marley legend alive and well on our island. The day itself, to see him on stage in the stadium, with the huge church steeple in the background, was out of this world.”
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 – the exclusive shirt is available for pre-order now at Marley-bohemianfc.com.
