Bohs Will Have Bob Marley-Themed Away Jersey For 2022

Bohs have announced that their away jersey for the 2022 season will feature an image of Bob Marley.

The Dublin club has created the jersey in collaboration with the Jamaican musician's family. It pays tribute to Marley's last ever outdoor concert, which took place at Dalymount Park on July 6th, 1980.

The club say that 10 per cent of the profits from the jersey will be used "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’ (MASI)".

In 2018, Bohs were forced to make a U-turn on plans to a release a jersey featuring Marley for the 2019 season as they did not have the rights to use his image. The club said they had "acted in good faith and followed the correct process when purchasing the licence for this image via a world-leading third-party photo licensing company. However, the Bob Marley representative agency has informed us that this company did not have the right to grant any such licence for this image".

"It brings me enormous joy to unveil this jersey today following years of work on the idea," said Bohs COO Daniel Lambert.

"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."
