This is definitely a collector’s item!
Bob Marley is to feature on a League of Ireland Premier Division side’s jersey from next season.
Bohemian FC has announced its 2019 away shirt will include an image of the reggae legend.
It’s a nod to the club’s home ground, Dalymount Park, which Bob Marley played in 1980.
We are delighted to reveal our 2019 away jersey.
Designed by #Bohs in conjunction with our new kit suppliers O’Neills, it gives a nod to Dalymount’s special place in the hearts of football and music fans.

Bohs wanted to pay tribute to the stadium’s unique role in the cultural history of Ireland, both sporting and musically.
Dalymount Park was graced by Thin Lizzy and the Boomtown Rats in the 1970s, by Bob Marley, Meatloaf and Black Sabbath in the 1980s, and by Faith No More, Sonic Youth, Ice Cube and Red Hot Chili Peppers in the 1990s.
A limited supply of the shirts can be pre-ordered on Bohs’ website.
