An image of reggae legend Bob Marley will grace the new jersey of a popular Irish football club.

Dublin-based Bohemian FC unveiled its 2019 away kit – a white jersey with an image of Marley’s face emblazoned across the front – on Tuesday to mostly positive reviews.

The club said it made the move to celebrate the 38th anniversary of the Jamaican reggae icon’s performance at its stadium.

“This jersey, designed by Bohemian FC in conjunction with our new kit supplier O’Neills, gives a nod to that history – and to the stadium’s special place in the hearts of both football and music fans,” the club said on its website.

The kit also features the Rastafarian red, green and gold stripes on the left side and on the sleeves of the shirt.

Marley is among a number of musicians who have played at Bohemian FC’s Dalymount Park grounds. Other performers include Black Sabbath, Faith no More and Ice Cube.

The jerseys are available for pre-order at a cost of 52 pounds for adults  and 43 pounds for children.
