Dublin Bus and Bohemian Football Club Join Forces to Launch Iconic New Jersey.

On Tuesday, June 14, two legends of the Capital, Dublin Bus and Bohemian Football Club, join forces to launch a new jersey with a twist. For the 2022 season, Bohemian F.C. has taken inspiration from Dublin Bus’ iconic seat fabric design to create a unique 2022 FAI Cup Kit.

Bohs Jersey

The new kit, featuring the multi-coloured retro-style pattern of Dublin Bus seats, was launched this morning at the Phoenix Park, not far from the spot where Ireland’s oldest football club was originally founded back in 1890. Over 125 years later in August 1998, the country’s largest public transport provider began featuring the pattern, designed by Ardee Coaches Trim, across its fleet which has since carried Dubliners on millions of journeys to and from school, college, work, nights out with friends, football games with fellow fans and much more.

Speaking about the launch of the new kit, Dublin Bus CEO, Ray Coyne said: “As a lifelong football fan and regular attendee to the terraces of Dalymount Park with my family, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this announcement here today. Dublin Bus has been a strong supporter of Dublin’s Originals for many years. Not only do its players keep us entertained week in week out on the pitch, it is a club which is at the heart of its community, just as Dublin Bus is.”

The Dublin Bus inspired 2022 FAI Cup Kit costs €70 for the adult jersey and from €35 for the kids jersey and will be available to order from here, with 10% of all sales donated to charity partners LGBT Ireland and ShoutOut. 

Daniel Lambert, Chief Operating Officer at Bohemian Football Club, added: “We are delighted to unveil this FAI Cup jersey today in conjunction with club partner Dublin Bus and featuring main club partner Des Kelly. All three bodies are Dublin institutions and the iconic seat design that adorns buses across the city is part of the fabric of many people's lives as they move through the capital. We are also delighted to be able to support both ShoutOut and LGBT Ireland in this Pride month, as we continue to work tirelessly to improve the experiences of the LGBTQ+ community in football and sport generally.”

The oldest club in the League of Ireland, Bohemian F.C. is a much-loved institution in Irish football with its home stadium, Dalymount Park, playing host to world class footballers including Pele and Zidane, along with musician Bob Marley famously playing his last outdoor gig there. Dublin Bus has been proud partners of the People’s Club since 2020.
