The kit can be pre-ordered exclusively at ajax.nl/shop, with delivery expected in January 2022. The extra stock will also be available from January 2022 on adidas.com.
Edwin van der Sar, CEO Ajax: "We have never seen such an extreme demand for an Ajax shirt before. In particular, the international attention was much greater than we had anticipated. Since we also received a lot of feedback from fans on holiday and those living abroad that they have missed out on a shirt, we consulted adidas and Bob Marley's family to see what else is possible."
"Despite the fact that the production and logistics process of the sports industry is currently still significantly disrupted by the impact of COVID-19, a second production run can be started. We want as many of our loyal fans as possible to have the opportunity to own this timeless shirt.”
The shirt is a tribute to the Ajax fans and their shared love for reggae legend Bob Marley and his iconic song ‘Three Little Birds.’ The black uniform has red, yellow, and green details. On the back of the shirt, just below the collar, a subtle reference to the song is visible: three small birds, resting on Amsterdam’s Andrew's crosses, in the three different accent colors.
Edwin van der Sar: "After all these years, I still get goosebumps when our fans sing ‘Three Little Birds’ with all their heart. These are the stories that make the sport so beautiful and illustrate the power of fans. I am grateful to Bob Marley's family for the collaboration and the way in which they have also embraced Ajax."
