Bohs go blue with release of new 3rd kit

The coronavirus quasi-lockdown hasn't deterred Bohemians from releasing their new 3rd jersey. 

A blue shirt with yellow trim, it was supposed to have made its debut away to Cork City last Friday, but - along with every other domestic game - it was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 3rd shirt follows the most talked-about jersey in the league. The Bohs away jersey swapped their recently-returned sponsor of Des Kelly Interiors, with the Amnesty International-inspired 'Refugees Welcome' motif.

The new 3rd kit (as modelled by Bohs defender Rob Cornwall) has gone on sale at the club's online shop at a critical time for all SSE Airtricity League clubs.

With all games in the league suspended until March 29 at the earliest, club finances across both divisions have been placed in a perilous state.

Cork City chairman Declan Carey encouraged fans to keep buying tickets for matches, even if they're not going ahead to keep money flowing into clubs.

Carey told Newstalk Breakfast, "That kind of financial support is crucial at the moment, and will certainly alleviate some of the challenges and risks that we face."

Speaking to Off The Ball last week, Sligo Rovers treasurer David Rowe laid out the stark reality facing clubs, "Certainly, for the five or six Premier Division clubs that are in the same boat as ourselves and then First Division clubs.

"Nobody goes on when their income is 10% [of what it was] with full costs and we can't either.

"No League of Ireland club – other than maybe the top two and the couple of strongly supported benefactor clubs – are in a position to do that."
With that in mind, you can find the shops of respective clubs by clicking into the list below, if you can afford to give them any kind of purchasing support over the next few weeks.
