It must have been an exciting summer for the top Dutch football club, Ajax when it was decided that the team would be trying out their new Bob Marley inspired “Three little Birds” kit for the 2021-2022 season.
The new kit was worn by the team recently in their victorious away match to PEC Zwolle, in the Eredivise football league.
Amid their celebrations, however, Ajax later learned that their new kit had been banned by the UEFA organization, as being illegal imagery, because they have a law that states that only the logos of the team can be displayed on the collar of the shirt.
It must have been disappointing to hear that news, especially when the team was aware that even Cedella Marley, the daughter of the legendary Bob Marley, approved of the kit.
The “Three Little Birds” song was adopted by Ajax in 2008 at the Cardiff City Stadium, which then saw the sensational reggae classic become the official anthem for the Dutch football club.
