Ireland Limited Edition Umbro Pink Ribbon Shirt

Umbro official sponsor of the Football Association of Ireland are delighted to unveil a special one off “Limited Edition” Pink version of the Ireland Home Jersey.

The jersey features a special embroidery around the FAI crest and a pink ribbon on the sleeve. The Irish Senior International Team will support the cause by wearing the kit in the warm-up for Wednesday’s International friendly game against Norway at the Aviva Stadium. 10% of the retail value of each jersey will be donated to Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society.

The Jersey will be beautifully packaged in a one off commemorative pink gift box and it will make a great Christmas present while contributing to a fantastic cause. The jerseys will go on sale on Friday December 3rd EXCLUSIVELY from the FAI partner stores listed below. You can pre-order your kit now at the FAIshop. The sizes available are SB, MB, LB (junior) XLB S M L XL XXL (adults) and 8 10 12 14 16 (ladies). The price of the shirt is €65 for adults and €50 for junior sizes. Demand is sure to be high so pre-order yours online today or book it at your local store to avoid disappointment.

Commenting on the announcement Jonathan Courtenay, Director of football at Umbro said;
 
 “I’m delighted that we have been able to put this great initiative together. It is sure to be a winner and I’m delighted to be working with the Irish Cancer Society again after the success of the pink jerseys Umbro did for the League of Ireland champions Shamrock Rovers and for Bohemian FC in 2009. The Rovers Pink kit sold out in 3 days and I think with this being an Ireland shirt we would hope for a similar record sell-out time. I would also like to thank our FAI/Umbro partner stores and 3 mobile for their support of the project. I’d advise anyone who wants one to act fast and pre-order it on-line as the initial interest has been huge”.
 
Commenting on the announcement Jim O’Malley of the Irish Cancer Society said;
 
"We are absolutely delighted that Umbro is working with Action Breast Cancer. Through their support, Umbro has played an important lead in fundraising for this increasingly common and often life-altering disease. One in 11 women living in Ireland will develop breast cancer during their lifetime so it is imperative that we continue to promote the breast awareness message and continue to raise vital funds enabling Irish scientists to find new therapies to prevent breast cancer, better techniques to diagnose it accurately and ultimately new treatments which will cure it. Umbro is coming up with fresh and exciting ways to raise funds and we hope that in the future we will see more initiatives like this.”

OK fair enough I suppose but I wish male sports would at least put just 10% as much effort into raising funds for male cancers... :-?

Breast cancer effect 15% of males Directly, however I must agree with RMB it would be nice for football to put more funds into testicular / prostrate cancer research etc.

how about a yellow shirt for testicular cancer??? livestrong and nike might have something to say about that though. and there lies the problem, IMO . there is no universal colour for "male cancers" as with breast cancer, which is universally pink.

i dont think it matters about the colour, its more the charity. if england released a blue third shirt, i wouldnt buy it, but if they released a blue third shirt with proceeds going to charity, then i'd buy that one instead of the away one.

I don't think Nike would have a big problem with that. They own Umbro after all.

.. as stated this is a fantastic idea for the shirts and be fair, either way with, as stated cancer effecting so many of our daughters, mums, nans, etc the fact the money is going into the chairty is a plus. Considering the mark ups on football shirt though... 10% c'mon umbro you can do better. £4 per shirt? Double it and the gesture would be even more remarkable

10% is a miserable figure. the charity will get £4 a shirt, whereas the FAI will get what, around £25-30 in profits. its a nothing shirt, they could at least wear it for just one game, instead of the 'warm up' where they'll probably be wearing jackets anyway.

I couldn't agree more.
If they are going to do this, it should be done properly, with a much larger percentage going to the charity. Otherwise, it shows that this is, quite blatantly, just a way of using a charitable cause in order to sell more replica shirts.

i think a pink jersey for breast cancer is a brilliant idea and if people are that shallow to slag it they need there head checked. breast cancer effects a lot of familys (including mine) and any amount of money that goes towards the cause will make a great difference.

But why, oh why, must "3" ruin the shirt with their hideous logo?
Sposor logos on national shirts, even the ones just for the fans or charity, or whatever, is a slippery slope.

What the funk does "3" have to do with Ireland?

It ruins a otherwise nice shirt for me.

If they said 50% of the proceeds it would show it is more than a marketing exercise.

As it stands, it's a token gesture. One for bollock cancer might be an idea too, though I have no no idea which colour they would choose for that.

10%.. pathetic. We all know how much shirts cost to make - a hell of a lot less than the retail price. So on the basis it's already making a whopping profit - how insulting that the cause it was designed for gets £40 per shirt.

It's been made to raise awareness - fair enough. But primarily it's riding on the back of the current trend of awareness in order to make, first and foremost, money for Umbro.

I'd rather stick twice the £4 in the fund and NOT buy one just on the principles

This is a common practice here in North America, that often done by Junior hockey teams in Canada, semi-pro teams, and entire professional leagues (NHL with Hockey Fights Cancer, and more recently with the NFL and MLB devoting an entire month to fundraising) With football, each country that decides to do these charity shirts, should make them for a specific match, have the players wear them, then auction them with all the proceeds from the auction going to the charity, in this case, the Irish Cancer Society. Also, selling replicas with 25% or so going to the charity would be a great gesture as well.

Why is it like Cancer is the only disease out there. What about Aids, Downs Synsdrome etc etc. Everything seems to be Cancer related like its the only disease that matters.
