The Dublin-based Bohemians have signed a new kit deal with Diadora, the Italian sportswear company.
The six figure deal should certainly give the club a boost over the three-year contract. The move will see the Bohemians return to their traditional red and black stripes for the home kit, although a slightly less traditional design will be used for the away kit.
Bohemians commercial manager Peter Halpin stated, "We are delighted with this deal and the quality of product for both the players and supporters is fantastic.
We are sure the fans will be delighted with a return to our traditional colours and know that they will be very happy with our new away kit, which promises to be very different to anything the club has worn previously."
