Umbro teamed up with the Joe Strummer Foundation to donate a football jersey to charity, raising money for the foundation and the projects it supports.
Clash frontman Joe Strummer was a huge football fan, using the game as a way to bring the band together during rehearsals.
According to a press release, “During rehearsals at Pimlico’s Vanilla Studios for the London Calling recording in 1979, he and the rest of the Clash played a lot of 5-a-side football and used football as a means to the band bring it together., make it more unified and play it as one. Children from the area came knocking on the door and asked them to knock “.
JSF FC’s “Strummer United” campaign aims to promote equality, inclusion and diversity, while providing opportunities for young people.
The Umbro x Joe Strummer Foundation Jersey features a unique Strummer football motif, with the back of each jersey emblazoned with “STRUMMER 22” player details. The red vermilion shirt is made from 100% recycled polyester.
All proceeds from the £ 50 shirt go to the Joe Strummer Foundation and its various national projects.
The limited edition charity shirt can be purchased here.
