Ajax website crashes due to demand for Bob Marley shirt
Ajax Amsterdam

One of the worst kept secrets this summer was the plan for Ajax Amsterdam to release a Bob Marley tribute shirt as part of their 2021/22 portfolio with countless leaks emerging online.

Reggae star Marley's 'Three Little Birds' has become something of a club anthem for the Dutch side with the track getting a regular airing before games at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

The Adidas produced (released in conjunction with the Marley Estate) shirt went on sale on Friday morning with the reaction surprising many with the official Ajax site having to briefly issue a queuing system on the official club website to satisfy the high volumes of traffic with fans anxious to get their hands on one of the Marley tribute shirts.
