“The jersey features a special embroidery around the FAI crest and a pink ribbon on the sleeve.

The Irish Senior International Team sponsored by 3 mobile will support the cause by wearing the kit in the warm-up for Wednesdayâ„¢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.”

We’re big fans of limited edition releases here at, they’re a great reason for fans to part with their money for a great cause, and it’s kind of fun to see brands a players wear something a little out of the ordinary (like the pink adiZero) to raise awareness.

As far as we know, this Pink Ireland Shirt might be one of the first International shirts to get behind a charity in such a visible way, with maybe the Puma Africa Unity Shirt the only other one coming to mind immediately.

What do you think of this release from the FAI?

    Great shirt for a great cause. However, the margin in football shirts is huge so I’m very disappointed that they are only donating 10% from each shirt sale to charity.

    I think the idea of the pink ireland shirt is alright nice colour goes with the sponsor but like most people dissapionted with only 10 percent to charity is bad but 7.8 – 10 Rating.
