Umbro teams up with the Joe Strummer Foundation for a charity football jersey

Umbro has partnered with the Joe Strummer Foundation to release a charity football jersey, raising money for the foundation and the projects it supports.

Clash frontman Joe Strummer was a huge football fan, having used the game as a way to bring the band together during rehearsals.

According to a press release, “During rehearsals at Vanilla Studios in Pimlico for the recording of London Calling in 1979; he and the rest of the Clash played a lot of 5-a-side matches and used football as a way to bring the group together, bring them together and play together. The neighborhood children came knocking on the door and asked them to play.

JSF FC’s ‘Strummer United’ campaign aims to promote equality, inclusiveness and diversity, while providing opportunities for young people.

The Umbro x Joe Strummer Foundation jersey features an exclusive Strummer football design, with the back of each jersey adorned with ‘STRUMMER 22’ player detailing. The vermilion red jersey is made of 100% recycled polyester.

All proceeds from the shirt, priced at £50, go to the Joe Strummer Foundation and its various national projects.

The limited edition charity shirt is available for purchase here.

In other news, it was announced in April that The Clash would be releasing a special edition of their classic “Combat Rock” album.

The album, which arrived on May 20, is titled “Combat Rock / The People’s Hall” and features 12 additional tracks compiled by surviving members of The Clash. Additionally, the band’s collaborations with the late Ranking Roger received their first-ever official release in a separate two-track EP.
