UMBRO HAVE REVEALED a limited edition centenary jersey to mark the 100th anniversary of the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).

Umbro provided a first look at the new shirt on Twitter earlier today, posting teaser images throughout the day before revealing both a home and goalkeeper jersey this evening.

The blue home jersey – described as ‘St Patrick’s blue’ – contains a simple design with a retro shamrock crest and discreet blue-on-blue Umbro logo.

The ‘St Patrick’s blue’ colour of the shirt is a nod to the colour of the very first Republic of Ireland kit.

The goalkeeper jersey sticks to the minimal design, with the only change a switch from blue to bright yellow. 

Both shirts can be pre-ordered online now ahead of their release on 1 October, with an adult jersey priced at €82.
