Bohemians raise awareness for homelessness with new sponsor

Bohemians FC have launched their new women's team jersey which will help raise awareness for the homelessness in Dublin.

The women's team will be taking part in their inaugural season of the Women’s National League next month.

They will wear the Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) logo on their jerseys for the upcoming season to raise awareness of the homeless crisis and the work being done in ICHH.

This announcement follows on from their partnership with Amnesty International on the men’s kits which shows the huge level of social awareness that the club are trying to raise for very important issues in our society.

Speaking this afternoon ICHH Head of Communications Brian McLoughlin stated:

“We are delighted to partner up with Bohemians and their women’s team as they take part in the new national league.

"Bohemians work hard to raise awareness of some of the major issues in our society and have been great supporters of the work done by our team in ICHH over the last number of years.

"To see a local club do their part to highlight the issue of homelessness is truly inspiring and we hope it will bring the issues of homelessness to the forefront of sport around Dublin.

"Homelessness is an issue that needs to be tackled together as it effects everyone and we want to wish the team the best of luck for the upcoming season."

Meanwhile, Bohemians Commercial Daniel Lambert said this morning about the sponsor:

“The work done by ICHH throughout the city is invaluable. They are a lifeline for the most vulnerable people in our society – those with no place to call home.

"We are proud as a club to use our name and profile to raise awareness on societal and human rights issues which impact upon us all.

"In this case, several of our club members and indeed a board member have actively volunteered with ICHH and see first-hand the challenges faced by people forced to sleep on our streets.”
