Three Little Birds and AFC Ajax: How Bob Marley's Song Became an Anthem in Amsterdam

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 3 years ago

This is the story of how AFC Ajax found their song. Bob Marley's Three Little Birds has become part of the club's traditions, but it began in Jamaica and travelled through Wales and England before it was cemented into Ajax folklore for good when Bob's son Ky-Mani Marley sang it with the fans in the stadium.

Ajax. A club from the greatest, legalised weed city in the world, whose anthem is a Bob Marley tune.

I'll never forget Ajax - Juventus 2019, start of second half, we were singing that song, and David Neres scored 46th minute the 1-1, what a moment! ❌❌❌

Thanks B/R Football for conning me into doing this, claiming you’re working for Ajax and telling me that you were going to take me and my son to the stadium. Didn’t hear a word from you even after although I did it for free and arranged a free location - Cardiff Castle - for the interview too. Nice one! 👍🏾

Imagine if Ajax lift their 5th European cup and the entire stadium belts out this legendary banger...Goosebumps even thinking about it.

I went to Amsterdam in Dec 2019 (my only Euro trip to date) and I unfortunately couldn't catch an Ajax game but the city just gave me good vibes and this video has confirmed that ❤️

I remember them singing this song at half team when they played spurs semi finals I thought it was one of the most beautiful scenes in football

My favorite sports moment with music was after the 2013 Boston marathon bombing, Shane Victorino of the Red Sox use to walk out to this. The whole city would sing along. Peace, love and happiness prevailed.
