#ArisetotheAviva: Our FAI Cup preview video

Sligo Rovers players, officials, supporters and more give an alternative version of a WB Yeats poem to explain how they are looking forward to the FAI Ford Cup final. And then recap just how it was made. 
 
Tickets for the FAI Ford Cup final are on sale in Tesco Arcade in Sligo every day until the final on Sunday 3rd November at 3:30pm. 
 
Use our hashtag #ArisetotheAviva in the next 11 days and thanks to the stars of the Sligo Rovers comedy channel. A huge thanks to Stephen Travers, the club's video analyst, for helping make the video. 

I will arise and go now, and go to the Aviva Stadium
And tens of thousands there, of dreams they are made
Nine lives I hope to have ther
Dropping from the veils of morning to where the Bit o' Red will sing
There midnight's all a-glimmer, even from Tyneside they will go
And evening full of partying.
 
I will arise and go now, for Rovers night and day
I hear the town arising, low sounds by the shore
While I break down this roadway, or not on pavements gray
I hear it in, our deep heart's core
 
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
I will Arise to the Aviva
