Rovers drawn with Shams in semi-final
Sligo Rovers will play Shamrock Rovers in the FAI Ford Cup semi-finals.
The tie will take place on Sunday 6th October in The Showgrounds.
Finalised information, including ticket details, will be available later this week.
Rovers manager Ian Baraclough said: "It is a mouth-watering tie. We knew before the draw that there was no easy game and no matter which team we faced, it would be a difficult prospect.
"But a home draw is something we wanted and it’s a game to really look forward to.
"It is also a tie that both sets of fans will be excited about. There will be huge interest and the incentive is there for everybody to see. It is a chance to reach a cup final at the Aviva Stadium and we will be doing all we can to get there.
"The games between the sides have been very close this season. It will be tight and it may take a moment of brilliant to divide the teams."
