100 fans set to attend Friday’s match

Sligo Rovers can confirm that 100 supporters will be permitted to attend Friday’s SSE Airtricity Premier Division game with Bohemians.

Following updated regulations by the government on the six-month plan for Covid-19, The Showgrounds can admit 100 fans from today. 

As part of our commitment to loyal supporters, the club will now use our season ticket holder database to randomly select those that can attend.

The match with Dundalk last month was due to be played in front of a small number of fans who had not yet attended a game and were successful in the ballot. 

However a change in regulations meant they could not attend. Those fans will now be contacted to inform them that they can instead be at The Showgrounds for Friday’s game.

The rest of the places in the 100 allocation will come from season ticket holders who have not attended a game since Covid-19 regulations came in. They too will be contacted shortly. Our match night personnel needed for each game and the daily running of the club will also be in place to ensure a safe event takes place. 

We thank our supporters for the incredible backing they given us in the last six months and look forward to welcoming even more fans for the remaining two home games if possible. 

Friday’s match is live on RTE2 and worldwide on WATCHLOI.
