Sligo Rovers chief executive Colin Feehily said: “We’re very pleased that we’ll have our biggest attendance in well over a year for this fixture. 

“We’d like to thank the FAI, Mark Scanlon and all of the relevant bodies for facilitating the increased attendance. 

“In recent days we have begun to work on a plan to ensure that the event will take place in line with the strictest guidelines. We are increasing our matchday operation services even further to ensure a safe and enjoyable evening for everyone. 

“We can’t wait to see 400 fans in the stadium and already the uptake of our virtual ticket has been excellent so we encourage all of our fans to buy as soon as possible in order to stream the game.”
