Showgrounds secured for Viking game

We are delighted to announce that our UEFA Europa Conference League Third Round 2nd-Leg game against Viking will take place at home in The Showgrounds on Thursday August 11th at 7pm.

The club have worked tirelessly since the final whistle last night to secure the game here in front of our home supporters and it has now been confirmed by UEFA.

There was a possibility of having to stage the game at Tallaght Stadium in Dublin but this now means European Football will once again be back here in Sligo.

We wish to thank UEFA for their help and especially our association, The FAI.

There are a number of extra measures needed to help bring the ground up to speed but there will be no temporary stand and capacity will remain around the same as our game with Motherwell on Thursday night.

The club will now work on putting all these measures in place ahead of the game.
