Cork City fans urged to get their tickets ahead of huge clash with Dundalk

CORK City fans are bring urged and encouraged to buy their match tickets early for Saturday’s ‘clash of the champions’ when Dundalk come to Turner’s Cross for a 3pm kick-off.

The biggest game of the season so far on Leeside is ‘live’ on RTÉ television and the national station are also doing a ‘live’ radio broadcast from the Curragh Road venue this weekend.

Tickets for the big game between the FAI Cup holders and the defending league champions are on sale and available from all usual outlets.

Club Operations manager and secretary, Enna Buckley said that a crowd in excess of 6,000 is expected and that’s why match patrons and supporters are encouraged to purchase in advance to avoid disappointment.

Tickets can be purchased online from Ticketmaster and from the usual outlets at the Cork City FC club shop, Douglas Village Shopping Centre, SoHo Bar on the Grand Parade and the Beer Garden on Evergreen Road.

Ticket prices are €15 for adults, €10 for juveniles (13-18 year olds) and €5 for U13s/Senior Citizens.

Meanwhile, as a result of Limerick fielding an ineligible player in their MSC tie with Cobh, they have been disqualified from the competition. Ramblers will take Limerick's place in the semi-finals, where we will play Wilton United. The disciplinary committee of the Munster FA found that Limerick were guilty of fielding an ineligible player in Rodrigo Tosi at St Colman's Park.

However, Cobh's EA Sports Cup clash tonight against Avondale has been postponed, as a mark of respect to the late Derry defender Ryan McBride.
