Dundalk FC supporters are being urged not to travel to Sunday’s SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture with Derry City at the Ryan McBride Brandywell, as they will not gain entry to the ground.
All 1,150 tickets for the game have been sold but a Derry City official has issued the following guidelines, saying that no away supporters will be permitted access to the stadium due to the club’s agreement with the Derry City and Strabane District Council.
“Unfortunately, we are still unable to accommodate away supporters at the Ryan McBride Brandywell,” he said.
“Any Dundalk fans presenting with valid tickets will be refused entry by gate staff as part of the City Council’s risk assessment agreement.
“Some Drogheda United fans bought tickets online for the league game at Brandywell last week but we had no choice to refuse them entry to the game.
“This was very disappointing for them after such a long trip but it is our council and club’s guidance.”
Sunday’s game will be streamed live on LOITV. A match pass costs just €5. LMFM will also be providing live commentary.
