A big crowd is expected at Oriel Park this evening for our final SSE Airtricity League Premier Division game of the season against Derry City. Kickoff is at 7.45pm. Supporter information is below.
In light of the rising COVID-19 figures, we are asking all supporters, and particularly those in the stand, to wear a mask inside the stadium this evening.
COVID-19 guidelines will be on display and hand sanitiser will also be available at the entrance to, and in all areas of the ground.
We encourage all of our own supporters, and the travelling Derry City fans, to stay and look out for one other.
Presentations to the Dundalk FC 2021 Player of the Year (Andy Boyle), 2021 Top Goalscorer (Patrick Hoban) and the 1903 Supporters Club Player of the Month for October (Sean Murray) will take place at 7.25pm.
Patrick McEleney will be presented with his 2021 Goal of the Season award at half-time.
We would like to remind all of our supporters that the use of flares, smoke bombs, canisters and fireworks is not only extremely dangerous but will lead to the club being fined by the FAI.
The atmosphere – and level of support that has been shown to the team at Oriel Park – over the past three months has been nothing short of incredible.
Our new owners want that support to continue tonight – and into 2022 – but are calling on all of our supporters to do it in a manner that will not cause serious injury to their fellow fans or cost the club financially.
Bring your banners, bring your flags and bring the noise – but please, leave the flares and fireworks at home.
A huge word of thanks to everyone from Keystone Insurance who have kindly sponsored tonight’s game with Derry City.
Based on the Newry Road in Dundalk, Keystone stand for simplicity in an industry that loves jargon.
