Trophy night – information for supporters
Tonight is trophy night at Oriel Park as Dundalk FC will be presented with the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division trophy after our final league match of the season against St Patrick’s Athletic.
A special night is in store for everyone to enjoy and we are asking supporters for your support and co-operation to make this event a memorable and safe experience.
First of all, we ask that people arrive early and help create a great atmosphere before kick-off, which is at 7.45pm.
We’ll have face painters outside the ground before the game for our younger supporters and we really want to get the place rocking for what promises to be a special night, so we ask that everyone gets in early.
At 7.25pm, we’ll be presenting the 2019 Dundalk FC Awards to our four winners: Supporters’ Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season, Goal of the Season and Supporter of the Year.
So please join us in plenty of time to find out who won each award and to pay tribute to the winners.
We’ll then enjoy the action on the pitch as Vinny Perth’s men look to finish the league campaign with a win over Stephen O’Donnell’s side, and with it crown an unbeaten league campaign at home for the Lilywhites – something last achieved in 2014.
At the final whistle, we appeal to all spectators stay off the pitch for just a few minutes to allow our security team and volunteers to assemble the platform for the trophy presentation.
The club wants our supporters to join us on the pitch to celebrate with the team, but we first need to create a safe area for the presentation whilst enabling all spectators, including wheelchair users, to enjoy this special occasion.
So we ask that all spectators work with us to get things set up as quickly as possible and then to allow our supporters in wheelchairs access to the presentation area, so that they can join in the celebrations with everyone else.
So please DO NOT come on to the pitch until our PA announcer gives the go ahead. The whole process will only take a few minutes and we thank you for your co-operation in advance.
It’s been another special season at Oriel Park and to lift the SSE Airtricity Premier Division for the fifth time in six years is an incredible achievement, so let’s enjoy a special night safely and celebrate together a wonderful achievement for Dundalk FC, the town and the whole community.
