Presidents Cup 2020 | Dundalk v Shamrock Rovers | Sunday 9th February

Post by oldfogey » Sat Jan 11, 2020 1:56 am

Although the club website fixture list has no kickoff time listed for this game, their interview with Darragh Leahy has it advertised as 12AM.

I'm hoping it's just a "default" time until they make a definite decision (12AM is midnight), but having seen the Bohs - Rovers fixture moved to Saturday at 2pm, anything is possible.

Midnight matches would be a interesting innovation - especially with Rovers fans visiting!!

The kick off time has not been announced yet - possibly awaiting a TV broadcast decision

Jaysus most Christmas "midnight mass" events have been moved to a 9pm kickoff due to a large portion of unruly spectators so just imagine the scene at a Dundalk Rovers midnight match :-)

With a full round of National League fixtures scheduled for that day I would expect that RTE and Eir Sport will be wall to wall football. Dubs are home to Cork which might reduce the Rovers crowd.

On the other hand Louth v Limerick will probably boost the home support.
