The FAI has confirmed that 6,000 fans will be able to attend the second leg of Bohemians' Europa Conference League qualifier with Stjarnan of Iceland.

The game is due to take place at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday, July 15th as part of the Government's pilot for the safe return of spectators to Irish sport.

Bohemians Chief Operating Officer Daniel Lambert said: "We are delighted as a club to facilitate the return of fans to the Aviva Stadium for our UEFA Europa Conference League game with Stjarnan.

"The recent return of supporters to Dalymount Park, even in such small numbers, has been a real boost for everyone involved with the club so this news is really welcome today.

"We will now communicate with our fans and the Irish football public on the sale and distribution of tickets for this game and look forward to the match and a great atmosphere at the Aviva."

FAI CEO Jonathan Hill added: "This is another step forward in our Return to Watch programme and we welcome the confirmation that 6,000 fans can attend the Bohemians versus Stjarnan game in the new UEFA Europa Conference League, the biggest crowd at an Irish football game since the pandemic began.

"This is a major boost as we look to get supporters back to League of Ireland and Women's National League football at pre-pandemic levels and the addition of the Aviva Stadium as a test venue is significant as we look to get our fans back into the ground for the big World Cup games in September."

The upcoming SSE Airtricity Premier Division, First Division and Women’s National League fixtures to feature in the pilot scheme will now include the Bray Wanderers and Cobh Ramblers game at the Carlisle Grounds on Friday with a crowd of 600 fans.

Shamrock Rovers can welcome 1,000 fans to Tallaght Stadium for Friday night’s game against Dundalk, while Longford Town can admit 500 fans for Saturday’s fixture against Sligo Rovers.

Spectator numbers at all Irish football grounds will increase from Saturday, July 3rd in line with stadium capacity.
