Derry City are to receive over 7,000 tickets for next month’s FAI Cup final against St Patrick’s Athletic.
Tickets, priced adult €10 (£8), children £5 (£4), will go on sale at City’s last home league game of the season against UCD at the Brandywell this Friday and will be available from all the usual ticket outlets across the city from Saturday onwards.
City have been drawn as the “home” team for the final and will wear the red and white “Candystripes” with fans being housed in the North Stand and areas of the East and West Stands (same as 2012).
Search protocols will be in operation and anyone caught attempting to take flares into the ground will have the flares and tickets confiscated and refused entry into the stadium.
Anyone with excess alcohol taken will also be refused admission.
Supporters clubs will be allowed to put their banners up on the morning of the final. No other (home made) banners will be permitted unless they are made of fire retardant material.
The game will kick off at 3.30pm with gates in the Aviva Stadium opening at 1:00pm.
City supporters’ buses will be parked on Sean Moore Road just outside Sandymount Village.
